Florida Supreme Court Will Not Hear Opposition To UF Gun Ban

posted on April 15, 2016

The state Supreme Court has decided not to hear an appeal on whether guns should be allowed in University of Florida housing. A gun-rights group had urged the court to overturn a 1st District Court of Appeal ruling upholding a firearms ban on school grounds. The lawsuit was filed against the university in 2014, stating that citizens have a constitutional right to keep guns in their homes, which should include university housing.

Florida Carry brought lawsuit to UF after winning a similar gun-rights case against the University of North Florida, where the Court of Appeal ruled students could store guns in their car while on campus grounds. However, in the University of Florida case the court pointed to a state law barring guns on school property, while weighing against another law affirming the right to possess guns at home. The court did not give a reason for declining the case.
