Texas Prof: Illegal Guns OK, But Not Legally Carried Ones

posted on August 10, 2017

A Texas professor who is wearing body armor and a combat helmet to class because he says he is scared of the state’s campus-carry law apparently thinks it’s fine for criminals to have guns on campus, just not law-abiding gun owners with carry permits.

Speaking to Foxnews.com, San Antonio college geography instructor Charles K. Smith accidentally let the truth spill when talking about the law, which went into effect in state universities a year ago with no problems, but just took effect this month at state community colleges.

“I realize students were carrying guns on campus illegally, but now it’s legal to do so,” Smith said. “It increases the chances of something happening.”

He’s right about one thing in that statement: It does increase the “chances of something happening”—specifically it increases the chance of a law-abiding carry-permit holder protecting him or herself and others should a violent criminal attack them while on campus.
