ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Officials say the St. Louis Zoo won another legal battle in court.

According to officials, a judge ruled guns are still banned at the zoo.

This ruling, officials say, stems from an incident with gun rights activist, Jeffry Smith, during the summer of 2015. Smith wanted a group of armed people to walk into the zoo to challenge its no-gun policy.

In an official statement, the St. Louis Zoo says they are happy with the judge’s ruling.    

Smith’s lawyer says the fight is not over. The final hearing on the case is pending.
