Sounds like the University of Kentucky has too much taxpayers money. That should be fixed for the commies.
The article doesn't say, but I'm assuming that wherever his car was, it was not on school property (considering it was a mile away). Is that correct that he wasn't parked on school property?
If so, the case seems simple to decide given the context of the more recent Supreme Court rulings, and he'll win easily. If not, it probably becomes a bit more complicated. Even with Heller & McDonald, the Court carves out exceptions for "sensitive" places like schools.
No mention of a civil suit. I hope Mitchell sues UK.
UK took this action because they thought they were about the law and could get away with it. Time to fix that.
When did Pennsyltucky go Left?
Next they’ll be banning Bourbon and Cigars
For the life of me, I can’t understand why we aren’t allowed to protect ourselves at work, schools, churches and gubmint buildings.
I got fired for the same thing in 2001 while working for a major bank. They found out I had a gun in my car and 3 weeks later I was gone.

As long as it isn't passed on to the citizens, I hope he owns them.
Hmmmm. UMM. The Univerisity of Michael Mitchell, featuring the Michael Mitchell Wildcats...
Time for a lawsuit.
Yup. Criminals are deviates but they aren’t necessarily stupid. Some are quite clever.
They are often masters at gaming the system.
nose of the camel in the tent syndrome = firearms confiscation creep
As long as this story is complete then Mr Mitchell ought to be retiring soon! I hope he bankrupts them!
We who still believe in the Constitution must understand that only the rules and laws of LIBERALISM have any actual standing today. Until the Republicans we elect to defend our nation and liberty begin to do their JOBS, it will never change.
“Even with Heller & McDonald, the Court carves out exceptions for “sensitive” places like schools.”
ODH, ever heard a cogent explanation as to why carrying a concealed weapon is more dangerous in these “sensitive” places than, say, leaving it in your car a mile away?
I thought folks in Kentucky were a little more sane than this...
complete??? there is no pertinent info.....whose property was the car on??? how did the school come to find out???? who writes this $h!t......
I'm not defending the logic (or more correctly - illogic) of UK's gun policy. I'm just saying that as a matter of law, plaintiff's case is wanting (at best) if he was actually parked on University property. If he didn't park on University property, he probably prevails on appeal. If he did park on University property, he likely doesn't. That's all I'm saying.
