Judge Against Guns On UI Campus

The University of Idaho did not violate a law student’s Second Amendment rights by not allowing him to keep firearms in his on-campus apartment, Latah County 2nd District Judge John R. Stegner has ruled. Aaron Tribble, a second-year law student, filed a lawsuit against the UI in January, stating his inability to keep firearms at  the South Hill Vista apartments for married students and students with children exceeded the powers of the university and violated his right to bear arms and 14th Amendment right to due process/Brandon Macz, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: What do you think of this ruling in light of the double killing today at Virginia Tech?

UI Student Sues To Store Firearms

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)?

UI Students Sues Over Gun Rights

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. More here. (AP file photo, for illustrative purposes)

Question: Would you want your child going to the University of Idaho, if students are allowed to keep arms in their campus rooms?
