Florida - -(Ammoland.com)- Within days of filing our lawsuit against Eastern Florida State College (EFSC), the college agreed to amended its anti-gun policies to come in to compliance with state firearms laws.
Since 1987 the Florida Legislature has preempted firearms law and issued statewide licenses to carry for self-defense. In December 2013 Florida Carry won a similar case against the University of North Florida (UNF).
In Florida Carry v. UNF the First District Court of Appeal ruled that “The legislature’s primacy in firearms regulation derives directly from the Florida Constitution… Indeed, the legislature has reserved for itself the whole field of firearms regulation in section 790.33(1)…”
No public college or university has any authority to prevent students and the public from having a functional firearm in places that are constitutionally protected or permitted under state law.
The college is now subject to a settlement agreement with Florida Carry and in compliance with state law that allows students, staff, and visitors to lawfully store firearms in their private vehicles while parked on campus.
