Texas Campus Concealed Carry Advances

posted on April 3, 2015

Licensed right-to-carry permit holders in the Lone Star State will be a step closer to carrying firearms on college campuses if State Rep. Allen Fletcher’s HB 937 passes the full House. The bill is similar to a Senate measure already approved in mid-March.

While heads of many state colleges and universities continue to make the same tired arguments about the danger of guns on campuses, Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp understands that the bill only applies to law-abiding adults who already hold carry permits and who already carry firearms when not on campus. “(We trust) teachers and students to live and work responsibly under the same laws at the university as they do at home.” Well said. The overwhelmingly positive record of right-to-carry permit holders over several decades proves his point.
