The right to bear arms has become the fodder for a lawsuit on the University of Idaho campus, where a law student is suing the university for the right to store firearms in his on-campus apartment. Right now the university requires students living on campus to store their weapons in an on-campus lock-up at a police substation that can only be accessed by local police.Second-year law student Aaron Tribble keeps a pistol and shotgun in the lock-up, but he isn’t a fan of the regulations. Keeping his wife and two kids safe is why Tribble is taking on the university for the right to store his guns at home/Tania Dall, KXLY. More here.
Question: Should there be some restrictions of guns (i.e., a limit on the amount of rounds that a gun can fire)?
The University of Idaho is being sued by one of its law students who claims he should have the right to keep firearms in his on-campus apartment. Aaron Tribble, a second-year law student at the UI, is representing himself in the suit, which he filed last Tuesday in Latah County Second District Court. Tribble, 36, and his family live in one of the university’s South Hill Vista apartments for married students and students with children. He claims the UI’s policy banning firearms from campus — and by extension, his current place of residence — is a violation of his Second Amendment right to bear arms and his 14th Amendment right to due process/Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

Question: Would you want your child going to the University of Idaho, if students are allowed to keep arms in their campus rooms?
In Scanner Traffic at 5:35 this afternoon, an employee of Pilgrim’s Market on 4th Street in Midtown reports that he confronted a prospective customer who entered the natural foods store, wearing a gun in his waist band. The male said he had a right to bear such a firearm in such a matter under the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. But the guy didn’t want to push that right, leaving the premises in a green pickup.
Question: Do you think an individual has a right to wear and display his firearm as he did at Pilgrim’s Market?
