Possession may be nine-tenths of the law...

... but permission is the remaining 10%, at least for minors in Colorado who wish to possess handguns.  But a judge has convicted the teenager in this case with unauthorized possession of a handgun, despite the minor's parents testifying that he had permission to handle the firearms.  This is one of those cases where a judge so clearly favors one particular outcome that he ignores the law.

Hopefully it will be reversed on appeal.

The alternative is for anyone learning to handle a firearm while still a minor, even under adult supervision, to face potential legal peril.
