Looks Like Texas Is About To Allow Concealed Carry On Campus

This appears to be a Associated Press news story, so I am going to only copy a paragraph:
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.
Packs a pistol when he jogs--and shot a coyote that was threatening his dog a while back.  I think this is generally a good idea.  We could fix the mental health system instead, but that would fix way too many other problems as well, so that isn't allowed.

Clayton,

You should have heard the squealy-media when Perry shot the coyote. You'd have thought he shot an opponent in the general election.

Things are pretty good here in the Lonestar State compared to most. Our decade and a half experience with CHL has led to an eye-opening among the general population that "blood in the streets scenarios" don't happen except in the imaginations and fantasies of hoplophobes.

I think many have finally figured out that putting up gun-free-zone signs doesn't keep criminals away. The Colton Tooley incident on the UT campus in September opened a lot of eyes.
