Another attack on the second amendment.

In Texas no less.

 

Et Tu Mcraven?

 

University of Texas System Chancellor William McRaven circulated a letter to state lawmakers this week warning that a pending bill to allow guns into college classrooms and dorms would lead to tuition increases and difficulties in recruiting faculty.
In the letter, first reported by the Houston Chronicle, McRaven wrote that faculty may "be discouraged from relocating from other states," thereby making UT schools less competitive. 
"In addressing these costs, our campuses will either need increased revenue or be compelled to reduce or discontinue other services or activities," he added. 
The bill, known as "campus carry," passed the Texas state Senate two months ago, and the state House of Representatives was scheduled to debate the legislation Tuesday. In advance of that debate, McRaven's letter, first written last month, was sent to House members on Monday, the Chronicle notes. 

 

 

Texas law already allows people with a license to carry a handgun on public college campuses. The current bill would extend that to allow firearms onto more parts of campus, including "most university buildings, such as dorms, classrooms and cafeterias," according to The Dallas Morning News. Allowing guns on campus has long proven immensely unpopular in the higher education world, including in relatively conservative states.

 

Hopefully once this is signed into law he will come to his senses. I find it interesting how the liberals in Academia were able to turn him in less than a year.
