Professors Sue University of Texas For Right to Ban Guns in Class

posted on July 20, 2016

Texas campus carry is set to go into effect on Aug. 1. On that day, gun owners with concealed-carry licenses will be able to carry handguns on college campuses—including campus buildings, classrooms and dorms.

Three anti-gun professors at the University of Texas in Austin, however, have filed a lawsuit in the hopes of blocking that law. Mia Carter, Jennifer Lynn Glass and Lisa Moore call the measure an “overly solicitous, dangerously experimental” law. 

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton reacted swiftly and sternly in decrying the lawsuit. “This lawsuit is not only baseless, it is an insult to the millions of law-abiding gun owners in Texas and across this country,” read a statement posted on the AG’s website. “The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed for all Americans, including college students, and must be vigilantly protected and preserved.”
