As Campus Reform reported, the Texas Attorney General is being asked about the legality of restrictions on college campuses:

Republican State Sen. Brian Birdwell sought the interpretation of Attorney General Ken Paxton,WOAI reports, in a letter prompted by the University of Texas Faculty Council’s recent vote to recommend that the school implement such a ban when campus carry takes effect this summer.

“The Act prohibits public colleges from adopting any rule, regulation, or other provision prohibiting license holders from carrying handguns onto the campus of the institution,” Birdwell reminds Paxton in the letter, adding, “[f]or purposes of the act, ‘campus’ is defined to include ‘all land and buildings owned or leased by the college’.”
