Colorado Supreme Court Lifts Ban On Concealed Weapons On College Campuses

The Colorado Supreme Court on Monday upheld an appeals court decision that would lift the ban on concealed weapons throughout the University of Colorado system. The 40 year old ban was challenged by three students in 2008, and after a lower court initially sided with the Board of Regents, subsequent rulings overturned the decision. The court ruled that the regents’ ban on concealed weapons was in violation of the state’s Concealed Carry Act. Currently, only Utah explicitly forbids colleges and universities from restricting concealed guns on all public universities.
