Texas 'campus carry' law expanding to community colleges
July 30, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The state's so-called "campus carry" law will be expanded beginning Tuesday to also include community colleges in Texas.
People with a handgun license will be allowed to carry a concealed firearm on campus, although there will be some restrictions such as in performance halls or child-care centers.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Tarrant County College has put up signs designating some areas as gun-free zones.
TCC spokesman Reginald Gates says rifles remain among the weapons banned on campus, and added that open carry of a handgun also isn't allowed.
