Carry permit holders can now carry guns on college campuses in Texas.
WND reported on 4/18 that Texas A&M University officials gave students the right to conceal carry in classrooms and in campus facilities with “few major restrictions” as stated in a new campus gun policy handbook.
Chancellor John Sharp made the decision to go the pro-gun route with some exceptions at Prarie View A&M, Texas A&M International University and A&M Corpus Christi due to those locationg having “dorms that are leased by third-party companies.”
The new firearm rules will go into effect on August 1.
The University of Texas also changed their policy position on guns, allowing them to be carried inside classrooms but not in dormitories.
Sharp spoke with the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, saying “Do I trust my students, faculty and staff to work and live responsibly under the same laws at the university as they do at home? Of course I do.”
Following several mass shootings at college campuses nationwide over the last decade, Texas A&M and the University of Texas agreed to what many would call an obvious move towards safety and security – they’ve chosen to allow students to fight back against drugged out murderous criminals with firearms of their own.
