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.

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