Colo. community colleges to allow guns on campus

DENVER (AP) – Concealed weapons will be allowed on 13 community college campuses in Colorado.

Administrators of the state community college system decided Monday to repeal its policy banning concealed weapons from campuses in response to a April 15 court ruling against a similar ban on University of Colorado campuses.

Colorado State University also decided recently to rescind its proposed ban on concealed weapons.

Aims Community College is holding a special meeting Thursday to discuss revising weapons policies on its two campuses. It is not under the Colorado Community College System.

CU continues to enforce its 1994 policy banning weapons from campus. The university has until June 1 to appeal the decision to the Colorado Supreme Court.
