Accidental Gunshot Is Reported on Texas Campus That Now Allows Firearms


A gun was accidentally discharged on Wednesday night in a dormitory at Tarleton State University, The Texas Tribune reports. The incident occurred less than two months after a Texas law allowing permit holders to carry weapons on public-college campuses took effect.

A university spokesman told the Tribune that the shooting had caused no injuries and only minor property damage.

The law allowed colleges to make exceptions, and some chose to ban guns from dorms. Tarleton State was not one of them, and the person who fired the gun was a license holder, according to the newspaper. The university did not specify if the person was a student.

Critics of the law have said it puts more people at risk of violence, and some faculty members have taken extra steps to bar firearms from their offices. There have also been student protests against the law on campuses across Texas.

that's just the first one that was reported I think, I bet there have been others gone undetected &/or covered up.
