More than half of the members of the Texas House are co-authors
of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns.
The Senate passed a similar bill in 2009 and is expected to do so
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
It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a broad-based law.
Colorado gives colleges the option, and several allow handguns.
Here is a photo of one of Charles Whitman's sixteen dead victims. Not one of the thirty-two wounded. One of the sixteen dead.
"Charles Joseph Whitman (June 24, 1941 – Aug. 1, 1966) was a student at the University of Texas at Austin and a former Marine who killed 16 people and wounded 32 others during a shooting rampage on and around the university's campus on Aug. 1, 1966."
A syllabus revision I never thought would be necessary: No guns allowed in class.
