University Of Colorado Provides Safe Zones For Thugs And Rapists

No Lawyers – Only Guns and Money tells us of the above policy having been implemented by the UofC, obviously in an effort to stop the violence perpetrated against students.

Because those legally-armed, vetted students are (in)famous for inciting violence on campus against the sheep other unarmed students.

Yeah, right.

From the Denver Post:

The University of Colorado Boulder and University of Colorado Colorado Springs are amending their student housing contracts, segregating students who possess a valid concealed-carry permit.

The university said Thursday morning that both campuses will establish a residential area for residents over age 21 with a permit. In other residential areas, students will not be permitted to carry a concealed weapon, the new policy states.

The new housing policy does two things. First, it seeks to use contract law to negate the ruling of the Colorado Supreme Court which stated that the University of Colorado did not have the power to ban concealed carry on campus. Second, and more insidiously, it points out to thugs, rapists, and other criminals areas on campus where they will be relatively safe. That is, by creating obvious gun-free zones, the University System has put a big red target on the back of all those students living in traditional undergraduate student housing.

Go and read the whole thing.  And, when your stomach returns to normal ruminate as to whether Colorado concealed-carry permit records are public records.  (I don’t live in Colorado – I’ve no idea).

If I were a student with a valid permit, and the records were confidential (as they are in Arizona) I think I’d just play it close to the vest (or under the vest) and keep my damn mouth shut.

But, that’s just me.

  1. We joke in Colorado about the “People’s Republic of Boulder”. The CU Regents have a long history of acting as a law unto themselves. This will probably end up in court.
