After a March court decision overturned a systemwide ban on guns, the University of Colorado on Wednesday decided to allow concealed-carry permit holders to bring them almost everywhere on its Boulder campus.

CU Boulder retained its prohibition on guns in dorms, and firearms are banned entirely from ticketed events, including sports games and concerts. Regent Jim Geddes found these remaining restrictions to be a failure of the university’s obligation to protect its students.

“At the end of the day, you still have created some gun-free zones on campus,” Geddes said. “Creating a gun-free zone without taking some other measures to protect our students within those zones has shown over and over again to be a failed policy.”

The regents approved the new policy on a 7-0 vote, with board chairman Michael Carrigan, D-Denver, abstaining. Regent Joe Neguse, D-Boulder, was absent from the meeting.
