Palm Bay, Florida - -(Ammoland.com)- On Monday Florida Carry, Inc. filed a lawsuit against Eastern Florida State College seeking to protect the rights of students, faculty, and the public from the college’s illegal regulations prohibiting defensive firearms and weapons stored in private vehicles.

Today Eastern Florida State published a revised policy that brings them in to compliance with state defensive firearms and weapons laws.

We are pleased by the college’s response to the case thus far and greatly appreciate their willingness to work with Florida Carry to craft lawful firearms and weapons policies. We hope to reach a final settlement of the case soon.

In December 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.

Florida law provides for strict penalties against public entities and individuals who violate the rights of gun and defensive weapon owners. Any public entity which attempts to restrict the statutory and fundamental right to keep and bear arms in Florida is subject to enforcement actions by organizations such as Florida Carry.

About: Florida Carry, Inc. is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to advancing the fundamental civil right of all Floridians to keep and bear arms for self defense as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution. Florida Carry, Inc. was organized by a group of Florida self-defense rights activists in order to better coordinate activities, effectively lobby the state legislature, and provide a legal entity capable of filing suit to demand compliance with state and federal law. Florida Carry stands to represent its members and millions of Florida gun owners. We are not beholden to any national organization’s agenda that may compromise our mission. Florida Carry works tirelessly toward repealing and striking down ill-conceived gun control laws and regulations that have been proven to provide safe havens to criminals and be deadly to law abiding citizens.

    1. A lawsuit can, indeed, bring issues into pefect clarity…for those who want to make “their own” laws.
