No-gunsFrom The Texas Tribune (3/13/13):

As lawmakers prepare to discuss allowing concealed handguns in college and university buildings on Thursday, the chancellor of the state’s largest university system continues to express his concerns with such proposals.

University of Texas System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa sent a letter Tuesday to Gov. Rick Perry reiterating the concerns he expressed in the previous legislative session when the issue came up.

“Both supporters and opponents of permitting concealed handguns on university campuses believe their approach will make campuses safer,” Cigarroa wrote. “I believe that, on balance, the permitted presence of concealed weapons will contribute to a less-safe campus environment.”
