Colorado university gun storage questions

At Colorado’s three largest institutions of higher learning, there are large caches of student-owned weaponry that would be the envy of many police departments.

Doesn’t look to me like too secure of a lockup.  It looks more like a closet.  Who knows though, maybe that closet is inside a vault type room with armed guards.

Students with proper identification, a clear background check and a claim tag can take them out any time.

Most of the shotguns and rifles are used for hunting getaways on weekends or on holiday breaks, say officials.

Are the students asked about what they are doing with the guns? Or are they divulging that information voluntarily?  It would be pain if you got interrogated every time you wanted to get your gun(s) out to go target shooting or hunting.

Before they are deposited into the locker, the weapons are unloaded by the students, and the ammunition is stored for them as well.

Are the guns expected to be unloaded before you arrive at the university lockup facility? or can you unload them there?  Also, can you carry concealed into the university if you are on your way to the lockup facility?

Is there a limit on the number of guns and the amount of ammo you can store?

What about the type of guns? Could I store NFA items there?

I like the concept behind the idea, although I can see them trying to make you feel like a criminal every time you wanted to get your guns, and questioning your choice of guns.  Hopefully that doesn’t happen though!

Anyone go to a Colorado university that wishes to comment?

Do you also get to keep the stuff the getaway left in his dorm room?

LOL good one. Getaway season is quickly approaching. Did you apply for your getaway tags yet this year? I hope I get drawn! :P

Per NFA regulations, storing any NFA items there would not be legal, unless locked inside a case that the police didn’t have access to.
The person that the NFA item is registered to is the only person that can legally have access to the item.

Excellent point! Is that restriction for sure even against law enforcement?
