AUSTIN, TEXAS – -(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday, July 11, 2018, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit will hear oral arguments in Jennifer Glass, et al v. Ken Paxton, et al­, a lawsuit challenging both Texas' campus carry law and the University of Texas at Austin's campus carry policy.

The case will be heard during the court's AM session, in the En Banc courtroom of the John Minor Wisdom United States Court of Appeals Building in New Orleans.

In February, Students for Concealed Carry (SCC) and the Students for Concealed Carry Foundation (SCCF) filed a joint amicus curiae brief in this case. Because the case is pending, SCC has no further comment at this time.

    1. It was said, we are becoming just like a third world country. I think we are already there. We are at war; we have more killing than we have ever had, bombing, school killings and the list goes on. As long as the justice system is allowed to pick and chose who is/isn’t at fault (cases in Texas and Michigan), only the felons know the system well enough not to fear it.
      As distressing as it may seem, we have come to a point in our society to be able to protect ourselves it is going to require being able to carry a weapon. I think it’s a matter of keeping the criminals confused as to who is/isn’t carrying guns. If everyone can carry, would you be so cavalier as to walk into a store to rob it, mug someone, to attack a school knowing the kids, as well as the teachers, are going to shoot back?

      1. Re: “we have more killing than we have ever had”
        This is absolutely false. You are carrying the anti-gunners’ water for them when you make such a claim; they argue that the increase in the number of guns in our society has led to more violence. Exactly the opposite is true. The murder rate today (despite a small uptick in the last couple of years) is less than half of what it was 20 years ago, and other violent crimes have seen similar decreases.

        While the reason for such dramatic drops in violent crime is partly demographics, at least some of the credit goes to the increasing number of people who own guns for defensive purposes and especially to the explosion in the number of people legally carrying concealed, thanks to the overwhelming success of the “shall-issue” and “Constitutional carry” movements.

    2. If they are already qualified for CC then they should be able to carry on campus. To many colleges are unprotected killing zones. Stay alert. Stay armed. Practice. The police will only show up AFTER your dead.
