    I just got my CCW permit here in Colorado USA, and now carry every day. I left Canada over 5 years ago and love it here in Colorado for many reasons including the ability to carry concealed (almost nobody gets a permit in Canada except judges & politicians, so the criminals know they have an unarmed populace to exploit).
