A college campus is being sued for its gun ban.

A college campus is being sued for its gun ban.

A University of Missouri business and corporate law educator who’s taught at the facility since 2002 has launched a lawsuit against the Columbia-based campus over its firearms’ ban, saying it’s unconstitutional and compromises the safety of innocents.

Royce de Barondes, who also teaches a class on firearms law, said he possesses “extensive knowledge and training on the lawful use and safe handling of a firearm,” and has a concealed carry permit, Fox News reported.

But the school still won’t let him carry on campus. So he filed a motion to change that policy.

“[The gun ban makes] law-abiders more vulnerable to attack by law-breakers, [and] unlawfully and unconstitutionally violates plaintiffs’ individual rights to keep and carry a firearm for self-defense,” the suit, filed in late September, states.

Campus officials, contacted for comment Thursday – around the same time Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, was shooting and killing scores at a community college in Oregon, as WND reported – declined to comment on the suit.

“We do have a policy that allows students or guests to store firearms at a secure police facility on campus,” spokesman Christian Basi said to Fox News.

Barondes said that’s not good enough. He’s named university president Tim Wolfe as a defendant, and accused the school was violating both federal and state constitutional laws.

Fox News found Missouri is one of 20 states with laws banning guns on campus.
