Texas Senate Passes Concealed Carry on Campus Bill

Big news in Austin! Yesterday, the Texas Senate passed the bill that would allow concealed carry on university campuses in Texas. While I still have some issues with the government giving people “permission” to carry personal defense arms, I believe this is a step in the right direction that will actually protect students.

It does appear that the House retains the option to take up the bill and vote on it themselves, but they must do so by next Tuesday. If they do not do so, I think that means the bill becomes law, period.

UPDATE: It looks like it is a bit more complicated than I thought. Apparently, the bill must be read and passed in the house before becoming law and this must be done by next Tuesday. You can monitor the progress of the bill here.
