The CSU System Board of Governors voted unanimously Wednesday to revoke its ban on concealed weapons on campus.

The vote followed a Colorado appeals court ruling on April 15 found that a similar ban at CU-Boulder violated state law.

CU Students for Concealed Carry argued that the ban implemented by the CU Board of Regents violated the Colorado Concealed Carry Act and other statutes of state law that require certian security measures in areas where guns are not allowed.

Following the court decision last month, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners filed a similar complaint against CSU, after which the CSU BOG decided to review its ban.

According to a university press release, the BOG ordered CSU President Tony Frank and CSU-Pueblo President Joe Garcia to work directly with legal counsel to reconstruct the policy so that it would comply with state law.

“Since the weapons control policies were not implemented on the campuses, the campuses will operate as status quo until such time as the revised policies are developed,” the release said.
