U. of Colorado Bans Nerf Guns

December 7, 2009

The University of Colorado's ban on weapons extends to simulated weapons. As a result, The Daily Camera reported, students at the Boulder campus who want to play Humans vs. Zombies, a popular student game that typically involves Nerf guns, must do so with balled up socks instead of the Nerf guns. "The university doesn't want to come across as a giant institutional killjoy," a spokesman said. "But if a student has a Nerf gun in their pocket pants or coat, and only the handle is showing, a cop or a passerby wouldn't know what it is."
