Legislation Outlawing Public University Policies which Prevent Licensed Concealed Carry on Campus

  1.  Introduction:

In the State of Florida, state law and educational institutional policies forbid legally permitted individuals from concealed carrying their firearm on the grounds of those institutions. This bill aims to redress this denial of the right to keep and bear arms at educational institutions attended by persons who have reached 18 years of age, making such restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms, illegal.

2.  Declaration of Natural Rights and the Role of Government:

Natural rights are bestowed upon us by our creator upon the moment of our creation, from which come the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, of which property is a part. Natural Rights precede the existence of governments and authoritarian bodies.

The role of governments is to secure not just the natural rights of the people but also the exercise of those rights. Every legitimate action that any government entity takes ultimately ties to the securing of the natural rights of the governed.

The People gave their consent to be governed under the limitations placed within the Constitution. If government acts outside of the powers enumerated or conspires against the rights of the people, it has failed in its purpose.

What the people have never given away because they are born with them, and can not vote away by coercion or other means, are the removal of any natural rights guaranteed by God and freely exercised by the people.  As such, any infringement or encroachment of the right of adults to own and carry firearms, can not be touched by any entity of government, nor any body of law enforcement, per the prohibitions of the Constitution as guaranteed through the Second and Fourteenth Amendments, simply because the adults in question, are attending secondary schools of higher learning.

Since such infringement of the rights of adults attending secondary schools regarding the owning and carrying of firearms is infringed all the time by unconstitutional laws, university boards, university policies, and various law enforcement agencies, this bill to redress this violation of rights is necessary.

Section 1 “Carry of Firearms at Schools”:

In the State of Florida, there exists legal prohibitions, forcing adults of more than 18 years of age from exercising their right to keep and bear arms due to their attendance at an educational institution. By choosing to become students, to seek knowledge and better themselves, these adults must forfeit one of their natural rights. This fact is in direct violation of their Constitutionally protected and God-given rights.

May the appropriate laws be amended to remove the prohibitions on adult students from exercising their right to keep and bear arms while on the grounds of the educational institution they attend. Additionally, may appropriate clauses be added to insure that persons who are there

Section 2 “The Right to Carry as a Student, Preempted”:

May the appropriate laws be amended to prohibit the administrations of educational institutions from passing codes of conduct or disciplinary measures which punish adult students for exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Add additional measures which will fine administrative bodies for violating this law.

    Right to Life and Preservation of Self and Others:

    All persons have a right to life and their independent ability to preserve their own life and the lives of those around them. The 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution and Section 8 of Article 1 of the Constitution of the State of Florida codify the people’s ability to keep and bear arms. This right to keep and bear arms is meant to help preserve life, liberty, and property.

    Maintaining a person’s ability to preserve their life through the keeping and bearing of arms is pivotal to securing their safety. This ability should not be circumvented because of where that person is presently located.

    Now you are talking. Ok, let me play with it a bit and tell me what you think. Here is your original bill. I want to post this so it shows where you started. Your comment above will be preserved also as the bill evolves.

    “In the State of Florida, public universities such as Florida International University and University of Florida are allowed to pass university policies which prevent legally licensed individuals from concealed carrying their firearm on school grounds. Though it’s not in the image of the 2nd Amendment as we would hope, it is a starting place. There should be a law which prevents public universities from passing such policies, forcing stronger restrictions on citizens which have been legally licensed by the state to carry their firearm concealed. We already have a preemption law for preventing local governments from passing stricter gun laws, but this law does not apply to public university campuses which belong to the state, not the local area. University Campuses are governed by the Florida Board of Governors which is an organization beneath the State Government. They should subject to the same rules as everyone else.”

    Now, let’s see where we can take this.

    Declaration of Natural Rights and the Role of Government:

    When the colonies which ultimately became the United States claimed their independence from their English rulers, it was stated that…

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness [pursuit of virtuous living].–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness [by securing those principles and rights].”

    It is can safely inferred that any other natural rights bestowed upon us by our creator upon the moment of our creation are derivative of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness [of which property is a part of]. This body of rights, both the former and latter, precede the existence of governments and authoritarian bodies.

    The role of governments is to secure not just the natural rights of the people but also the principles which they follow in exercise of those rights. This is the one and only true purpose of government. Every action that government takes ultimately ties to the securing of the natural rights of the governed.

    In order to assure the government of the United States of America would be bound to accomplish this mission, the People enumerated the limited powers of the government and codified the rights of the People in the Constitution. It is stated at the forefront of that document that “We the People of the United States… do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    The People gave their consent to be governed under the limitations placed within the Constitution. If government acts outside of the powers enumerated or conspires against the rights of the people, it has failed in its purpose.
