Re: Whether the board of trustees of a public junior college may allow licensed concealed handguns in open meetings of the board of trustees (RQ-0158-KP)

S U M M A R Y

A license holder who carries a concealed handgun into an open meeting of a junior college district board of trustees in which no Penal Code section 30.06 trespass notice was posted would have a defense to the prosecution of Penal Code subsection 46.035(c).

Though unnecessary within the context of Government Code subsection 411.2031(d-1), a junior college district board of trustees could adopt a rule authorizing concealed handguns in its open meetings to affirm or publicize a license holder's right to carry the concealed handgun into the open meeting held on the institution's campus.
