Local attorney, Eric Friday filed a complaint with the court late Monday against St. Petersburg College for not complying with law that allows students and faculty to keep guns in their vehicles parked on campus.
Florida Carry, Inc. sued the University of Florida, seeking a permanent injunction on the school's prohibition of firearms and weapons on all university property in January.
Florida Carry Inc. says they are going to court "to protect the rights of students, faculty, and the public from the university's illegal and unconstitutional regulations."
The group says the Florida Legislature issued state-wide licenses to carry for self-defense in 1987.
In December of 2013, Florida Carry won a similar case challenging a similar ban by the University of North Florida.
