In Colorado, as in many parts of the country there seems to be a problem with people masquerading as police officers. I have never heard of a case where it happened, but it is possible for a person pretending to be a cop to completely disarm an individual by simply asking for his/her weapon as many cops do when engaged in a traffic stop. I have always felt this practice was a violation of rights, even if the weapon is surrendered temporarily but I also feel that because of situations like this it is a dangerous thing to do.
