Federal Court Rejects Campus Carry Challenge

A federal court upheld a prior dismissal of a challenge to Texas’s campus carry law Thursday, providing individuals with a concealed carry permit the ability to carry a firearm on public university property.

The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected to revive the lawsuit by three University of Texas at Austin professors, upholding a 2015 law that the trio challenged in July 2016, yet was ultimately dismissed.

The professors claimed that the aforementioned law would violate an individual’s constitutional rights of free speech, due process and equal protection and would “have a substantial chilling effect on class discussion.” (RELATED: Liberal Court Rules The Second Amendment Protects The Right To Openly Carry A Firearm)

The three-judge panel rejected the assertion, arguing that there is not proof of any impending harm to rationalize such fears.

“The lawsuit was filed because the professors disagreed with the law, not because they had any legal substance to their claim,” said Ken Paxton, attorney general for the state of Texas, according to The Texas Tribune.

“The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed for all Americans, including college students,” Paxton continued. “The Fifth Circuit’s decision prevents that right from being stripped away by three individuals who oppose the law enacted by the Legislature.”

The professors do not plan on filing a further appeal.

It's called *concealed carry* for a reason. 

Not that I'm knocking the decision.

Bingo!

To Pan's point..."concealed"...not "brandished"...if these poor little Profs and snowflakes shake, shiver and piss themselves in fear by imagining other people around them may be carrying a concealed weapon....well, that's their damn problem, work it out!  The proof that their unfounded fear is all in their diseased heads can further be illustrated by the fact that they seem not to experience the same fear of criminals with guns, border-runners with guns, gang bangers and drug peddlers with guns, pimps with guns, etc.  The fear-center of their brain like most areas of their brain is corrupted by the proglodyte virus...maybe a good whack upside the head may realign their neurons...but I don't care really, if they are piss-pants-scared of good people carrying concealed weapons...I say "I'm OK with that".

 :D

It is nice to see a place with a sensible AG and rational judges...nipping the twisted logic that any good citizen with a concealed weapon is assumed to be a criminal is BS that needs to end yesterday.

Can someone explain why I get so much joy from that mental picture?

I have friends who were worried about going to school in Tx because of cc. Typical libs  assuming only crazy folks would have guns. I thought "you're probably safer than your buddies at other state universities. "

Yup, but these non-thinking pre-programmed drones take it at face value that sheltering in place and waiting your turn to be slaughtered by a non-NRA non-CCW mass murderer is a better way to go while they wait for the police to act and while they wait for their politicians to ban guns to those in their midst who would drop those losers at the first sign of trouble is a better option than being saved from harm by said CCW holder.  That such nonsense is tolerated is a sign of deep societal degeneration.  It is mass insanity.

In the same vein, I've heard it said they'd rather a woman be strangled with her own pantyhose and raped than defend herself with a gun.
