Court favors of guns on public university campuses

Dec 18, 2013 by

A Florida court ruled on Tuesday that the state may not prevent students from storing firearms in their vehicles on campuses.

The 1st District Court of Appeals sided with University of North Florida (UNF) student Alexandria Lainez and Florida Carry Inc., ruling that the state of Florida already has a law on the books which allows students to store fire arms in their cars on campus, Gainesville reports.

“Restricting recreational activities is a far cry from restricting a fundamental, constitutional right to keep and bear arms for self-defense,” wrote Judge Clay Roberts.

The decision was supported by a majority of the fifteen judges on the bench, and applies to all twelve of Florida’s public universities.

UNF did not respond to a request for comment from Campus Reform in time for publication.
