Governor Hickenlooper, please support campus gun ban

To be delivered to The Colorado State Senate and Governor John Hickenlooper

Petition Statement

Governor Hickenlooper should sign HB 1226 when it arrives on his desk to keep guns out of classrooms in our state-funded institutions of higher learning.
There are currently 546 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
