NJ – GUN RIGHTS – Montclair students sue after cops stop protest against gun-free school zone

A conservative Christian legal group is suing Montclair State University for allegedly trampling on the rights of a libertarian student group that was protesting gun control on campus. The Alliance Defending Freedom on Wednesday filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court of New Jersey seeking a judge’s order to overturn policies that prevent students from holding peaceful, unobtrusive demonstrations without first getting administrative approval two weeks in advance. The lawsuit also says that the university’s Bias Education Response Taskforce has the potential to treat unpopular opinions as hate speech and punish offending students with forced “reeducation.” The lawsuit centers on an incident in September during which sophomore Mena Botros and two other students dressed up as prisoners to protest gun-free school zones, which they believe benefit criminals at the expense of law-abiding citizens. Even though the demonstrators were not blocking anyone’s way or making noise, the lawsuit says a campus police officer ordered them to leave because they had not obtained a “speech permit.” The lawsuit also says that the student government is preventing the Young Americans for Liberty from securing funding from student fees even though liberal and progressive groups including YesSheCanCampaign, Environmental Club, Animal Activists, Justice for Education and Femvolution receive funding. The university collects $1.5 million a semester by charging students a $48.90 student activity fee.   [full article]
