Texas Dean Steps Down After University of Texas-Austin Allows Campus Carry

Back in October we reported on the Texas Professor that quit because of the new law allowing concealed carry on Texas campuses starting Aug. 1, 2016.

Well, add one more to that list. Today, Fritz Steiner, the dean of the Texas School of architecture, took a job as the dean on the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. He states that he would not have left if it were not for the campus carry law that goes into effect on Aug. 1. The University of Texas-Austin released its policy regarding allowing campus carry this past Wednesday which has some restrictions including not being able to carry with a round in the chamber.

“I thought I would be responsible for enforcing a law I don’t believe in,” Steiner said.

The new law allows universities to create their own policy on carrying concealed on campus. Rice University in Houston, Texas rejected it altogether.

“I grew up hunting. My father was a Marine and a policeman. I’m not a stranger to firearms in any way,” Steiner said. “I grew up believing there was an appropriate place for guns and it was not in a place of higher education and higher learning.”

    Good riddance
    He should teach – “I grew up believing there was an appropriate place for guns and it was not in a place of higher education and higher learning.” – to the nut jobs and criminals who ignore the laws anyway.

      Asinine, eh? Better said as “those in higher education don’t deserve to be able to defend themselves”.

    It’s only since Zio War 1 that the bearing of personal defense weapons among the educated and productive citizenry has been viewed with opprobrium…entirely due to the corrosive influence and culture destroying propaganda of the Zio Nation Wreckers in media and education.

    Penn’s West Philly campus is NOT like Austin at all. Just wait until Ol’ Fritzy gets a bloody taste of West Philly murdering Dindu predation. He’ll then probably whine some DWL/SJW nonsense like “Can’t we all just get along as God’s Children who like to take rides on pink Unicorns, my differently colored urban brothers ? “…
    before his trip to the E R, or the City Morgue.
