Texas Campus-Carry Law Takes Effect

posted on August 2, 2016

Texas’ new campus-carry law, which permits licensed, law-abiding adults to carry concealed firearms on many college campuses in the state, took effect yesterday. 

And while many opponents are still trying to fight the law, results from other states—like Colorado—that have instituted similar laws show it won’t cause any danger to students, faculty or others. 

It’s easy to understand why: While opponents talk of “drunken teens with guns,” the new law doesn’t arm anyone who wasn’t already licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense or change any laws pertaining to guns and alcohol use. It merely erases the previous invisible boundaries around university property, where the law-abiding were formerly forbidden from practicing their Second Amendment-protected rights, and where criminals could simply ignore the law.
