CSU board to vote on concealed weapons ban

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – The Colorado State University System Board of Governors is expected to vote on whether to ban concealed weapons at its campuses.

The CSU campuses in Fort Collins and Pueblo are among a handful nationwide where concealed weapons are permitted.

The board is expected to take a vote Tuesday.

Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden and student groups at both campuses say they oppose the proposed bans. Faculty support the bans.

The ban would allow exemptions for educational purposes and to people who face a serious threat, if they have a concealed-carry permit.
