The Virginia Supreme Court has upheld George Mason University’s prohibition against guns in campus buildings and at sports and entertainment events.
The justices on Thursday unanimously affirmed Fairfax Circuit Judge Michael McWeeny’s ruling that the policy does not violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Gun owner Rudolph DiGiacinto challenged the university’s policy.
DiGiacinto is not a student, but he uses the university’s libraries and other facilities and he wanted to be able to carry his gun.
The justices noted that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that guns can be prohibited in “sensitive places” like schools and government buildings.
