    Texas Poised to Pass Bill Allowing Guns on Campus
    Monday, February 21, 2011
    By Jim Vertuno, Associated Press

    Austin, Texas (AP) - Texas is preparing to give college students and professors the right to carry guns on campus, adding momentum to a national campaign to open this part of society to firearms.

    More than half the members of the Texas House have signed on as co-authors of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns. The Senate passed a similar bill in 2009 and is expected to do so again. Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who sometimes packs a pistol when he jogs, has said he's in favor of the idea.

    Texas has become a prime battleground for the issue because of its gun culture and its size, with 38 public universities and more than 500,000 students. It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a broad-based law. Colorado gives colleges the option and several have allowed handguns.

    This would be awesome. I wonder if this ever passes anywhere if it would be limited to current students only, or would it then make it legal for any CHL holder to carry?

    Well in the past Rick Perry said he believed a CHL holder should be allowed to carry anywhere in the state. I am wondering if we are going to see another open carry bill. Last session it came up but they said they didn't think most people were ready for it yet. In the aftermath of the Tucson incident it might not be considered a good time for it.

    The only problem is our state Reps only meet every 2 years. So if it doesn't make it this go around, we'll have to wait longer.

    No one is safe when they are meeting. Better if that was once in 4 years.

    Check the Arizona news. We just passed it in the local legislature yesterday. The Boston Globe calls it "perilous". I guess all the campus serial killers will have to move up to Boston in order to safely execute law abiding tax payers. It's been sent along to Gov Jan Brewer for approval and if she signs it into law we'll be the second state to do so joining Utah. This may in fact cause Lady GaGa to cancel her "Western States" Tour. Well if you want to make a southwest omelette I reckon you'll have to break some eggs. And you can forget about the Mormon Tabernacle Choir backing her up on her recent hit "Judas", too.
