Don Haskins EPCC graduation (12/15 plus UTEP graduation two days later).

#1

Post by EP45 » Fri Dec 13, 2019 6:35 pm

Hello, I am at a graduation at UTEP in El Paso, for El Paso community college. 30.06 sign in the entrance I went through. No metal detector, told me I couldn’t bring in Knife or pepper spray.

Both UTEP and EPCC are Texas institutions having to opt into campus carry. Wondering the legality of having a 30.06 sign.

Comments would be appreciated thanks.

Did UTEP opt in to campus carry? That is crazy. Never would have expected that. I graduated there in 1991.

I believe they had to opt in as they are a public institution of Texas as is EPCC (EPCC is a community college).

Thought ALL PUBLIC Colleges and Community Colleges HAD to allow Concealed Carry with specific areas that could be prohibited, but there had to be justification for the prohibition.

I believe Haskin Center an exclusion zone in certain, circumstances (e.g. sporting events). UTEP campus carry website https://www.utep.edu/campuscarry/exclus ... index.html

This. If it’s a public university, they can’t "opt out". All they can do is post certain limited areas with 30.06 signs, in addition to the areas that have always been off-limits, like sporting events venues, certain laboratories, etc.

Back at the Don Haskin’s Center for UTEP graduation this time. Same 30.06 signs+ others. Pretty, sure not in compliance with law and/or UTEP campus carry policy. Will address in more depth later.
