There seems to be a large contingency that would disagree with you....
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.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.
Dangerous Weapons on Campus As a component of the University of Texas System, The University of Texas at Tyler in an institution of higher education, complete with training and teaching centers and students. It is in the interest of the safety of students, employees and visitors, that there is no tolerance for dangerous weapons on the campus of the University of Texas at Tyler. A dangerous weapon is described as any firearm, explosive device or illegal knife. The campus is described as the grounds upon which the University is located, as well as the buildings and vehicles within that boundary. To possess a dangerous weapon means to have that weapon under your control while on campus.Section 46.03 of the Texas Penal Code states that "A person commits an offense if, with a firearm, or explosive weapon, or illegal knife, he intentionally, knowingly or recklessly goes on the premises of a school or educational institution, whether public or private, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution and that offense under this section is a third degree felony". The fact that a person is licensed to carry a concealed firearm does not give him or her legal standing to carry a firearm into any building on the campus of the University of Texas at Tyler. Remember that it is in the interest of the safety of our students, employees and visitors that this regulation will continue to be enforced. There is never an excuse for bringing a dangerous weapon into any building on campus. There are no exceptions to this regulation.
