The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston recently submitted a planto comply with a new law in Texas that will allow anyone holding a valid concealed handgun license to carry a gun on public college campuses starting Aug. 1, according to a post on the Healthcare Facilities Today website.
Because MD Anderson is a public institution of higher learning, it must comply with the Campus Carry law, even though many other hospitals in the state are exempt, according to an article on the Becker's Hospital Review.
Under the plan, people will be allowed to conceal and carry on certain parts of the MD Anderson campus.
Guns will be allowed in most of the hospital's administrative offices, landscaping and storage warehouses and some parking garages.
