Students for Concealed Carry and Ohioans for Concealed Carry have filed suit against OSU, which prohibits students from storing guns in locked cars or carrying them at off-campus university events — violating Ohio State law, if not the Second Amendment.

Ohio State Can’t Ban Guns In Locked Cars On Campus, Suit Argues

Ohio State University is not only out of step with other public universities in the state regarding its policies on gun possession – it also violates state law, according to a lawsuit filed against OSU last week.

The university can’t prohibit storing guns in a locked car on campus or carrying at off-campus university events, Students for Concealed Carry and Ohioans for Concealed Carry said in the suit.

Four university policies forbid the lawful possession of a firearm, the suit said: the student code of conduct, human resources policy, the recreation department’s standards of conduct and the handbook for residence halls.

Only the Legislature has the authority to regulate gun use, Zach Zalneraitis, public relations director for Students for Concealed Carry, told The College Fix. Ohio law bans concealed handguns in places “owned or leased” by colleges “unless the handgun is in a locked motor vehicle or the licensee is in the immediate process of placing the handgun in a locked motor vehicle.”
