The first day class in 2014 is the deadline for Florida public colleges and universities to comply with state firearms and weapons laws

Any Florida public college or university that fails to notify all students and the public that prohibitive policies regarding the storage of firearms, or other defensive arms, in the personal vehicles of its students and visitors are void and unenforceable by the first day of  Spring semester classes will be subject to being sued by Florida Carry for violations of 790.33 Florida Statutes and/or Article I, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution.  Colleges and universities who do not work in good faith to expeditiously revise or repeal such unlawful policies will also leave Florida Carry no choice but to demand compliance in the courts.

Recently the 1st District Court of Appeal reaffirmed, in Florida Carry, Inc. v. Univ. of N. Fla (Fla. 1st DCA 2013), that adult students have a right to keep and bear arms in their vehicles under our constitution and Florida law.  This case set binding precedent statewide that Florida Carry will seek to enforce for the protection of law abiding Floridians.

Students and members of the public are encouraged to notify Florida Carry of violations of Florida’s Firearms Preemption Law by emailing details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
