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

Not that I'm knocking the decision.
Politics/Legislation/Elections / 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.

Cardinal Raymond Burke has called upon Pope Francis to clean up what he calls a "homosexual culture" in the Church that has contributed to the sex abuse crisis.

As noted by Matt Walsh and other Catholic commentators, roughly 80% of the sexual abuse victims in the Catholic Church were male, many of them being postpubescent. Recently-ousted Cardinal Theodore McCarrick had sexual relations with both adult males and minors; far too often, he preyed on male seminarians entering the priesthood.

Speaking with Thomas McKenna of Catholic Action for Faith and Family, Cardinal Burke called for a purge on homosexual behavior in the clergy, which would include an outright ban on homosexual priests.

"It was clear after the studies following the 2002 sexual abuse crisis that most of the acts of abuse were in fact homosexual acts committed with adolescent young men," said Burke. "There was a studied attempt to either overlook or to deny this.

Burke continued: "Now it seems clear in light of these recent terrible scandals that indeed there is a homosexual culture, not only among the clergy but even within the hierarchy, which needs to be purified at the root. It is of course a tendency that is disordered."

The cardinal went on to say that Catholics should rightly feel scandalized but asked they direct their blame toward the men responsible and not the Church itself.

"We should be profoundly ashamed of what certain shepherds, certain bishops, have done, but we should never be ashamed of the Church because we know that it is pure and that it is Christ Himself, alive for us in the Church, Who alone is our way to salvation," said Burke. "There is a great temptation that our justified anger over these gravely immoral acts will lead us to lose faith in the Church or to be angry with the Church, instead of angry with those who, even though they held the highest authority in the Church, have betrayed that authority and have acted in an immoral way."

In May of this year, Pope Francis went as far to warn the Italian bishops about homosexual applicants seeking to join the priesthood and why they should not be allowed. His position followed that of Pope Benedict, who emphasized that men "who practice homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies, or support the so-called ‘gay culture’” could be denied entry into the priest

The judge presiding over former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's trial revealed on Friday that he has been receiving threats over the case and is now receiving protection from U.S. Marshals.

The revelation came after U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III denied a request from CNN and other left-of-center media outlets which sought to obtain the names and addresses of the 12 jurors in the trial, the Washington Examiner reported.

"I don’t feel right if I release their names," Ellis said, according to Fox News' Jake Gibson. "I think there would be a substantial amount of people afraid... to do so would create a risk of harm to them."

"The Marshals go where I go," Ellis added.

Fox News noted that the other news organizations that tried to obtain the information include The Washington Post, The New York Times, the Associated Press, NBC, Politico, and BuzzFeed — all of which are widely viewed as left-leaning.

"I had no idea this case would excite these emotions, quite frankly," Ellis said.

Jurors entered the second day of deliberations on Friday over the multiple tax evasion and bank fraud charges filed against Manafort.

Dear Lord these people are imbeciles!  Socialism kills, it kills the brain, it kills the will eventually kill everything it touches.

32,714% inflation...two days ago, has to be worse today...and the answer for socialists is adding then taking away zeroes on the shatwipe they call bolivars?

Still...socialists here are just as stupid, just as hive-minded, just as do not think for a nano-second "it could never happen here".

Lord sounds like Germany after WWI,  need a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread.  Taking the zero's off it doesn't make it any less worthless.
Golly!!!!   Bet this un's not going to be in line for a pardon....
