    Colorado Community Colleges lift gun ban.

    I received this email from the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners.

    Yesterday (5/10/10) the Colorado Community College System instructed Colorado's Community Colleges to allow permit holders to carry on campus.

    That directive was written and signed by System President Nancy McCallin. You can read that directive here.

    SYSTEM PRESIDENT’S PROCEDURE
    VIOLENCE/FIREARMS ON CAMPUS
    SP 19-10
    EFFECTIVE: November 13, 1990
    RETITLED: September 14, 2000
    RETITLED: August 25, 2001
    REVISED: August 20, 2003
    REVISED: May 10, 2010
    REFERENCE: Board Policy on Violence/Firearms on Campus, BP 19-10
    APPROVED:
    Nancy J. McCallin, System President
    Application
    This procedure applies to the state system community colleges
    Basis
    Board policy states that no person may have on his or her person any unauthorized
    firearm, ammunition, explosive device, or illegal weapon on campus or any facility used
    by a college.
    Procedure
    Persons authorized to carry firearms and other equipment defined in the policy are:
    1. Those persons conducting and participating in an approved program of
    instruction in the college's curriculum which requires access to such equipment
    as an integral part of the instructional program;
    2. Certified Peace Officers;
    3. Those persons who have been issued a valid permit to carry a concealed
    handgun in accordance with Colorado’s Concealed Carry Act, C.R.S. § 18-12-
    201, et seq. and who are acting in compliance with the requirements of that Act;
    and
    4. Those persons granted permission at the discretion of the College President for
    specific purposes from time to time.
    Pursuant to the policy, College Presidents are responsible for developing procedures
    and regulations pertaining to the use of firearms as a part of a program of instruction
    This applies to all taxpayer funded community colleges in the system. RMGO is working on publishing a list, but expect this directive to take some time to filter down to bureaucrats who, frankly, would rather deny you the ability to carry on their (actually our) campuses.

    A special thanks to the good and diligent work of Attorney Jim Manley at Mountain States Legal Foundation. Jim serves as Colorado State Director for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, and is the lead attorney on the CU case (which is facing a deadline this week on that case). Jim also wrote the Amicus Brief Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) filed on the McDonald case.

    Mountain States Legal Foundation is working with RMGO and NAGR on some other issues, which we'll alert you about later.

    But, the ball is rolling, and right now, we're on the winning side.

    Once again, a special thanks to those who have supported our work.
    So the score is now;
    1 college that got smacked for imposing a ban.
    1 college that got smacked in court for having their ban.
    XX community colleges that have voluntarily rescinded their ban.

    Still working on UNC in Greeley, but great to hear that the community colleges are falling in line. Thanks for the update!

    To all Colorado residents, continue to write those emails and keep the pressure up on the institutions of higher education in our fine state. The time seems right to press the issue, and finally force them to adhere to Colorado state law regarding lawfully carried concealed weapons.
    What the **** - How did I end up on this soapbox again?!?!?

    Does this mean CO will join Utah as states where a ccw is "specifically authorized" at all state schools?

    If we keep this up, we may actually loose a couple of Brady Points.

    Dang it, now we have to work twice as hard to beat the airless folks also to lose those dang brady points also, first it's some yanks, now it's you all too.

    I'm glad to hear this, it does seem that Most States are moving in the right direction.

    I wonder what this means for Auraria Campus. Metro and CCD are community colleges, but CU Denver is not. All the schools share classrooms and facilities, so its not defined which belong to which school.
