  • Victory for Concealed Carry on Colorado Campuses

    Gun in backpack2Even though the Colorado state Senate will pass some gun control measures, including a ban on high-capacity magazines and stricter background checks, college students gained a victory when a lawmaker pulled his bill that would have banned concealed carry on state campuses.  

    State Senator Rollie Heath pulled his own legislation off the floor late Friday evening, after 7 hours of contention debate on gun control-related bills. 

    "In committee, we heard from young women, who had tragic situations on campus where they felt a gun was needed for self- defense," Heath said. 

    From The Denver Post post

    The Colorado legislature in 2003 passed the Concealed Carry Act, which states a person with a permit may carry a concealed weapon "in all areas of the state," except for a narrow list of exceptions, such as federal properties, K-12 schools, the state Capitol. 

                But the law didn't include colleges, and three University of Colorado students sued in 2008 in a case that went all the way to the state Supreme Court, which unanimously ruled the CU Board of Regents overstepped its authority by banning permitted concealed weapons on campuses. 

                House Bill 1226 would have specifically banned concealed weapons in any building or structure used by a public institution of higher education. Further, the bill would have banned. 

     A great victory for freedom and the Second Amendment!

    • There are certainly a vairtey of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to convey up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where an important thing shall be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I'm sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the influence of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
