I live in the same town CSU is located.
Our local sheriff made CCW permits something for the ordinary law abiding citizen post 9-11.CSU has had responsible citizens carrying on campus for quite a while.I am sure if there was a problem with the alleged irresponsible students,it would have been in the local headlines.
I have lived here since 1966,I have not heard of a problem.
That is the reality.The rest is about fears and agendas..
Other realities are cases like Virginia Tech,Columbine,and Fort Hood.A CCW may have saved innocent lives,or the case of the New Life Church in Colorado Sprngs,where indeed,many lives were saved by a CCW,with the courage of the woman who put the shooter down.
I thank and applaud those who are fighting in court to preserve the CCW at CSU,
