Lifting of campus gun ban creates fear among faculty at CU-Boulder
- In a town hall-style meeting with university officials Tuesday, University of Colorado faculty members voiced their opposition to a Colorado Supreme Court's ruling in March that overturned the school's campus gun ban.
- Among faculty's concerns were what might happen during intense and aggressive classroom debates if students have guns, as well as the fact that professors aren't privy to the knowledge of which students actually have permits.
- Chancellor Phil DiStefano told faculty members that officials would talk to student leaders and campus groups about the law and would also try to arrange a discussion between the faculty and state legislators following the November elections.
