In a vote Tuesday, the CSU Board of Governors voted unanimously to ban concealed weapons system-wide.
The vote, 8-0, will essentially take licensed, thoroughly tested gun-owning individuals and make them into policy violators.
Not law violators, but policy violators.
These law-abiding citizens, who happen to be a part of the CSU community, have been silenced from carrying guns as a legal right afforded them by the state. Pardon the pun.
And, despite anecdotal evidence, studies and the loudly voiced pro-concealed carry argument from a significant portion of students on campus, the BOG has decided to ignore its constituency.
The members decided to stick their metaphorical fingers in their ears, yelling â€œLa la la la laâ€ at any argument contrary to its own.
Itâ€™s a smart move on their part. Theyâ€™re playing the political correctness card. Guns equal bad, and theyâ€™re jumping on the bandwagon of many institutions across the nation thatâ€™ve also banned guns on campus.
What sheep. The governing board of an institute of higher education, a place to pool ideas and challenge the status quo, following suit.
Letâ€™s create a hypothetical here, shall we? What if, say, the entire student population decided it didnâ€™t want to be pushed around.
What if said student body just stopped paying a portion of its tuition to show the university they meant business. Weâ€™ll call it a Representation Tax.
But thatâ€™s just a few bites to chew on. Nothing to really take seriously, yet.
Just beware of those faceless, invisible suits cowardly hiding behind their BOG desk with their heads up their â€¦ well, you know.
