“The [University of Texas] regents made just one tweak to the [campus carry] policies during Wednesday’s meeting,” chron.com reports, “doing away with a controversial proposed rule that would require people carrying semi-automatic handguns to remove bullets from the guns before bringing them on campus . . .
The regents who voted to strike the rule said they heard from numerous experts who said it would be safer to just leave the guns loaded, rather than trying to take the ammunition out before heading onto campus.
“The body of evidence we’ve received shows it is inherently safer…to not allow guns to be chambered, un-chambered on campus,” said Jeffrey Hildebrand, a regent from Houston who proposed the motion to strike the rule. “The less that one manipulates a gun…the better, and the safer it is.”
So strike one for actual, honest-to-God gun control. Meanwhile, chron.com highlights the fact that university professors will be able to ban firearms from their offices. Because that will stop armed visitors from carrying a concealed gun into their inner sancta. Or not.
