DENVER – Colorado Supreme Court justices will decide if concealed carry permit holders should be allowed to bring guns to the University of Colorado’s campuses after attorneys Wednesday debated whether regents can legally ban guns.
The appeals court judges ruled that the Concealed Carry Act of 2003 — a state law that prohibits local municipalities from adopting ordinances that would limit concealed-carry rights — did apply to universities.
But CU attorney Patrick O’Rourke argued before the justices this morning that the act applies to cities and counties — not CU’s campuses.
