Texas College Students Could Soon Pack Heat

Students with concealed handgun licenses could soon carry guns on Texas college campuses.

More than a dozen state senators have signed on to Senate Bill 182, also known as the  “Campus Personal Protection Act.”

The bill’s primary author, Senator Brian Birdwell,said the bill is about preserving the 2nd Amendment.

“This affords CHL holders, one of the most lawful group of citizens in our state, to be able exercise that 2nd amendment right to go on to the campus of higher learning to be able defend themselves and protect their right to self-preservation, God forbid, some act of evil be perpetrated,” Birdwell said.

If passed, the bill would allow CHL holders to bring concealed weapons onto public universities. Private universities could choose to go gun-free.

“It does respect the private property rights of the private institutions, and they have the opportunities to opt-out of the requirements,” Birdwell said. “So we do want to respect the private institutions private property rights.”

The bill also gives some say to universities on where students can and cannot bring their concealed weapons.

    I myself see no problems with it myself.. One honest citizen on scene with a legal weapon could do a lot to stop senseless killings by crazy SOBs with a weapon..

    Not to many yrs back there was a roving group who had gone into several Burger Kings and McDonald’s from Ca to Texas shooting up innocent people in the stores eating .. Cops had been looking for them for several weeks and states . They rolled into a West Texas McDonald’s and tried to shoot the place up then two armer guys in there eating happy meals ended their killing spree .. As long as I’m armed I have no fear of anyone anywhere also armed and if they try to harm me or anyone around me their life will be totally messed up .. Or maybe myself will be messed up but I’ll have an equal chance ..

    I took my now wife to Va once several yrs ago she is from N.Y we stopped one Sunday morn at a Aunt Sara’s pancake house two guys walked in with pistols strapped to their hips in holsters my wife was all up set bout the fact people could walk around strapped and was like how do they get permits to carry a gun like that I laughed and said well here in Va they do not need a permit to carry openly just to carry Concealed . She was I’m nervous I said well I’m not I had mine also under my coat . But I added guess who will not get messed with in there today (:

    Guns do nothin its just the idiots with guns that do harm.. I stay strapped myself I go to get gas I Carry heat with me.. I go for grocies I am armed .. I go to a movie I’m armed to con a phrase I pitty the fool who tries to shoot up the place I’m in..

    Add me to the list too! If I’m awake, I’m packin’. Hell, in the shower, I keep my squirt gun handy. But seriously, it gives me great comfort to see that so many law abiding citizens are carrying. I back you up, you back me up. And we all stay TRAINED, and thinking SHARP, so as not to create a “wild west” type indescriminate shooting that would arm the left with evidence against carrying.

    Stay safe, stay trained, stay smart, and stay HOT!

    May God bless us all.
