TX Attorney General: Public colleges can’t ban handguns from campus

Texas gun rights activists won another victory to expand gun possession on college campuses.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton declared that public colleges and universities could not ban handguns from dormitories and campus buildings, according to U.S. News and World Report.

Paxton was previously asked to clarify the interpretation of Texas’s new law, set to take effect next August that allows concealed handguns on public colleges and universities, on whether gun-free zones could stand.

His declaration that a public college cannot ban the handguns is non-binding, but gives support to supporters of the new law.

“If an institution prohibited the carrying of concealed handguns in a substantial number of classrooms, a court would likely conclude that the effect would be to ‘generally prohibit’ license holders from carrying concealed handguns on campus, contrary to the Legislature’s express requirements,” Paxton wrote.
