CSU holds off on forming concealed-weapons policy
FORT COLLINS, Colorado ” Colorado State University is putting off developing its own policy for concealed weapons on campus until a lawsuit challenging the policy at the University of Colorado is resolved.
Plaintiffs of the lawsuit filed last year disagree with CU over whether state law allows the university to ban guns on its own campus.
CSU currently uses the default state law, which allows concealed weapons for people with permits. Weapons are banned from CSU residence halls and university-run apartments.
CSU’s Faculty Council in December asked the university to develop a campus-specific policy regarding the carrying of concealed weapons.
Interim Provost Rick Miranda this week said CSU leaders are “comfortable” with the existing policy.
