Texas To Allow Students To Bring Guns To College Campuses

guns on college campusesGuns: is there anything they can’t solve? KHOU Houston reports:

The Texas Legislature has approved a bill allowing students with proper licenses to keep guns in their cars on college campuses.

The House and Senate previously passed the proposal by Republican Senator Glenn Hegary. Both chambers on Sunday then approved a version reconciled in conference committee, sending it to Gov. Rick Perry’s desk to be signed into law.

The measure sparked some debate in the Senate and passed only after Democrats received assurances it wouldn’t be expanded to allow carrying guns on campus. House approval was easier.

Under current law, universities can post a sign prohibiting guns like any private property owner. But the approved measure overrides that.

    What can go wrong with that?

    Texas proves that it is indeed possible to think and go in two opposite directions at once.

    Good! This is the way to go, ending the hysteria. After all: guns do not kill, people do.

      people with guns you mean. i fixed it. you’re welcome.

      • Miles to Code

        No, not only people with guns, but people with knives, lead pipes, hands, cars and the list goes on.

        I fixed it for you. You’re welcome.

          Guns just make it really easy to kill people. And they’re not much good for running errands or taking the kids to soccer practice.

    Are the chances good that the frats will go to war with each other?

    This experiment failed horribly at the University of Colorado. Nobody signed up to live in the concealed weapon dorm.

    More guns = Less Crime. Texas is smarter than most places.

      Of course it does and yes they are.
      This will fix everything and show the rest of the country, especially those pointy headed, godless, cocksucking liberals how things should be done.

      I support the Second Amendment and don’t buy either of those propositions.

      Gross simplification = Charlie Primero.

    • eyebeam

      We’ll see.

    Charles Whitman thinks this a great idea
    a lot of returning vets attending Texas schools
    now have something to shoot for
    as they try to beat Whitman’s record

    couldn’t have been done without the Texas legislatures help
    they deserve a big round of applause

    what gun owners neglect is the fact that i do not want armed vigilantes walking around looking for trouble where their response would jeopardize the safety of others. keep the guns at home or at your gun club. fine with me.

  • Miles to Code

    Unless they’re doing drive by killings, why is this such a big deal? The weapons are in their cars. As long as they’re not taking them to class, are the chances that great that their particular car is broken in to,

    is this a CCW ruling or what?
    again this is confusing. if the student legally holds a CCW then automatically and by definition no one sees, no one knows. do these postings saying ‘no firearms allowed’? carry the force of law? if not then i always carry. just because a sign says something it does not necessarily carry the force of law behind it
