As the Denver Post reports:
Colorado State University may be closer to banning concealed weapons on campus after the school’s board of governors this morning voted unanimously for a weapons policy.
However, the nine-person body is leaving the nuts-and-bolts of a weapons control policy up to the school’s three campus presidents.
“We respect there are many differing opinions on this issue,” said board chairman Patrick McConathy, “but members of the CSU System Board believe this a reasonable, rational and responsible decision for our system.”
CSU is one of the few universities in the country that allows concealed weapons on campus…
Colorado GOP Rep. Kent Lambert Tweets back:
KentLambert Let’s be clear. CSU is in violation of state law, and puts student lives in jeopardy. VA Tech all over again! http://bit.ly/4ELlqc #RSCC
Proponents of the ban say that college campuses are not the same environment as off-campus, and students shouldn’t be packing heat in an academic setting. We, like most residents of the state, tend to favor concealed-carry availability for law abiding citizens–but we understand that not all locations are appropriate for carrying guns, responsibly possessed or not.
Reasonable people can disagree on an issue like this, but once Lambert starts screaming “VA Tech all over again!” over something that’s standard policy on virtually every college campus in the United States, reasonable disagreement time is probably over.
