News is coming in that there has been a mass stabbing at the University of Texas’ Austin campus. According to the Austin American Statesman, one person has been stabbed to death and three more people were injured before the attacker was taken into custody.
The University of Texas’ Austin campus has been in the news recently due to the passage of the “Campus Carry” law and the subsequent opposition to its implementation by members of the faculty and students under the banner Gun Free UT. Their opinion has been that the campus is perfectly safe enough with the current staffing of police officers, and the addition of concealed handguns would actually make campus less safe.
