    University Ban on Firearms

    So, i know the state universities such as NAU, UofA and ASU do no permit guns on campus.

    I also know that if your not a student or employee all they can do is trespass you if your carrying on campus because it is a policy not a law. Students on the other hand can be expelled or have other institutional consequences.

    How is this legal?
    Am i missing a statute somewhere granting the universities permission to do this? or should they fall under the laws directed at state departments such as the MVD, Etc?

    I know that in Utah and Colorado lawsuits have been brought up and the policies changed to follow state laws, what is preventing this in Arizona?

    Subsection "D" is the "we can make any rule we want" clause.

    Preemption laws don't apply.

    The way to achieve Campus Carry is to explicitly remove the authority of governing boards to create their own rules regarding the carrying of "weapons."

    Following should trump any governing boards authority....

    From the Arizona Constitution:

    26. Bearing arms

    Section 26. The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men.
