TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State University football fans going to the game this weekend can bring their guns -- if they have a concealed weapons permit and they keep them locked in their cars.

The day after being sued over a policy that bans guns on campus, the university on Wednesday said permitted gun owners can keep guns locked in parked cars.

But that doesn't go far enough for Florida Carry Inc., a gun rights group that sued the school seeking to allow any legal gun owner to keep guns locked in their cars, whether they have a permit or not.

The school said the strict no gun policy was modified two years ago after another university lost a lawsuit and an appeals court ruled gun owners can keep weapons locked in cars.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A gun rights group is suing Florida State University over a policy banning people from keeping guns locked in their cars during football games and while on campus.

Florida Carry Inc. said Tuesday that the policy violates state law. They are suing on behalf of a student Rebekah Hargrove, who wants to keep her gun in her car during this Saturday's football game against University of South Florida.

She also wants to be able to keep her gun in her car while on campus taking classes.

Florida Carry executive director Sean Caranna said Florida law allows concealed weapons permit holder to keep their guns locked in their cars while on state university campuses.

The group is seeking an injunction to allow fans to keep their guns in their cars during Saturday's game.
