The 1st District Court of Appeals has ruled that Florida’s state universities cannot ban students from keeping firearms in the trunks of their cars. From NBC Miami:
In a lengthy decision that prompted a strong dissent as well as multiple concurring opinions, the appeals court ruled that the Florida Legislature has pre-empted the regulation of guns by local governments and state agencies.
The court decided the state’s 12 public universities are covered by this 2011 law. The ruling notes that while universities have the power to restrict lawful conduct â€” like drinking or smoking on campus â€” that power does not extend to regulating guns.
Well, I’m sure there’s no drinking or smoking pot on any university campuses.
