FSU football fan with a permit? Bring gun, lock it in car

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Florida State University football fans going to the game this weekend can bring their guns – if they have a concealed weapons permit and they keep them locked in their cars.

The day after being sued over a policy that bans guns on campus, the university on Wednesday said permitted gun owners can keep guns locked in parked cars.

But that doesn’t go far enough for Florida Carry Inc., a gun rights group that sued the school seeking to allow any legal gun owner to keep guns locked in their cars, whether they have a permit or not.

The school said the strict no gun policy was modified two years ago after another university lost a lawsuit and an appeals court ruled gun owners can keep weapons locked in cars.
