Updated 55 mins ago
HOUSTON (KTRK) --

The University of Texas now says they will allow concealed handgun license holders to carry their guns into the classroom.

This change was recommended by a study panel back in December.

Deciding the campus carry policies has been the most difficult decision of my presidency. Please read the details: https://t.co/zs8uwNrrL6
— Greg Fenves (@gregfenves) February 17, 2016



Texas state law requires all public universities to allow licensed concealed handguns owners in the classroom by August 1, but does give some leeway to schools, allowing for gun-free zones. Concealed carry license holders must carry the gun at all times or keep it securely locked in their vehicle or in a dorm in a gun safe

A letter was sent out by UT President Gregory L. Fenves about campus carry.

It is always good when people are allowed to practice the basic human right of self defense.

Public universities will have to comply with this starting August 1. Community/junior colleges will implement it next year.

Kind of a silly statement. I wouldn't think any more people on campus would be carrying while impaired than there is in general society. Most certainly less drunk carriers on campus than at one of your family reunions. grin

As a parent of two college students, I agree and want the threat of CHL available. My insight is there are a number of these young people that have taken the time to get their CHL but now they don't have to leave it in the parking lot.

No more gun free/victim zones for the cowards that want to harm others. My opinion is that not many will carry but the threat is a real deterrent.

Remember the age to be eligible for concealed carry is 21...so its not your son or daughter right out of high school that will be carrying...hopefully a more mature individual. Not sure I would trust myself at 17-18 yo....but the army did so got all the killing out of my system and stayed legal doing it.
