TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida university is going along with an appeals court ruling that says universities can't regulate guns on campus.

University of North Florida President John Delaney on Friday told students and faculty that the university would not appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.

Delaney's message also stated that effective immediately campus rules would allow students to store guns in their cars.

Earlier this month the 1st District Court of Appeal sided with a UNF student and a gun rights group that had challenged a rule regarding guns in cars.

Florida law currently prevents anyone from possessing or exhibiting guns at schools and universities. That ban doesn't automatically apply to guns kept in cars although school districts are allowed to enact their own ban on guns in cars.
