The County Sheriff will not enforce Colorado State University's ban on concealed carry...
The Larimer County Sheriff will refuse to help enforce any concealed carry ban at CSU, student government officials said Wednesday, but permit holders packing heat and the Sheriff's office have little to worry about if student government has any say in the matter.

At its weekly Senate meeting, the Associated Students of CSU passed a resolution supporting the school's existing policy allowing concealed weapons on campus by a vote of 21-3, with one senator abstaining.

The controversial vote came on the heels of the university Safety Committee's recommendation to ban concealed carry on campus and just one day before the CSU System Board of Governors is slated to discuss the issue.

During discussion of the resolution, Sen. David Ambrose, who helped draft the document, read an e-mail statement by Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden saying Alderden's office would "not hold or detain a valid permit holder who violates that policy, nor would his department have anything to do with enforcing that policy."

Alderden also said he did not believe unelected university officials have any authority to enact such a ban, which would "directly counter" Colorado law.

Colorado State University bans guns on campus

By KRISTEN WYATT (AP) 22 hours ago

DENVER Colorado State University's Board of Governors has voted to ban all guns on campus, falling in line with nearly every major college nationwide in prohibiting concealed weapons.

The board voted 7-0 Friday to outlaw firearms concealed or not on its campuses in Fort Collins and Pueblo. Currently, the two campuses are among only a handful in the nation where concealed weapons are lawful with a permit.

Officials say the Colorado State gun ban will leave Utah campuses as the only ones where concealed weapons are allowed.

Colorado State currently follows state law and allows people with permits to carry a gun on campus, although not in residence halls and university-run apartments.
