Board of Directors Intervenes, Says It 'Will Not Allow' Apartment Complex to Implement Controversial Policy Banning Guns

"This board does not support any action that infringes on an individual's rights and will not allow Ross Management to implement these changes."

About 24 hours after Denver's 9News reported on a local apartment complex's controversial policy banning firearms, the board of the Douglas County Housing partnership held an emergency meeting on Wednesday and decided the policy would not be implemented.

The Douglas County Housing partnership reportedly owns the Oakwood Apartments in Castle Rock, Colo. The complex was purchased with federal funds and is "supported by local, state and federal tax dollars," 9News reports.

The group released the following press release on Wednesday:

"These community policy changes were distributed without the knowledge or authorization of the Board of Directors of the Douglas County Housing Partnership or its staff. This board does not support any action that infringes on an individual's rights and will not allow Ross Management to implement these changes. The mission of the Douglas County Housing partnership is to preserve and develop safe, secure, quality housing while providing housing choices for those who have few."

As TheBlaze previously reported, residents, like retired U.S. Marine Art Dorsch, were outraged after learning about the policy.
