Colorado Supreme Court Bans Campus Gun Bans


Foolish consistency may be the hobgoblin of little minds, but inconsistencies in Colorado campus gun bans have lead to the elimination of those regs. Click here for the ruling. The Colorado Supreme decision comes after a long fight—the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners Club posted the video above exactly two years ago. Yesterday, the Supremes ruled that “We hold that the CCA [Colorado Concealed Act] divested the Board of Regents of its authority to regulate concealed handgun possession on campus. Accordingly, we agree with the court of appeals that, by alleging the Policy violates the CCA, the Students have stated a claim for relief. Because we affirm on statutory grounds, we do not consider the Students’ constitutional claim.” Catch that? The campus gun ban fell afoul of state law, not the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Close enough for rock and roll.
