Forgive me for not being overjoyed at this development. I'd much rather that the legislative action was such that it could have been characterized as "Texas legislature realizes the error of its ways and removes language from the law that infringes on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms on college campi." Instead, we have a situation where the legislature is granting permission to partially exercise the Right and partially infringe on it.
When we accept the authority of the State to grant permission to do something, at the same time, we accept their authority to deny that permission.
While this may keep some from facing punishment for doing something reasonable, it is not an entirely positive turn of events. It definitely has a huge downside!
