    Looks like the legislature is going to give this another try.

    Durn right it's a good idea. I sent my representative a letter last year telling him I hope he gets behind it, and he replied that he was a cosponsor ! I'm sure he'll support this one too.

    When my son goes to college, and turns 21, I want him to be able to protect himself in a very vulnerable setting like that.

    I had a guy tell me the other day, that he didn't want all those "damned " kids running around campus with guns.

    I told him, that to conceal carry, only 21 year olds and older would be able to legally. Of the 21 year olds, not all would even have the interest to carry. Which is ok. I said, there probably wouldn't be as many guns present as he thought.

    He thought a minute, and said really? I never looked at it that way.

    I'm all for it. 1966 UT campus it was civilian suppressing fire which helped hold the gunman pinned down while law enforcement was able to get up the tower to him!

    I'm convinced that if a handful of students at VA. Tech had been able to carry a gun that day, it would have ended with a substantially lower body count.

    I hope the legislature gets behind this. The community college I go to had a armed robbery on 11/30 at about 9:30 pm at one of the bus stops. Just the thought of a "victum" carring my of stopped the crime

    Go to it! Representative Joe Driver of Garland has been the major supporter of this since it started out. If I lived up there I'd vote for this guy.

    Since age retired me, I rely on teaching part-time at local community colleges. I am 100 percent for it. Our local college PD is very professional and very alert, but they can't be everywhere at once.

    IMHO, the campus shooters in the past few years did what they did in part because they knew they'd have little or no resistance. Would fewer students have been killed at the Univ of Va? I don't know that, but I suspect that a few armed students and faculty would have fought back and perhaps saved some lives. In the first 7 months of 2010, the DOJ reports 35 rapes per 1000 female students nationwide.

    Maybe if Texas can set a precedent, the rest of the country will follow along.
