CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4)– The owner of a gun shop in Centennial believes students should be educated about using firearms. He’s offering to get them lessons after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled colleges cannot ban concealed weapons.
Dick Abramson owns “The Gun Store” in Centennial. He is planning to offer a class called “Prepare U” which will include self defense and firearms.
Not everyone agrees the class is a good idea.
“We’ve had a good deal of interest in it, we’ve had several campuses that have contacted us about Prepare U and how they might implement it in their student base,” said Abramson.
“I don’t think some people, especially college kids, should have the responsibility of a firearm,” said one University of Colorado student.
Abramson said the court’s ruling is the reality,”With the Supreme Court ruling there is going to be a need to deal with it and I think if they do it in a positive fashion it will be a positive thing on campus.”
CU Regents are against the ruling. The university said they’re in discussions on how to move forward and approach the change in a safe manner.
