Keep Concealed Carry Off Campus
With the recent rise in shootings, Texas lawmakers are looking to make out of touch changes to “prevent” events like the Newtown massacre from happening here in Texas. Senator Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury), author of SB 182, and other Republicans in Austin are pushing a change to the concealed carry law; allowing students, staff, and faculty with a concealed carry license to carry their firearms on the premises of public institutions of higher learning (private institutions can consult with students on this issue). As students we must stand up to prevent this alarming legislation. Take a moment to tell our lawmakers that universities are not places to carry guns, but cultivate learning and the future leaders of tomorrow.
