Colorado: Castle Rock apartment's controversial policy banning firearms is thrown out
NRAILA ^ | Aug 8, 2013 | KUSA-TV Staff

Posted on 08/08/2013 10:36:18 AM PDT by EXCH54FE

A controversial gun policy at an apartment complex for seniors has been thrown out after a 9Wants to Know report. The Douglas County Housing Partnership, a multi-jurisdictional housing authority, held an emergency board of directors meeting late Wednesday afternoon. Board members decided that the policy, which would have prohibited residents from having firearms in their homes, will not go into effect.

Guess the thieves will have to find easy pickings elsewhere. These senior citizens would have been sitting ducks...something that obviously didn’t cross the minds of the idiots running the place.

CU and CSU banned guns on campus and CSU got smart and changed polocy. CU later had to change their policy also.

Yeah, if they would have gotten their way I’ll bet there would have been multiple postings on Craig’s list for “free stuff”...

Reminds me of 1968 after the murder of Bobby Kennedy and the anti-gun hysteria that followed.

Some people were placing “THIS HOME IS NOT ARMED” signs in their windows. It didn’t last long.

Worth watching. No comment from management, but you get to see what real investagative reporters look like. Interesting conclusion.

I predicted this yesterday, but never imagined it would happen so soon.

“The Douglas County Housing partnership owns Oakwood Apartments in Castle Rock. It was purchased with federal funds and is supported by local, state, and federal tax dollars...

...The Ross Management Group, based in Wheat Ridge, implemented the policy change...The company’s owner, Debi Ross, and her husband have given $9,000, only to Democrats, since 2006.

Public housing gun bans have been challenged in a number of states. In several cases, outright gun bans have been more narrowly tailored to common areas, after a lawsuit was filed.”

something that obviously the idiots running the place considered unimportant to their primary agenda of banning guns. Self defense is a much more serious crime than robbery or assault (in the mind of a liberal)

Did you read the comments on that site? One said RM had a FB page but it had to be taken down after so many negative posts. Officials are wondering if RM has done this to other properties. I would like to know too.

I wonder why Gun Grabbers never post that they are disarmed?

Haters never stop hating. They hate the very idea we commoners have rights.

Since this is a government sponsored and paid for apartment complex, the Colorado firearm preemption law trumps their liberal policy.

Reminds me of 1968 after the murder of Bobby Kennedy and the anti-gun hysteria that followed.

I clearly remember a photo in a magazine screeching for gun control. It showed a close-up of a man in a business suit with the crosshairs of a scope on the base of his neck. The cut line screamed (bold caps) "WRITE YOUR SENATOR, WHILE YOU STILL HAVE ONE!". That's when I knew we were in for a tough battle.

I also remember an anti-gun telethon with Robert Lansing (12 O'clock High) telling one phone bank operator, "Tell 'em we don't want to take their guns, just register them." and I thought "How stupid do they think we are?". They're still at it.

I thought one of those new CO gun laws had a provision nobody noticed for a while there.

Guess not.

Is Castle Rock Apartments a government entity or is it private?

Or maybe it did cross those minds. Maybe it was the reason for the policy in the first place. The Sullivan Law in New York stems from such principles.
