    Son's College Fund versus Attorney's Fees...

    Here is a relevant snippet:
    “The most interesting aspect of this controversy is that Colorado state law does NOT prohibit carrying a weapon on campus with a valid permit. CU and other institutions of higher learning are relying on policy set by the Regents of the university and a Formal Opinion, No. 03-03, by then Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar that university policy trumps state law. While I do respect Ken Salazar, there is enough grey area in the cited case laws to think that another attorney or a court could come to a different conclusion.”

    CSU does not prohibit CCW while CU does not based on state law but the Attorney General’s opinion.

    Here is a link to the Ken Salazar’s opinion:

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah, I've seen the articles and the former AG opinion. However, they dont' call it the "People's Republic of Boulder" for nothin'. Truth be told, I have carried, briefly, when picking up my son to drive him home for a weekend visit - Walking to his room, knocking, and then going back to the car. (my wife's truck does not have a locking compartment inside, and I forgot the lock box - rather keep it where I can control it).

    But, CU Boulder doesn't see the world the same way the Larimer County Sheriff does - thus the title of my post.
