Utah Supreme Court Says University Cannot Bar Guns

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Utah Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the University of Utah cannot bar guns from its campuses. In a 4-1 vote, the court said that the autonomy granted the University to provide an education to its students does not give it the right to go beyond the state rule of law in doing so.

The decision will be appealed. In the meantime the existing ban will remain in effect.

You can read an article in today’s Inside Higher Ed that explains the ruling and the position that each side has taken in this debate.
