As we have reported, the Colorado State University (CSU) System Board of Governors drafted a proposal that would prohibit firearms on all CSU campuses with exemptions for law enforcement, military and the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC).
On Tuesday, February 23, the Board of Governors approved the proposal. The final approved weapons policy can be found at http://csusystem.edu/pages/documents/CSUWeaponsPolicyFinalasof021710.pdf.
The Board of Governors drafted the policy knowing that it would violate the Colorado state firearm preemption law and the Colorado Uniform Shall-Issue Concealed Carry Law. Current state law strictly regulates the carry or transport of firearms on schools, colleges and universities.
Their vote against concealed carry and self-defense is unfortunate and disappointing. Please contact President Tony Frank TODAY by phone at 970-491-6211 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and respectfully voice your disapproval with the Board of Governor’s actions.
