Fairfax, Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- On Wednesday, January 20, Colorado State University (CSU) formally announced their draft proposal to prohibit firearms on all CSU campuses.

Exempt from the ban would be weapons used by law enforcement, military and the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC).

This draft policy will be brought up for consideration at the CSU Board of Governors meeting on Tuesday, February 23. A copy of the draft can be found at www.safety.colostate.edu/files/weapons_policy_draft_01_15_10.pdf.

Last year, the CSU Board of Governors drafted the policy knowing that it would violate the Colorado state firearm preemption law and the Colorado Uniform Shall-Issue Concealed Carry Law. Current state law strictly regulates the carry or transport of firearms on schools, colleges and universities.

It is important that the people of Colorado voice their concerns to the CSU President that the policy must uphold the Colorado law and allow permit holders to carry concealed for self-defense.

Please contact President Tony Frank TODAY by phone at 970-491-6211 or email [email protected] and respectfully urge him to comply with Colorado law.

Regarding the CSU matter, when was the harm done or the offense committed that led to the proposed restriction? Isn't it quite likely that there was no such impelling occurrence? If there was not, isn't it quite likely that some administrator or politician simply decided in anti-firearms style that "there are too many guns on the [fill in blank] already?

When those queries are answered, would it not be possible for a court to determine that the regulation, if it is imposed, constitutes arbitrary and capricious rule making and must be withdrawn?

Let's not scratch our heads. Just say "Yes."
