BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado regents have voted to postpone a measure that sought their support for the right to carry concealed weapons on campus.
The Daily Camera reports regents voted 6-2 Wednesday to postpone the measure from Republican regents Sue Sharkey and Jim Geddes, who wanted regents to take a stance on whether concealed-carry permit holders could bring weapons on campus.
Permit holders already can do so following a Colorado Supreme Court ruling last year that said CU couldn't ban them from bringing guns to school because the ban wasn't approved by the Legislature. CU still bars guns from campus dorms and ticketed events, such as basketball games.
Some state legislators are now trying to pass a bill that would allow public college campuses to ban guns.
