Fifth Circuit Rejects Constitutional Challenges to “Campus Carry”
Texas, like some other states, allows law-abiding adults who have concealed carry licenses to carry at public universities as well as elsewhere; this was challenged on First Amendment, Second Amendment, and Equal Protection Clause grounds.
As with anything Eugene Volokh writes, it is amazingly explanatory and it is a joy to see that the Fifth Circuit handed a legal spanking to the three Liberal Arts Professors from the University of Texas who brought the case to court. Believe it or not, the following was one of the arguments presented to the court:
Glass contends that to the extent the Second Amendment recognizes an individual right to carry firearms, persons not carrying arms have a right to the practice being well-regulated.
Yeah, that dumb.
And as usual, you can read the original court decision here.
