TCU Opts Out of Texas Campus Carry Law
Via the DMN: TCU votes to opt out of campus carry
Public colleges and universities have drawn most of the attention in the campus carry debate, since they can’t, under the law, totally opt out. And discussions remain ongoing at those campuses over what kind of gun-free zones might be established.
But private schools retained the power to ban guns on campus, since lawmakers said they didn’t want to interfere with private property rights. Those schools just have to get campus input first, which TCU did in recent weeks through forums and surveys.
Nope, neither ideologues nor hypocrites, these Texas lawmakers.
From the close of the article at the DMN: “I feel comfortable with anybody that’s on campus with a gun,” TCU freshman David Laughlin said at a forum last month, according to The Texas Tribune. “I don’t think anybody would be a threat.”
All you have to do is open any newspaper on any day of the week to be confronted with yet another story of somebody who had no business walking around with a gun, walking around with a gun. I guess they don’t have newspapers or the internet in Texas. Either that or their admission standards are so low a 3 year old can get in.
The law gave the campuses a choice. This school made its choice. That’s their right.

Exactly, what could possibly go wrong on a university campus wherein hundreds, perhaps thousands, of immature hormonal male students are carrying guns? (la la la la la la la)
