    Campus gun ban at CU Boulder ignores reality

    Campus gun ban at CU Boulder ignores reality
    By Brian T. Schwartz

    Imagine this news headline: "School shooter apologizes — not for killing — but for violating CU campus gun ban."

    Preposterous, right? Not to some members of the University of Colorado Boulder faculty.

    A recent motion from the Boulder Faculty Assembly (BFA) supports a campus gun ban — as if someone intent on killing would comply with a campus gun ban, let alone regret breaking one.

    I think it was this University that I read a while ago that the Local County Jail would refuse any University Cop from trying to book Firearm Carriers into the Jail.

    I read in the newspaper recently about a candlelight vigil for a female murder victim. UVa, I think.

    It occurred to me that some colleges will go to a lot of trouble to show their concern for someone after they are dead. But, are not sufficiently concerned to not interfer with their right to carry for self-defense.

    I wonder if colleges and universities have policies that can be found to show they expect crime and student victims.

    The smoking gun, if you will, would be the policies and procedures for campus security for a serious crime. What about the psych department? Are they organized for grief counseling after a crime? Does their list of services provide for such?

    I'm thinking that digging up policies that show serious crime is anticipated would go a long way towards discrediting the school administrations GFSZ policies. Especially if juxtaposed as concern for victims, but little concern before they are victims. Work it right and you could almost prove they want to create victims. Victims are easier to deal with. Everybody can sympathize with a victim; it takes no effort.

    The Appeal has been won.

    Colleges can not Prohibit Concealed Carry in Colorado Universities by Permit Holders.

    Excellent point - one which I think should be pursued.

    The article's title should be "Boulder Ignores Reality"... anyone who's ever been there will agree with me!
