This past weekend the Executive Committee of the Texas Conference of the AAUP issued the following statement:
The Executive Committee of the Texas Conference of the American Association of University Professors continues to oppose the ‘campus carry’ laws. College campuses are marketplaces of ideas, and a rigorous academic exchange of ideas is chilled by weapons on campus. The Executive Committee of the Texas Conference of the American Association of University Professors strongly supports faculty efforts to make college campuses as safe and weapon-free as possible for students, faculty, staff, parents, and community members.
