Texas campuses start issuing rules for campus carry of guns

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Wide variations have sprung up in how different Texas universities are planning to allow concealed carry of guns on campus.

People with concealed-carry licenses will be allowed to carry guns on campus starting in August. The Dallas Morning News reports that each public university in the state can write specific rules for how concealed carry will work on their campus.

The University of Texas’ plan would forbid keeping a bullet in the chamber of a semiautomatic handgun. It would also forbid guns in dormitories.

Faculty at the UT-Austin campus will be allowed to ban guns from their individual offices, but not faculty at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Texas Woman’s University will allow guns inside family apartments at its Denton campus, but not on the playground outside.
