(Separate But Equal) Colorado U to Segregate Dorms for Students with Concealed-Carry Gun Permits

University of Colorado to segregate dorms for students with concealed-carry gun permits

Two University of Colorado campuses will soon feature dorms that allow students over 21 with gun permits to live. Currently, firearms are banned in all on-campus housing facilities.

The University of Colorado said it is going to begin segregating students with valid gun permits when assigning on-campus housing.

Two CU campuses - the main campus in Boulder and another in Colorado Springs - will establish a designated residential area for students over the age of 21 with gun permits, school officials told the Denver Post.

In any other housing facility, guns will be banned.

"The main dorms on the main campus will not allow any concealed-carry weapons," CU-Boulder spokesman Bronson Hilliard said.

School officials said they began considering the policy in March, shortly after Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled that CU can’t ban permit holders from bringing guns to campus.

The new dorm ban, announced Thursday, will be met with legal challenges.

"We're going to look into it further, but it's not surprising that the campuses are trying to circumvent the Colorado Supreme Court ruling," Kurt Mueller, an official with the pro-gun group Students for Concealed Carry, told the Post.

Less than 1% of CU’s student-body population is believed to have concealed-carry permits.

One such permit holder, a graduate student at CU-Denver, catapulted into notoriety last month after allegedly carrying out a midnight massacre at a crowded suburban Denver theater. There has been no indication that accused Aurora shooter James Holmes brought guns to campus.

Well, if any deranged freak wants to open a can of mass murder whoop-ass at Colorado State, they’ll know which dorms to go to.

On the other hand ... I can predict which housing will have the absolute lowest rate of burglaries and robberies!

Hell, if I were still in college and too poor to afford a firearm, I’d get a CCW permit anyway just to live in these dorms.

That article just claimed that Holmes had a Colorado CCW. I have seen this nowhere else in the media, and am reasonably sure had it been the case every anti-gun politico and pundit would have been screaming it from the rooftops.

A google search turns up no confirmation of this claim.

I'm not sure I dislike this idea. Give students a choice whether they want to live free, or gun free. I know which dorm I’da been hanging around waaay back in my college days. Give me a dorm full of gun totin’ ladies to cozy up to vs. a dorm full of flea-bag hippie girls ANY day.

Most of the guys I knew who lived in college dorms in the 1950s & early 60s kept their hunting rifles in their dorm rooms. Anybody know when this prohibition began?

“(Separate But Equal) “

I have a dream that one day, up in Colorado, with its fear stricken liberals, with unarmed citizens shot down in a movie theater, It’s liberal politician’s lips dripping with the words of gun control; one day right there in Colorado, gun fearing students and students with CCW permits will be able to share living arrangements together instead of being segregated by fear.

I expected this in Boulder but not Colorado Springs. I guess there are idiots everywhere.

 My first thought as well. I think this is just another slander against CCW holders. Looking to see if anyone else has confirmation.

I think it is a violation of privacy of the CCW holders. The professors can look up which dowm you live at, and know you are one of those “right wing gun nuts”.

Poorly constructed sentence. What, did they not allow these students to "live" before? Lemme guess -- firing squad.
