Students Protest The Right To Carry ... Protected By Right-To-Carry Permit Holders

posted on April 30, 2015

You would think that if you were frightened by the right to carry a firearm and you wanted to protest against it as a dangerous practice on your college campus, you'd choose to protest in a location that doesn’t allow firearms.

But ironically, students at the University of Texas-Austin did just the opposite: They staged their protest Tuesday in the West Mall Rally Space—where state law already recognizes the right to carry—rather than in one of the buildings on campus, where the right to carry is currently banished by a state law that the Texas Senate voted in March to repeal.

Irony, anyone? It’s like renting billboards, bankrolling TV commercials and buying USA Today all so you can blanket the United States with the message that free speech and freedom of the press ought to be abolished.
