The Second Amendment Colorado Style

People in other states talk about the Second Amendment. They carry little pistols in their jackets (with "must issue" concealed weapon permits), or put a shotgun on a rack in their pickup trucks. But, you really haven't seen hard core gun enthusiasts until you come to Colorado. Last weekend, on I-70, I was driving behind a civilian van toting a small howitzer behind it on a trailer, similar to, but not identical to, the M8 75mm Pack Howitzer shown above, but with a slightly shorter copper barrel and a slightly smaller tow appartus.

Do you need a permit for that?

(I suspect that it was used for sound effects at the Rapids game.)
