Colorado State University considers banning concealed handguns on campus

I don't know how many times that I can write about this. No problems as expected, but faculty want concealed handguns banned. The question is who will be deterred by the possibility of being expelled from school for violating this rule. From the Coloradoan:

At the prompting of the university's faculty council, President Tony Frank is considering whether to enact a near-ban on concealed carrying in classrooms and other common areas. . . .

CSU has seen no problems with weapons on campus, concealed or otherwise, Bohlander said. He said Frank will make a decision after hearing student opinions. Bohlander said the university has no way to track how many people carry concealed weapons on campus on any given day.

I get it, nothing has happened for a while, they are getting bored, so they need something to occupy them for a while. So they decide to clamp down on something that has not ever been a problem.

Make sense to me.

There's a disturbing part of me that halfway wants to see a shooter come on campus after such a ban were to be put in place. Post Hoc falacy, certainly, but it'd be nice fodder for the argument: "but this never happened when we allowed concealed weapons on campus!"

Mind, the larger part of me hopes nothing like that Ever happens again.
