Florida Court Rules Colleges Cannot Ban Guns – Huge 2nd Amendment Win

alexandrialainez1211BizPac: The Florida Appeals Court ruled in favor of Alexandria Lainez, the young woman pictured, a single mom who sued the University of North Florida (UNF) over the right to carry a gun in her vehicle while attending classes at UNF so she would be able to defend herself and her child while traveling to and from campus.

“I think it’s pretty important to be able to protect myself and my son, especially with that long commute to and from school.”

Lainez, 24, has had a concealed weapons permit for three years, has taken gun safety courses and is a proud member of Florida Carry, a state chapter of a number of organizations defending 2nd amendment rights.

she sued when the UNF ruled that she was not allowed to have a fire arm on UNF property which includes their parking lots, and they won.

Then the Florida appeals court ruled that UNF was violating state law and that “No college or university has the authority” to make such a regulation. This decision is huge, and will affect 2nd Amendment rights statewide and perhaps affect decisions nationally

In Florida, a state law in 1987 prohibited local governments from passing local gun control ordinances stricter than those passed by the legislature, but there were no penalties for non-compliance, a number of local governments didn’t comply and passed there own laws and regulations.

In 2011, the Legislature passed another law that provided for hefty fines and removal from office for elected officials and allowing for personal damages up to $100,000 for violations.

After that most local governments complied, but a few politically correct bastions like UNF remained scofflaws.

It remains to be seen whether UNF decides to appeal. According to UNF Associate Director for Public Relations Joanna Norris, in spite of the ruling, until the university decides whether to pursue this, UNF’s anti-gun regulations will remain in effect and they will continue to break the law…

“In other words, despite the express, well-reasoned opinion of the court, the university intends to continue violating students’ rights until they are forced to comply.”

Why Good People Should Be Armed

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
