    Hope campus carry passes. I'm a college student starting in the fall at night. The school, Lamar Univ., isn't in the best part of town.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    The regular legislative session ended several weeks ago. Whatever was done or not done has been done. Its over till 18 months from now.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I take "continuing education" courses but decided not to take my firearm and leave it in my car. Even though we have the castle law, the campus carry being a felony made me too nervous. I need to find time to go through all the info just given. Thanks for putting all of that up. I appreciate it DC.

    I have a friend who was helping push the campus carry but they where promoted to a much better job. Our loss. They were very good at what they did.

    Unless Perry adds them to the "call", they are not going to be considered. Only those items added by the governor to a special session can be considered. Unless he calls another special session to consider these items, they are not going to be voted on. Perry needed to walk the walk after taking the talk, but failed miserable. He did not add those bills to the special session even after thousand of letters and phone calls. I'll never vote for him again.
