“SB 11, signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott in June, allows licensed permit holders to carry concealed handguns on public college and university campuses beginning August 1st, 2016,” kxan.com reports. “The law allows university presidents to establish rules, regulations, and provisions regarding campus carry.” And so University of Texas Prez Gregory Fenves has established a working committee to [at least appear to] consider input from faculty, staff, students, alumni and administrators on how to implement campus carry at UT. Now if it was me . . .
There wouldn’t be any rules and regulations above and beyond the law itself. Something about personal responsibility. And the fact that there are PLENTY of laws regarding the lawful use of firearms. But you can bet that UT – which protested the law from the git-go – will do anything it can to make it as difficult as possible for lawful gun owners to carry lawfully on UT campuses, including ensuring that entire part of the campus remain “gun free zones.”
But I’m open-minded. What campus carry regs to do you suggest for Mr. Febres? [Click here to fill out their survey]
