Attorney General Ken Paxton yesterday filed a brief with the U.S. District Court opposing a request by three University of Texas professors for a preliminary injunction to block Texas’ new campus carry law that went into effect on August 1.

“It is a frivolous lawsuit and I’m confident it will be dismissed because the Legislature passed a constitutionally-sound law,” Attorney General Paxton said. “There is no legal justification to deny licensed, law-abiding citizens on campus the same measure of personal protection they are entitled to elsewhere in Texas.”
