to possess a handgun pursuant to federal and state law the same authority
to carry a concealed handgun as a person who holds a permit to carry a
concealed handgun (permit). A person who carries a concealed handgun
without a permit has the same rights, limitations, and authority to carry as
a person who holds a permit. A person may obtain a permit for the
purpose of using the permit to carry a concealed handgun in another state
that recognizes a Colorado permit.

concealed carry of a handgun, including repealing the authority of special
districts and the governing boards of institutions of higher education, as
