State Supreme Court considers campus gun bans

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Supreme Court is hearing arguments on whether campus gun bans are legal. The Colorado Court of Appeals in April ruled in favor of a gun-rights group that sued the University of Colorado, arguing that a 1994 university policy banning concealed weapons violates state gun laws.

The court agreed to examine two issues surrounding CU's ban on Wednesday. First is whether the Board of Regents has the authority to enact such a ban, and second, what test the court should apply in analyzing whether such a ban is constitutional. CU left its concealed weapons ban in place. In June, the
school's Board of Regents decided to fight the appellate court's decision. The school has banned guns since the 1970s.
