FSU’s New Parking Lot Carry Policy A Turnover, But No Touchdown

posted on September 11, 2015

Just one day after a lawsuit was filed against Florida State University regarding its firearms policies, the school has decided to revise its stance.

The school announced Wednesday that a section in their 2015 Game Day Guide stating fans “may not store firearms … in their vehicles parked on campus while attending the game” had been removed. The guide now states concealed-carry permit holders can keep firearms in their cars if they are “securely encased in the vehicle.”

Florida Carry, however, said the new policies are “wholly insufficient,” and that they plan to continue with the lawsuit. Currently, only concealed-carry permit holders are allowed parking lot carry rights—but Florida Carry believes any law-abiding gun owner should be able to keep a firearm in his/her locked vehicle in accordance with Florida law. The group also believes parking lot carry should apply not just to football fans, but also visitors and students attending class.
