Concealed carry on college campuses has come a long way in the last few years.

This serves as further proof.

University of Texas Task Force Recommends Allowing Concealed Guns in Class

Students at the University of Texas at Austin can’t carry concealed handguns in the dorms, but they should be allowed to tote them inside their classrooms, a task force reluctantly recommended Thursday.

While members of the Campus Carry Policy Working Group said it “would be best” to not permit guns in classes at all, a “campus carry” law that goes into effect next August is forcing them to endorse the measure.

The gun guidelines come as pro-gun groups gear up for a controversial “mock mass shooting” demonstration planned near the campus this weekend. The event would feature prop guns, people dressed as victims and the sound of bullets on a loudspeaker, organizers said.

The campus-carry panel’s report also detailed recommendations for exactly where licensed gun owners can carry their concealed weapons on campus and how to properly hold and store them.

The task force members said they could not recommend banning handguns from classrooms because of the pending state law — despite their own hesitations and “overwhelming sentiment” on campus that the weapons should not be permitted there.

“Let me be perfectly clear about this, every member of the working group thinks that we would be best if we did not have handguns in the classroom,” Steven Goode, a professor at the university’s school of law and chair of the task force, said at a news conference Thursday.
