Re: Is Campus Carry prohibited by state law or campus rules?

It is a violation of PC 46.03(a)(1) to carry in the buildings of any school. The school may make rules allowing it, but if there is no rule made, it is a crime. This applies to anyone without regard to their relationship with the school.

By definition, you may have it in your car while on campus without breaking the law. This may be prohibited by the school, in which case it is an administrative punishment (firing or expelling a student). There is some legal debate if 30.05 can prohibit a CHL from carrying in their car or not, mostly due to unintentional wording of the law to protect CHL's in certain other situations.
