Colorado State University's current gun regulations are exactly in line with the state laws, but according to the Denver Post, president's cabinet and the schools "public-safety experts" are attempting to implement a gun ban against the will of the student body. Apparently CSU's Faculty Council prompted the measure in response to the VA Tech shootings. While I don't doubt this is their reasoning, it is illogical. Part of the reason the VA Tech shooting was so devastating was the lack of armed defense between the initial attack, and the arrival of police and SWAT teams. VA Tech had a gun ban. It failed there just as it failed at Luby's Cafeteria; at Columbine; and most recently, at Fort Hood. What is so different about CSU that a failed policy will suddenly begin to work?
