University of Missouri Professor Sues Over Campus Gun Ban

A University of Missouri associate law professor has filed a lawsuit challenging the university’s ban on guns on campus.

The lawsuit filed Saturday by Royce de R. Barondes contends the ban violates a state law that allows guns on campus if they are stored in the passenger compartment of a vehicle. 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.

Barondes also cites a constitutional amendment passed last year that strengthened gun rights in Missouri.

The lawsuit names the University of Missouri Board of Curators and system President Tim Wolfe.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports university spokesman Christian Basi declined to comment because the lawsuit is pending.
