    49% favor the current law allowing students to carry concealed weapons on College campuses???

    Hello Aurora

    Columbine

    I'm glad the citizens of Colorado have the good sense to rate Obama over Romney, and I am loving that 49% support legalizing Same Sex Marriage, BUT this gun poll result is troubling. I'm guessing they feel the need to "carry" to protect themselves against the possible crazies, but won't this just lead to more dead people when there are nut job shoot outs that produce mass casualties when everyone just starts shooting each other to protect themselves, thinking everyone else is the Bad Guy?

    Our Gun Laws must be dealt with and Soon.

    Sorry about going off topic with Obama Poll, but these numbers are in the poll.

      drunk college students on a Saturday night and getting rowdy and some getting into fights. I hope to hell some of them do not resolve fights with a gun or that they do not get all drunk and start shooting guns off into the air as innocent bystanders can be at risk.

      Gun in one hand and marijuana joint in the other.  Kinda gotta roll with it here.

      we know that Aurora and Columbine both occurred in gun free zones. We also don't worry about registered conceal carry people having guns. CC permit holders are statistically the most law abiding citizens, even less prone to gun crime than the police.

      This scenario with multiple people pulling out six shooters and mass casualties getting caught in the crossfire is just a product of over eager imaginations.

      The shooting you don't hear of is the one where the gunman was shot and stopped by a volunteer. Google Colorado church shooting.

      University students are adults. We trust the tiny percentage of University students who do have a CC permit to act responsibly, as a deterrent, and even, god forbid, as a way of ending a mass shooting before it takes the lives of many students.
