By the time Texas campus carry law takes effect next fall, a University of Texas professor said he’ll be long gone.

Daniel S. Hamermesh, an economics professor emeritus, told KTBC-TV in Austin that he’d fear for his safety if he stayed, especially since he would be teaching in a large lecture hall.

“I just don’t want to take the risk of teaching a very large class where students do get disgruntled because of the grading and how they perceive they should be doing,” he told the station.

The campus carry legislation, signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in June, will allow concealed carry license holders to carry guns on Texas campuses beginning next August.

Hamermesh, who has been with UT since 1993, retired last year but has been teaching one large class each fall. He told KTBC he’ll leave the campus following this fall semester.
