Texas Campus Concealed Carry Advances

posted on May 28, 2015

Senate Bill 11 was passed by the Texas House just minutes before it was due to expire. Despite intentional delays by opponents, the measure was approved by more than a 2-to-1 margin, and adds dorms, classrooms and cafeterias to the areas where licensed adults can carry their concealed defensive weapons. Gov. Greg Abbott has committed to sign it.

It’s interesting to note that campus carry is already legal and has not, as the likes of Representative Ramon Romero predicted, been “a horrible idea.” Adding a few building types seems unlikely to foment new disaster: Relatively few students can carry due to age limitations, and other persons who wish to (like staff and faculty) must still be adults and pass the rigorous NICS background check. Thirty-plus years of CCW data prove the vast majority of these folks can be trusted.
