It’ll be fun to see…

…how this turns out:

The University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are amending their student housing contracts, segregating students who possess a valid concealed-weapons carry permit.

The university said Thursday that both campuses will establish a residential area for students over the age of 21 with permits. In all other dormitories, guns will be banned, the new policy states.

Wow, either way, that’s going to make for an interesting little real-life experiment, isn’t it? Assuming everyone knows which dorms’ residents are armed to the teeth and the word gets out about it, it’ll be interesting to see how much the crime shifts to the other dorms, if at all. And even if no one knows which dorms’ residents are armed, it’ll be another data point either way. More guns, less crime? Yeah, I really do think that’s how it’ll turn out. Good on the Colorado Supreme Court for upholding students’ Second Amendment rights.

    I’m guessing Colorado doesn’t have a records law to protect the identities for everyone with a CHL, to prevent this sort of thing from happening (or as it happened in Texas, to keep companies like Dell, from demanding a list, and then firing any employees they found on it). I agree, it’ll be entertaining to sit back and watch how it turns out, after a few years of this social experiment, tho I doubt they’ll admit to any error on their part when it goes how we usually predict.

    So a University is engaged in segregation? Where will it stop? Catholics with Catholics? Protestants with Protestants? Homosexuals with Homosexuals? Omnivores with omnivores? Vegans with vegans? Blacks with..Oh never mind. Do as I pretend not as I do.

      That is one of my big problems with it too. Given the attitude on display, I’m betting the CHL-holders are going to be looked at first every time there’s a crime committed on campus. It’s only a matter of time before the first Fourth Amndment violation hits.
