Texas, like some other states, allows law-abiding adults who have concealed carry licenses to carry at public universities as well as elsewhere; this was challenged on First Amendment, Second Amendment, and Equal Protection Clause grounds.
Even if permanent injunctions against speech that has been found to be libelous are constitutional, preliminary orders based on a mere finding that the speech is likely libelous -- or just might be libelous -- are generally unconstitutional.
The same happened to the case against the Chicago Tribune, in which the judge orally ordered the Tribune to take down a post that contained the picture (though the written order failed to reflect that).
No, says the Fifth Circuit, striking down as unconstitutionally overbroad a Louisiana statute that apparently bans threatening public employees with lawsuits or complaints -- and not just with violence -- “with the intent to influence [the employee's official] conduct.”
Police generally need to investigate matters further, to see if the post was really a threat or sarcasm -- and if they don't investigate further, and don't have a good reason for the immediate arrest, they can be sued for a Fourth Amendment violation, and be denied qualified immunity.

Federal prosecutors have indicted two men for attacking Leagle (an online repository of court opinions), RipOffReport (a consumer gripe site), and JaburgWilk.com (the site of a law firm that sometimes represents RipOffReport).
