Demanding Moms Miss The Mark—Again

posted on September 16, 2016

Michael Bloomberg’s Demanding Moms, who are trying to use a frat house assault to make a point about campus carry, have picked the wrong incident on which to base their rant. An article in UT-based Daily Texan was posted online by the Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action, saying, “As if it needed repeating, booze, college kids and guns do NOT mix … Three arrests related to the The University of Texas at Austin Sigma Chi fraternity shooting early Sunday morning were made last night.”

In truth, the incident was in no way related to the new campus-carry law that took effect on Aug. 1, which simply did away with the ban on Texans with concealed-carry permits carrying their firearms on campus properties—just like they can when not on campus.

In this incident, the shooter, who was 18, was not a student at UT and was not a concealed-carry permit holder (he wasn’t even old enough to apply). In fact, the shooting didn’t even occur on campus. According to local police, the shooter was highly intoxicated, despite also being too young to legally drink, and had used Xanax before the incident.
