In Texas in this particular instance the weapon laws cover "higher education" (colleges & Universities) as schools. Each chapter of the Texas penal code begins with definitions that are accurate for only that chapter. Also true in education codes. For example, a "child" is defined differently in different chapters and the age changes along with the chapter definitions. Just something to remember when dealing with law books.
