Pro-gun group takes FSU to court over firearm policy

Florida State University is facing a lawsuit from a local pro-gun group over its ban on firearms in vehicles. FSU President John Trasher, no stranger to lawsuits brought against him by Florida Carry, was named in the new legal challenge from the group filed last week in a Leon County court. The pro-gun member organization contends the public university’s policy on the storage of ammunition and some types of guns inside private on-campus vehicles doesn’t jibe with state law.

“The new issues deal with the university’s rules and regulations regarding the storage of long guns such as rifles and shotguns in a vehicle, and the prohibition of ammunition in a vehicle,” said Florida Carry attorney Eric Friday. “We hope that the court will require FSU and President Thrasher to comply with state law and quit lying to students in telling them what state law clearly allows them to do.”

The university’s 32-page Student Conduct Code contends it is in compliance with the state’s statute concerning guns on school property. However, Florida Carry argues there is nothing in on the books that allow for a prohibition of long arms or ammo in a private vehicle. Contending they have numerous members who attend the school, the group says those members fear arrest if they practice their protected right to have a rifle or shotgun in their vehicle.
