In April, a Colorado Court of Appeals panel decided that Colorado’s concealed carry licensing statute preempts public university bans on firearms possession and carrying. I just saw that last week the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to review the case. Here’s the Summary of Issues, as set forth by the court:
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.
Petition for Writ of Certiorari GRANTED.
