First, Colorado State University voted to ban concealed firearms on campus.
Then the University of Colorado went a few steps further and cracked down on another nefarious threat: Nerf guns.
Plans for a student-led game of humans vs. zombies took a hit after campus security officials discovered that players intended to use the popular orange-and-green toy weaponry. Simulated guns, even those that shoot spongy Nerf balls, are banned at the University of Colorado.
CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard said students cooperated fully, replacing the Nerf guns with balled-up socks and even taking it upon themselves to hang fliers in dormitories warning players to leave their Nerfs at home. The game started Dec. 1 and ended a couple of days later.
Still, it didn't take long for cries of "liberal killjoys" to ring out across the Internet. The contrast was especially stark given the headlines that week at Colorado State University, thought to be the last college outside Utah that allowed students to carry concealed weapons on campus with a permit.
The CSU Board of Governors voted unanimously Dec. 4 to ban concealed weapons over the objections of students. Presidents of the Colorado State system have until February to submit a weapons plan that complies with the new policy.
At CU, the ban on Nerf guns isn't new. University officials pointed out that the Board of Regents banned simulated weapons from campus years ago, rather than just in time to suck the fun out of last week's game.

Does this count?
“even taking it upon themselves to hang fliers in dormitories”
I hate people like that. I like to rip down their crappy fliers & accidentally spill stuff on their faggy magazines.
And it’s up against the wall ya red neck mother.
A balled-up sock, especially a dirty one, is a a far more deadly weapon than a nerf gun.
And should that fail, I like to keep this handy for close encounters...
They only kill nerf people and they put holes in their nerf skin and cause all the nerf blood and nerf guts to fall out onto the ground. It really is a horrible sight to see.
