Please hit this poll - currently 47% in favor, 52 against...
Poll is meaningless. Students can already carry "at" colleges and universities.
There seems to be a large contingency that would disagree with you....
What contigency would that be, and with what do "they" disagree?
The article speaks of carry "at campuses". Campus carry is legal NOW. Carry inside buildings is not legal, and the article never differentiates.
The poll is vague and meaningless.
I agree, they screwed up the wording. But most of these polls are worthless anyway.
Yes - 49.3%
No - 50.7%
Sec. 46.03. PLACES WEAPONS PROHIBITED. (a) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly possesses or goes with a firearm, illegal knife, club, or prohibited weapon listed in Section 46.05(a):
(1) on the physical premises of a school or educational institution, any grounds or building on which an activity sponsored by a school or educational institution is being conducted, or a passenger transportation vehicle of a school or educational institution, whether the school or educational institution is public or private, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution;
(f) It is not a defense to prosecution under this section that the actor possessed a handgun and was licensed to carry a concealed handgun under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code.
Our prosecutor insists that the above would include a college.
Do you guys have something that I can use to prove him wrong?
As far as I know, you cannot carry on any land owned by the college. This includes the parking lots, the sidewalks, and the streets on campus's. This coming from the UPD wesite.
Their website only quotes their POLICY, which is not law. They can kick you off campus for violating policy, but not arrest you.
I am just wondering if there is case law that clarifies 46.03 PC, and says that it is not illegal to carry on a college campus?
As I read it, it is considered a felony to bring a weapon on campus.
