Reader: After the flood, I open-carried a gun -- and I'm glad I did

We're still collecting reactions to a post about alleged post-flood looting on the CU-Boulder campus; Troy Sennet, seen here, was one of two people arrested.

Among the recent comments is one from a local who decided he felt safer when strapped.

When my girlfriend's parents were evacuated because of the flood in Boulder, they fled their home without securing it before they left to come stay with us. When I accompanied them back to Boulder the following day to secure the home and collect valuables, I was armed. I've never open carried in Boulder before, but that day I was.
