Colorado Statutes Regarding Deadly Physical Force and Carrying
Concealed Weapons


4 Use Of Physical Force In Defense Of A Person
1. Except as provided in subsections (2) and (3) of this section, a person is justified
in using physical force
upon another person in order to defend himself or a third person in order to defend
himself or a third person
from what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of unlawful physical
force by that other
person, and he may use a degree of force which he reasonably believes to be
necessary for that purpose.
2. Deadly physical force may be used only if a person reasonably believes a lesser
degree of force is
inadequate and:
(a.) The actor has reasonable ground to believe, and does believe, that he
or another person is in
imminent danger of being killed or of receiving great bodily injury; or
(b.) The other person is using or reasonably appears about to use physical
force against an
occupant of a dwelling or business establishment while committing or
attempting to commit
burglary as defined in sections 18-4-202 to 18-4-204
; or
(c.) The other person is committing or reasonably appears about to commit
kidnapping as defined
in section 18-3-301 or 18-3-302, robbery as defined in section 18-4-301 or
18-4-302, sexual
assault as set forth in section 18-3-402 or 18-3-403 as it existed prior to
July 1, 2000, or assault as
defined in sections 18-3-202 or 18-3-203.
3. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (1) of this section, a person is not
justified in using
physical force if:
(a.) With intent to cause bodily injury or death to another person, he
provokes the use of unlawful
physical force by that other person; or
(b.) He is the initial aggressor, except that his use of physical force upon
another person under the
circumstances is justifiable if he withdraws from the encounter and
effectively communicates to
the other person his intent to do so, but the latter nevertheless continues or
threatens the use of
unlawful physical force
; or
(c.) The physical force involved is the product of a combat by agreement
not specifically
authorized by law.

right to expect absolute
safety within their own homes
.
2. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 18-1-704, any occupant of a dwelling is
justified in using any
degree of physical force, including deadly physical force, against another person
when that other person has
made an unlawful entry into the dwelling
, and when the occupant has a reasonable
belief that such other
person has committed a crime in the dwelling in addition to the uninvited entry, or is
committing or intends
to commit a crime against a person or property in addition to the uninvited entry,
and when the occupant
reasonably believes that such other person might use any physical force, no matter
how slight,
against any
occupant.
