Colorado Supreme Court to review lower court decisions preventing Colorado public universities from banning concealed carry permit holders

Students for Concealed Carry on Campus has posted this:

On Monday, the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to grant a writ of certiorari to CU in their appeal.
At issue, states the court, is:
Whether the General Assembly intended the Concealed Carry Act to divest the Board of Regents of its constitutional and statutory authority to enact safety and welfare measures for the University of Colorado’s campuses.
Whether a constitutional challenge to a statute or ordinance regulating the right to bear arms is governed by the deferential “rational basis” standard of review or a more stringent “reasonable exercise” standard of review.

There is a great deal more at stake than the relatively narrow issue of whether responsible adults can be denied the exercise of their rights (licensed concealed-carry pursuant to state law) - as if that wasn’t important enough. In hearing the case, the Colorado Supreme Court will also rule on whether state law, as a matter of principle and precedent, can be ignored by certain quasi-governmental entities (such as the CU Board of Regents). Most importantly, the Colorado Supreme Court will rule on the standard of review for laws regulating the right to bear arms (or any constitutional rights) in Colorado.

Fortunately, Colorado voters have the opportunity to act to save their rights: 3 anti-constitutional Colorado Supreme Court justices (Michael Bender, Alex Martinez, and Nancy Rice) need voter approval to stay in office past November 2nd.

Vote NO on these unjust justices - save your gun rights (along with other constitutional rights) - and Clear The Bench, Colorado!
