Latin American Studies Association statement against Campus Carry

The Latin American Studies Association joins the American Political Science Association (APSA) in its deep concern about the impact of of Texas’s new Campus Carry law on freedom of expression in Texas universities. The law, which was passed earlier this year and takes effect in 2016, allows licensed handgun carriers to bring concealed handguns into buildings on Texas campuses.  LASA stands with APSA in its concern that the Campus Carry law and similar laws in other states might introduce serious safety threats on college campuses with a resulting harmful effect on professors and students and the free expression of ideas.
