A lot of people seem to be "jumping the gun" here. The proposal would only apply to "concealed handgun license holders". In Texas you already need a license to carry a handgun. To obtain a license the individual must be over 21(an age at which most college students will have graduated by), and demonstrate handgun proficiency/safety training. Those with criminal records, mental illness and/or chemical dependency are ineligible.

See criteria for a Texas carry permit here http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/InternetForms/Forms/CHL-16.pdf

I've a feeling that there are more than a few students past the age of 21 and there are always those visitors, parents, older brother and sisters coming by and the occasionial Frat Party where alumni come back to visit. Nothing like mixing a gun with a drink or two.

Santa Anna, you should have tried harder! Texas under Perry highlights the disadvantage of allowing the kind of democracy Mexico frowns on!.

More death coming soon to a university in Texas near you. Giddy up. Bet they won't allow guns in the state Capitol. Curious.

How soon we forget. So much for the good guy with a gun myth.

Charles Joseph Whitman was an engineering student and former United States Marine, who killed seventeen people and wounded thirty-two others in a mass shooting rampage located in and around the Tower of the University of Texas in Austin on the afternoon of August 1, 1966. Three people were shot and killed inside the university's tower and eleven others were murdered after Whitman fired at random from the 28th-floor observation deck of the Main Building.

He had a reputation among his fellow Marines as an exemplary Marine.

And the minute he started shooting innocent people he became a nutcase. But you liberals always seem to think we are somehow capable of creating a "precrime prevention force" like the movies.

The R's don't want college kids to be able to vote, but they want them to carry guns. Lincoln favored ballots over bullets. The Republicans have become the American Nutsy Party.

The Texas House of Representatives should be GIVING a" final approval to a proposal" to make sure state inspectors go and do there jobs by checking out regulations that caused that fire!

This is a good news for the Mexican cartels.

Along with drugs, they can sell guns too.... and get US citizenship through Dream Act...

Why? The ATF and DoJ and "Fast and Furious" have nothing to do with Texas Uni

Guns, drugs, people and money have been going back and forth for a very long time now.

I wish you could. If you trust people to carry guns on the street, and now (possibly) in schools, why can these same people not be trusted to carry into state buildings?

Or into the NRA convention!
07:54 PM on 05/07/2013
Incorrect. Concealed weapons were allowed in the convention, just like any other lawful place.

Incorrect. Concealed firearms were allowed in the convention just like any other lawful area in Texas. Thousands of guns going in and out unnoticed, yet no one shoots up the place? Probably the safest place in the world during that weekend. Imagine that.
