KHOU is reporting that Texas Tech will allow guns in the classroom.
Texas Tech University plans to ban guns in its recreation center, chapel and some dorms, but won’t prevent students with concealed handgun licenses from carrying in classrooms, the school announced Tuesday.
The policy, which was finalized by Interim President John Opperman, will be reviewed by the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents in April. Under state law, the board doesn’t have to approve the policy but can change it if it sees a need.
“I am confident we have submitted a set of recommendations that respects the spirit of the law while reflecting input from our community,” Opperman said.
