The many forms of menacing

We all have seen our share of B-grade movies about menacing. The evil villain skulks in dark alleyways, basements, maybe in the woods, twirling his moustache with a sardonic smile on his face while waiting for his unsuspecting victim to come near. Then he pounces on her and hauls her off to his cabin, laboratory or wherever he intends to imprison her. Sometimes the plot is so silly that the movie is downright funny. If you face charges of menacing in Colorado, however, this is no laughing matter.

About Colorado's gun laws

Colorado has a relatively permissive attitude to gun ownership, due in large part to its western heritage and vibrant hunting culture. With a concealed carry permit, a gun owner is free to carry a legally-allowed weapon on his or her person, or to transport a gun in a vehicle. He or she can also possess a gun in a restaurant, bar, or business, provided that the owner of the establishment has not expressly forbidden the practice. Permit holders can even carry a gun openly, except in Denver.

What counts as a deadly weapon?

You have probably heard of criminal charges such as "assault with a deadly weapon" or "menacing with a deadly weapon." When you hear the term "deadly weapon," you may instinctively think of a rifle or grenade. While those certainly do count as dangerous weaponry used for violent purposes, the definition of a deadly weapon does not stop with them.
