Texas Campus Carry Gains Momentum by Robert Farago | Feb 22, 2011 | 4 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments Steve says: February 22, 2011 at 22:34 Wow, a CNN piece that’s fairly balanced. I hope that bill passes in Texas, and in my own state where I am a grad student at a public university. It’s a long walk to my car at night and people get mugged every now and then in that area; it’s hard to stand up for yourself if you have to leave your gun at home. I know there are a million reasons to support such legislation, both practical and philosophical, but a real self defense issue is my immediate concern.

This is one of the first political issues I’ve felt strongly about because it effects me and my family. I am currently attending a Texas college and my little brother will be out of high school and in college in the next few years, as such I am rooting for this and looking forward to the knowledge that if something were to go down I, or someone else in the room, could take action. As long as they have a CHL I don’t have a problem with someone carrying a gun in my class; if the law passes I know I will.
