    Thumbs down Colorado: University Votes to Ban Guns

    The Board of Governors at Colorado State University voted 7 to 0 to ban guns from its campuses in Fort Collins and Pueblo, a decision that pitted faculty members against students demanding to exercise their right to carry guns. Guns had been banned at the University of Colorado, but Colorado State had followed a state law that allows a person to carry a concealed weapon as long he or she has a permit. Neighboring Utah allows concealed weapons on state property, and a court has ruled that colleges are not excepted. A Colorado faculty group said the ban would make the campuses safer, but a student, Brady Allen, 25, told the board that fear of an accidental discharge from a concealed weapon was not a good reason to ban guns. “You might as well ban everything that has a potential risk — cars, alcohol and sports,” said Mr. Allen, a history student and a former Marine. Gun rights advocates say campus bans make students vulnerable to attacks. In 2007, a gunman at Virginia Tech killed 32 people and wounded 23 before killing himself. The university board’s vote instructs the presidents of both campuses to submit a weapons plan by February.
    The vote was 7-0 against it??? Why is it so difficult for these academics to apply some common sense and respect the constitution?? Is it ignorance or politics?

    Ignorant politics can blind a person. It's ludicrous what insanity a person will believe, with a little push.

    But, it seems no number of dead victims will change close-minded bureaucrats' thoughts on the matter. It's sad.

    Reality is simple and unequivocal: with little to no resistance, a murderer has almost no chance of being stopped before doing great damage.

    The only way to halt the carnage earlier is to have the ability to withstand ... earlier. The best and most-sure way of doing that is to have armed people right there. Hardening the target. You can either hire them and/or simply put the arm down and stop criminalizing upstanding citizens via simply allowing them to carry and defend themselves.

    Hardening the target will always be one of the surest ways to make it tougher for an attacker to achieve the goal.

    By comparison, sweetening and softening the target will always be one of the surest ways to make it easier for an attacker to achieve the goal.

    I'd like one bureaucrat to show one example of where advance disarmament of a victim helped the victim survive anything.
