Colorado’s new gun law requiring a background check for any transfer of a firearm has left one woman unarmed.
Now she’s frustrated that her weapon, taken by police for safekeeping after a car accident, isn’t being returned.
Sara Warren said Fort Collins police took her Ruger SR9, which she uses for personal protection in her job as a maid when visiting clients’ homes, after an accident required her to be transported to the hospital.
The police want to give it back, but a new universal background check law passed last year amid much controversy requires a Federal Firearms License background check.
Fort Collins police don’t have an FFL holder on staff.
