    Texas Poised to Pass Concealed Carry on College Campuses


    Texas Poised to Pass Bill Allowing Guns on Campus

    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 of the members of the Texas House are co-authorsof 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, says he supports the idea. Texas is one of about a dozen states considering the idea and has become a prime battleground because of its gun culture and size. It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a broad-based law. Colorado gives colleges the option, and several allow handguns.

    It'a already allowed in Utah, and Colorado. Can high schools be far behind? (Oh, I forgot. Some of them already have guns in schools.)
