    The student in the video says he doesn't think they should allow guns in the midst of students...what does he think BG's do?

    Hey Matt...nice calm presentation...

    Hopefully this may cause a nationwide breakthrough, just like CCW took off back in the mid 90's.

    Well presented Matt, hopefully things work out for you and all the other law abiding students in TX.

    Well done, Matt...

    Nicely done Matt. Well spoken, well dressed, you projected a great face of the CCW holder. Calm, cool, rational. Very well done.

    I know I would feel better knowing that there are students who carry and would be able to fight back in a VA Tech type of situation.

    You know, it amazes me that these pin heads like the man in the video who just doesn't see why anyone would need to or want to carry on a campus (never mind the fact that the worst mass shooting has happened on a college campus ) won't see the reality of the world we live in.

    And, since the cowards that carry out these mass shootings like the nut at VA Tech almost always turn their weapon on themselves as soon as they no longer just have unarmed victims to slaughter. When the police show up or someone they thought was a sheep is armed and fights back, they kill themselves. So I would think that students carrying concealed would be a HUGE deterrent to future mass shootings.

    Very Well Done! A positive, quality presentation.

    I'm with TN Mike, I don't see how those opposed can keep thier anti position after such acts like VT, and knowing the facts.........

    Maybe a better approach would be to not allow BGs in the midst of students . . . oh, wait . . .

    Ditto on the nice presentation!

    Well done Matt.

    The other student in the video, he is destined to be one of those who can not think past the tip of his nose. Like all the other grass-eaters, reaction to events is all they are capable of. They can not grasp the fact that an individual intent on doing harm is going to do it, regardless if they have a permit (gods forbid) or not. A rule or a law is not going to stop them.

    It's like he said, when you use it. Allowing concealed carry on campus will not change when you can use the handgun. The opposing student really wants it not accessible. As soon as that student leaves campus he is exposing himself to people that have concealed weapons. Isn't there a buffer zone (1000ft) around the school for no firearms? That would include Northgate if so. When I was there in the 80's we never had any shootings or issues with weapons that I recall.

    For CHL holders it is okay to keep your weapon inside your vehicle (in a school zone), but one cannot carry it on their person on campus. So, is it okay for students that live on campus to keep their weapons in their cars if they are licensed?
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    I am always amazed at how people think; just because they can't handle stress or a situation that everyone else is the same...great job Matt...

    Best of luck on the new bill! It would be a major break through.
