    Rick- It looks like people in Colorado are on edge alittle. Are Perrazis' now going to be banned in Colorado? That is a sad story.

    Hopefully he wasn't miss treated. They have to investigate all calls like that. How many on here could walk down the street & pick him out of a crowd? I couldn't. Sounds like procedures where followed.

    But he was going to a GUN SHOW? Everyone had guns everywhere...makes no sense.
    Mr. Perazzi must have passed through customs with his guns, so someone had to know he was here already.

    And I'd hazard a guess that the value of each of those guns was probably north of $200k

    Used to think I'd want to go the the Colorado state shoot..... after this, not happening. I'll drive 500 miles out of the way to go to Spanish Fork instead.

    Claydotter...please explain your statement "Scumbag lawyers" If I were Mr Perazzi, I'd be suing the pants off the cab company, the cab driver and anyone else involved in being identified/profiled as a terrorist and being detained. Slander, profiling, defamation of character and anything else I could add.

    If you'd been detained....you'd be looking in the yellow pages under Scumbag lawyer too.

    Some of these slow witted idiots need a lesson about making false accusations.

    How does he "carry" seven guns- is there a video?

    Obviously that is BS

    He might have loaded 7 guns one by one into the trunk of the cab.

    Under the homeland security act. Most people with commercial drivers liscences have had to go through training and are told to report suspicious activity and people. Who knows about this cab driver & why he was suspicious of him. If he wasn't doing anything wrong which I'm sure he wasn't. He had nothing to worry about. I'm sure he is alot smarter on the laws in Colorado now. No daddioo I would not be looking for one of those scum bags if it happened to me. I despise people and there scumbags who can't let a little mistake go. Sounds like it was straightened out. If he was not miss treated there should be no harm no foul call. What would you & the scumbags be saying if it was a terrorist and not mr Perrazzi??

    actually more like profiling.

    If it was Bruce Willis, the cabbie probably would have helped him unload the guns, and asked for an autograph...

    Something is not quite right about this story... first of all, I am surprised by the fact that Perrazi was unaided with (7) firearms. Even as the "grandson" I would expect him to be treated as a guest of the event... so no one intervened on his behalf to assist the officers who responded, to verify or confirm the identity of the gentleman? Where were the organizers of the event when this took place?

    I saw the video clip... should have been handled on-site... reprimand the officers if nothing else...

    A little mistake is one thing....but being turned in to the police as a terrorist? That's no little thing, or a small mistake.

    At the very least, they'd be making a very public apology and firing the cabbie.

    To each his own.

    I was also at the gun show in Denver, and according to what I was told by Steve Schreiner, who is an NRA director and a well known gun rights activist in Denver, the only reason he was turned loose AND given back his shotguns was that there was an attorney at the show who accompanied Mr Perazzi to police headquarters and interceded on his behalf. Apparently Mr Perazzi's command of English is limited, and he actually thought he might have done something that was against local laws. Denver police are known to confiscate peoples firearms and refuse to return them, even if no crime was committed. I'll think twice about visiting Denver again.

    Its not all of Colorado, its Denver Metro and the Front Range. Still a sorry thing to do to anybody.

    The report says he is the grandson of the founder of the company. I thought Perazzi was the oldest firearms manufacturing company in the world. Was his grandfather named Methusaleh Perazzi?
