To be delivered to: The Colorado State Senate and Governor John Hickenlooper
Anyone with a concealed carry gun permit is currently allowed to carry on the campus of all state-supported universities and colleges. A bill will soon arrive on Governor Hickenlooper's desk that will add campuses to the list of places where concealed carry is banned, like K through 12 schools. There is more to this than the safety issue resulting from a mix of guns and often highly emotional young adults. A major issue is the toxic atmosphere that would ensue if guns might be present during heated classroom debates or when an emotional student is given a failing grade. The classroom is no place for guns. The governor should sign this bill.
