obscenities compounded

Texas is preparing to give college students and professors the right to carry guns on campus, adding momentum to a national campaign to open this part of society to firearms.

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."

Governor Rick Perry of Texas has fun with guns!

Hmmm.  Somewhere near Texas, recently.  Something unpleasant.  What was it? Hmmm...

A syllabus revision I never thought would be necessary: No guns allowed in class.
