An update on an earlier post. Campus carry in Texas went into effect August first, but classes at the university of Texas do not start until tomorrow. Three professors filed a suit shortly after the law went into effect hoping to stop campus carry before classes start. They wanted to be able to prohibit lawfully carried guns in their classrooms. They claimed it violates their 1st and 14th amendment rights.
The federal judge determined that
"that neither the Texas Legislature nor the UT Board of Regents overstepped its legitimate power to determine where a licensed individual may carry a concealed handgun in an academic setting."
As mentioned, the first day of classes at the university of Texas starts tomorrow. The Mad Moms are planning a protest. They'll be joined by a student movement known as "Cocks not Glocks" who distribute, carry and dangle dildos from their backpacks in some sort of bizarre protest comparing lawfully carrying a concealed handgun to openly carrying a plastic phallus. I kid you not.
