Only One Private Texas University Adopting Campus Carry
By Matthew Watkins and Madeline Conway, The Texas Tribune
Thanks to a new state law, properly licensed college students, faculty and visitors across Texas will be allowed to carry their concealed guns into campus buildings beginning Monday. But that right will be mostly limited to public schools. All but one private university have opted out of the state's controversial campus carry law.
Over the past few months, 37 private universities — ranging from major research institutions like Rice University to small religious schools like Lubbock Christian University — chose to continue banning guns, which they are allowed to do under the new law. The lone school to opt in is Amberton University, a small, nonprofit school based in Garland.
