Guns now allowed in parked cars on FGCU campus
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Just days after the Purdue University shooting in Indiana, Florida Gulf Coast University approves a change to its campus gun laws.
Faculty and students can now keep registered firearms inside parked cars on campus.
It's illegal in Florida to carry a gun onto college campuses, but in December a Florida appeals court ruled that law didn't apply to parked cars.
"It does make me a little uncomfortable about knowing someone has a concealed weapon in their car five feet from my classroom," freshman Alex Miranda said.
