Colorado State University bans guns on campus

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hh07K...


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.

1. Local LEO refuses to enforce.
administrative position does not trump state law. How many shootings have been done by legal ccw holders.

4. Departmental. They will not enforce an administrative policy
that does not comply with state law. That would be like a policy banning pickup trucks.

15. Of course, the police will always armed.
Unless you live in the UK, even university security don't have guns and have to rely on the actual armed response unit of the police in the area to deal with armed incidents.

Campus Bans Nerf Guns, Zombies In Peril
A Colorado campus has banned Nerf guns, which are used as a part of college game.



BOULDER, Colo. (December 4, 2009)Officials have banned Nerf guns from the campus of the University of Colorado in Boulder, where the guns were used as part of a game called Humans Versus Zombies in which members of the human team can free the zombies for 15 minutes by shooting them with the toy guns.

Campus officials say students can still play what amounts to a game of tag, but must used balled-up socks to free the zombies because the Nerf guns could be mistaken for real weapons.

Some call the ban silly, pointing out that Nerf guns are yellow and orange and obviously no t real, but campus police disagree, saying that if the guns are painted black, they do indeed resemble real weapons.
