University Won't Challenge Florida Ruling on Guns
The University of North Florida has decided not to appeal a Florida appeals court ruling that said public universities could not ban guns from cars parked on campus, The Orlando Sentinel reported. The decision came in a suit challenging North Florida's rules against guns in parked cars on campus, but the decision also raised questions about the legal right of public colleges and universities in the state to regulate guns in many cases. The University of North Florida, in saying that it would not appeal the decision, said it would drop its rule on guns in cars on campus. Florida Carry, a gun-rights group, announced that it would sue any public university that does not make similar changes.
