The University of Colorado will fight to keep a gun ban on campus.

University regents voted 5-4 Friday to appeal a ruling against the ban to the Colorado Supreme Court.

Republican Tillie Bishop of Grand Junction voted with Democrats in favor of an appeal. He said he wanted to preserve the rights of regents to make rules for the university.

All other Republicans on the board voted in favor of accepting a state appeals court ruling against the ban and allow students with concealed weapons permits to carry firearms.

CU's student government reversed its previous stance and voted to endorse the gun ban Thursday night following criticism from students.

CU has until the end of the month to to file an appeal.
