DENVER -- Colorado State University will ban guns and join most college campuses nationwide in forbidding concealed weapons on campus.
Colorado State's Board of Governors voted 7-0 Friday to outlaw firearms on its campuses in Fort Collins and Pueblo. Currently, the two schools are among a handful in the nation where concealed weapons are lawful with a permit.
The ban won't take effect until the presidents of the two campuses write individual bans. Guns are already off-limits at the University of Colorado and at virtually all campuses nationwide.
Officials say the Colorado State gun ban will leave Utah campuses as the only ones where concealed weapons are allowed. That state forbids campus gun bans.
Colorado State board members acted Friday after a faculty group at the Fort Collins campus asked for a ban. The student government overwhelmingly opposed a ban.
