Actually, concealed weapons are allowed in Colorado. In 2003, weasel-faced Gov. Billy Bob Owens signed this law into effect.
Texas really is a parallel universe. I say this with first-hand knowledge, having spent 4.5 long years in Austin... which is wildly progressive as Texas goes. My theory is this: Texas is this weird collision of the Deep South and the Wild West. Guns and Bibles rule. The whole western movie mythology of white-hatted "good guys" riding into town and blowing away the black hatted "bad guys" figures high into the Texas mindset. Black and white. Good and evil. Bush exploited that overly simplistic view to the hilt. Texans don't wanna deal with no danged "gray areas". Their little brains only comprehend absolutes. Certainly there are exceptions to this brainlessness in the Lone Star State, but the butt-headed Bubbas run the show.

But why do so many of our truly stupid ideas come from Texas?
Is it the water? Is it the air?
