Appeals Court hears arguments on CU gun ban

The Colorado Court of Appeals will hear arguments in a lawsuit by a gun rights organization challenging the University of Colorado's ban on guns on campus.

The Students for Concealed Carry on Campus will appear Tuesday to argue that a 1994 CU policy banning concealed weapons from its campus violates state gun laws.

El Paso County District Judge G. David Miller threw the case out of court in May 2009. A decision from the Court of Appeals is expected within six weeks.

Miller said in his ruling he found nothing in the state constitution that would prohibit a campus gun ban. Many college campuses nationwide ban concealed weapons, but gun-rights advocates say gun-free campuses make students vulnerable to attack.
