CO: Man wrongly cited for openly carrying gun at Pride Fest

"Colorado Springs police say an outdated 'cheat sheet' for police officers on city laws may have led to the mistaken arrest of a 24-year-old man for openly carrying a 40-caliber gun at Pride Fest on July 21. According to city and state law for almost a decade, people are allowed to openly carry guns in city parks. 'He was right and we were in the wrong, definitely,' said Barbara Miller, police spokeswoman. That admission doesn’t mean much to James Sorensen, who says he’s looking for a lawyer after he was detained by police for more than an hour that day when police spotted his gun at his side."
