Texas May Allow Concealed Weapons on Campus
As discussed this morning on McMornings with McWilley the Texas House of Representatives is looking to allow students and professors concealed handguns on campus.
AUSTIN, Texas — 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 the members of the Texas House have signed on as 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 again. Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who sometimes packs a pistol when he jogs, has said he’s in favor of the idea.

I can see how this can be a good thing and a bad thing. The good; students and professors could protect themselves against suicidal/crazed students looking to hurt others. The bad; accidents with guns happen and people can do dumb things. I was a college student at one time and I did a lot of bad things.
What’s your thought on the matter? Do you think it’s a good idea or a bad idea? Should both students and professors be aloud to carry concealed guns?
