Rocky Mountain Gun Owners challenging Windsor library's gun ban, saying it violates state law


WINDSOR, Colorado — Gun-rights activists say they may sue a library system in Windsor because it bans weapons.

The Greeley Tribune reports ( ) that the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group is challenging the Clearview Library District's weapons policy.

The topic was discussed but not acted on by the board Thursday.

Library staff allegedly told a patron to leave on Aug. 20 because she was carrying a concealed weapon. The library's code of conduct asks patrons to refrain from "carrying weapons of any sort except by law enforcement officers."

The gun owners' rights group argues the policy violates state law.
