The Kentucky Supreme Court has ruled that guns and other deadly weapons may be stored in a car's glove compartment while on a college campus in the state.

The high court's ruling on Thursday came in the case of University of Kentucky graduate student and anesthesia technician Michael Mitchell, who lost his job in 2009 after campus police found a semi-automatic pistol in his car.

Mitchell, who has a concealed weapons permit, sued the university over the firing. Fayette Circuit Judge Pamela Goodwine ruled in favor of the university. The high court reinstated Mitchell's suit after concluding that the law allows guns to be kept in a car's glove compartment.
