Are universities “special”? The University of Colorado is trying to keep concealed guns off campus, in spite of a Colorado appeals-court ruling in April that overturned the university’s 30-year ban on guns. The court cited the state law that allows citizens over 21 to carry concealed guns. While the law includes a few exceptions, including K-12 schools, the court concluded that if the legislature had intended to exempt universities, it would have done so explicitly. But the university is taking the ruling to the Colorado Supreme Court, anyway.
