Update on Colorado Lawsuit

As you know, there's a lawsuit against Gov. Hickenlooper to force the repeal of the gun control laws passed in Colorado recently. The lawsuit has spent the last week in trial, with endless testimony from both sides going on through the week. gives a flavor of that testimony.

The testimony cited by the article appears to focus on comparing the needs of police to the needs of citizens.

In other words, given that police have no duty to protect you, and that their sidearms are therefore primarily for their own defense, how can a state claim on one hand that certain popular tools have a self-defense value for police officers but have no such self-defense value for citizens?
