UT Austin昨日允许在教室可持枪,教员威胁辞职

中央社综合外电报导 美国德州大学奥斯汀分校(UT Austin)昨日(2月17日)勉强同意让学生在教室携带枪支,但大致上禁止在宿舍携枪。数月前,德州国会议员通过法案,宣布公立大学禁枪不合法。

 

法新社报导,德州大学奥斯汀分校校长范弗斯(Gregory Fenves)在声明中说:「我不认为枪支应该出现在大学校园,因此这项决定是我担任校长以来的最大挑战。」

 

他说:「许多教职人员、学生与家长签署请愿书、寄发电子与书面信件并组织活动禁止校园尤其教室使用枪支,我与他们感同身受。」

 

一些教职成员威胁辞职,也不愿让学生在教室携枪,表明这类武器的存在也威胁本意在鼓励辩论的环境。

由于德州大学奥斯汀分校是美国首批校园滥射案地点之一,因此这个议题特别敏感。有心理困扰的前陆战队队员惠特曼(Charles Whitman),1966年从该校钟塔观测台开枪,造成14人身亡与约30人受伤。

 

在政治立场保守且有牛仔精神和边界历史的德州,国会议员去年8月通过法案,禁止公立大学校园实施禁枪令。

 

魅力休斯顿网Cumin编译自KPRC  德州大学奥斯汀分校同时对持枪做出了其他细节规定:

在大学校园的宿舍楼内仍然禁止持枪

在大学校园内不得暴露出枪支的任何一个部分

不得携带上膛的半自动手枪

必须将手枪放在枪套内,遮住扳机以及扳机触发防御区

 

以下12种活动中不得携带手枪:

投票站内不得携带手枪(德州大学内有这样的地点)

在法庭内不得携带手枪(德州大学的法学院内有一间法庭)

在德州大学的运动场所内不得携带手枪

UT Austin's Campus Carry Policies

Feb. 17, 2016

 

Dear UT students, faculty and staff:

 

I have decided on the policies for UT Austin that comply with Senate Bill 11, the Campus Carry legislation that goes into effect Aug. 1, 2016, and submitted them this morning to Chancellor William McRaven. Please see my letter to the chancellor and the policy document that details my decision.

 

I have thoroughly reviewed the policy recommendations of the Campus Carry Working Group and decided to adopt them. Under the law, I cannot adopt a policy that has the general effect of excluding licensed concealed handguns from campus. I agree with the working group that a classroom exclusion would have this effect. As we have communicated since last June when SB 11 was approved by the Texas Legislature, current law does not permit open carry of handguns on campus or our buildings under any circumstances. 

 

I do not believe handguns belong on a university campus, so this decision has been the greatest challenge of my presidency to date. I empathize with the many faculty members, staffers, students and parents of students who signed petitions, sent emails and letters, and organized to ban guns from campus and especially classrooms. As a professor, I understand the deep concerns raised by so many. However, as president, I have an obligation to uphold the law. 

 

I have appointed a Campus Carry Implementation Task Force to be led by Dr. Gerald R. Harkins, associate vice president for campus safety and security, to deal with the many aspects of implementing these policies. The Task Force will develop guidelines, rules and practices, as well as address the process for determining gun-exclusion zones under the policies. Because SB 11 is a new law, we will monitor its effects on our teaching and research, as well as our ability to recruit and retain faculty members and students.

 

Although there is great anxiety about the impact of SB 11, I urge you not to let this weaken us as a university community. The world looks to UT with the highest regard for our excellence, our pride and our unity. Let us show the world that UT can face such challenges.

 

I am proud of the accomplishments and hard work I see across campus every day. UT is a vibrant community that is leading the world. I commit to you that we will provide for safety while fullfilling our vital role as a leader in learning and discovery.

 

Sincerely,

Gregory L. Fenves
