Texas Senate passes concealed-carry for college students; bill is not law just yet

The Houston Chronicle is reporting the passage in the state Senate of a measure that would allow college students to carry concealed weapons on college campuses; private institutions would be able to opt out. Students would be required to be over the age of 21 and to possess a concealed-carry license.

The House has until midnight Tuesday to pass the measure into law.

Totally sweet. [/end Cartman] One step closer to my dream of an open-carry society.

Wow, college students in Texas can conceal carry? THAT is impressive! I truly believe that if this were an option that we would see FAR less of the Virginia Tech-style shootings across the nation. Way to go, Texas.

Well, it's not law just yet, but I hope the House will jump on it and pass it into law. Interestingly, the article notes that 11 other states DO currently have college concealed-carry statutes.
