MU Prof Sues for Right to Carry on Campus

(AP) – A University of Missouri associate law professor has filed a lawsuit contending that the school’s ban on concealed weapons on campus violates his constitutional rights.

The lawsuit filed Saturday by Royce de R. Barondes against the Board of Curators and President Tim Wolfe also argues the ban conflicts with a state law that allows guns to be stored in the passenger compartment of a vehicle by an adult with a permit.

His attorney, Jennifer Bukowsky, also argues the ban violate Barondes’ right to keep and carry weapons on campus for self-defense. Barondes is licensed to carry a concealed firearm.

The lawsuit also cites an amendment approved last year by Missouri voters that said state residents have an unalienable right to bear arms and any gun regulations must be subject to “strict scrutiny.”
