UT Dean Resigns Over Law Protecting 2A On Campus

posted on March 1, 2016

The dean of the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Architecture announced Thursday that he’s leaving the school in part because he opposes the new Texas law protecting CHL holders who carry on public college campuses. He’ll depart one month before the new law takes effect in August. 

Frederick Steiner, dean of the architecture school for the past 15 years, said he’s leaving to take a similar post at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, where he won’t have to tremble over licensed, trained, background-checked, law-abiding, 21-year-old students carrying those scary unseen guns—though he’ll probably have to deal with quite a few more aggravated assaults, robberies, rapes and murders on campus.

“I knew I would have to enforce the law even if I didn’t believe in it,” Steiner told the Philadelphia Inquirer. But what’s so “distasteful” about “enforcing a law” that amounts to restoring rights rather than infringing on them?
