An updated list

March 14, 2007 - We've once again -- via pro-gun State Senator Scott Renfroe -- requested a list of sheriffs who enter permit holders into the statewide criminal database.  They're listed below, along with the name of the elected official (Sheriff) who made the decision to enter permit holders into that database, and treat you like a criminal.

Remember, Sheriff's offices (and the Denver police) are the only offices now issuing permits. It's voluntary to enter you into that database -- at least right now, though we expect the Chiefs and Sheriffs to attempt to change the law to make it mandatory, thereby removing them from responsibility

You might like your county sheriff personally, and have shot at the range with him.  But make no mistake about it: if a sheriff enters you -- who have jumped through ample and expensive hurdles to get a concealed carry permit -- into a criminal database (CBI has now created a special database for permit holders, but it is accessed the same way and has all the same unsafe implications) your sheriff is NOT a good guy.

Don't let a sheriff snow you with "pro-gun" talk.  They are politicians, and know this is a hot button issue to gun owners.  Hold them accountable by putting heat on them on this issue.

Even the sheriffs who do not enter permit holders into the statewide criminal database may still be guilty by association: their organization -- the County Sheriffs of Colorado -- is the organization driving this issue, and unless a sheriff has fought against this issue within CSOC (by actively opposing HB1174), his organization is the reason you may be treated like a criminial.

RMGO first reported the story about this issue back in December of 2002.  At that time, many of the "gun groups" ignored the issue.

Why would a sheriff want to enter permit holders into that database? Essentially, their claim can be distilled down to keeping records on "persons of interest." What that means is that you are considered a dangerous person, just like a convicted rapist or murderer.

The following Sheriff Departments are entering concealed carry permit holders into CCIC.
