In a victory for gun-rights advocates, the Colorado Supreme Court today struck down the University of Colorado’s campus gun ban, saying the CU Board of Regents overstepped its authority in blocking students from carrying licensed concealed weapons.

“We’re very, very happy,” said James Manley of the Mountain State Legal Foundation, which argued against CU’s ban. “The position of the Supreme Court was that they (the CU regents) were operating above the law.”

Justices ruled that the state’s Concealed Carry Act’s “comprehensive statewide purpose, broad language, narrow exclusions show that the General Assembly intended to divest the Board of Regents of its authority to regulate concealed handgun possession on campus.”
