Campus Carry law effective Monday

Denise Cervantes - Special to the Record | Texas Senate Bill 11 (SB 11), also known as “Campus Carry” will go into effect Monday. SB 11 was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott June 1, 2015 and will allow concealed handgun license (CHL) holders to carry a concealed handgun in public university campuses, such as Texas State University. The handgun may not be visible, either partially or wholly. Each Texas public university must comply with the bill and regulate their own campus carry rules.
