    Man I hope this passes. After VT, I remember looking around in my classes thinking if someone came into this classroom right now with a gun, my class mates and I would not stand a chance. I just makes sense to let law abiding adults carry in class, just like they already do outside of campus.

    My TX senator and rep have signed on as coauthors of these bills, ( ) so now I'm just trying to drum up support in other parts of the state.
