FORT COLLINS – Members of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at Colorado State University will deliver a petition to CSU President Tony Frank on Friday, Feb. 19. The petition, which has more than 1,300 signatures, was organized on Facebook by CSU students, and will be delivered page by page to college officials to affirm support for the university’s current policy allowing licensed concealed carry on campus.
“Students have shown tremendous support for concealed carry at CSU in the student government, in the university’s newspaper, and through the petition drive,” said Tim Campbell, SCCC Campus Leader at CSU. “The Board of Governors should honor the will of the students.”
The petition is being delivered just four days prior to a CSU Board of Governors meeting, where it is expected they will approve a ban on licensed concealed carry—a change from the university’s currently policy, which has been in place for nearly seven years.
