Concealed Carry on Campus Coming To Texas From May 30, 2015 Reuters: The Republican-controlled Texas Senate voted on Saturday to allow the licensed carrying of concealed handguns in most state university buildings. The measure includes a caveat that lets college presidents designate "gun-free zones" on their campuses.What do you want to bet that most college presidents designate their entire campus a "Gun Free Zone"?
Oregon State law also allows the same rights.
University administrators immediately declared that University employees found "packing" faced termination of employment. Students faced termination of enrollment.
College folks do not take it kindly, when someone tells them how to run their campus. And yes, they are within their legal rights to undermine YOUR Constitutional rights!
Since I am neither an employee nor a student, I can carry on campus ... but the campus police can still eject me at their pleasure.
Universities still enforce "Free Speech Zones" too, which means that those who wish to exercise their First amendment rights can be ejected if they prefer to orate where the students hang out instead of in an obscure corner of the campus.
Welcome to the conclave of Constitutional Hell .. the universities which are supposed to be teaching our young people to think for themselves.
Is this a Great Country, or what?
