Texas Still Not Ok with Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus! Why?

CHLonCampus1      “Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property…Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them” – THOMAS PAINE,1775

Laws Concerning Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus in Texas still don’t reflect articles written about Texas stepping up to the plate an allowing students their God given right to self defense. Seems Texas has left its students to the wolves. According to www.ArmedCampuses.org (which is an ANTI-Gun Organization)Texan students are only aloud to keep a gun in their vehicles for self defense. Not on their person without: “written regulations or written authorization of the institution.”

“According to the Texas Penal Code (Tex. Penal Code § 46.03(a) and Tex. Penal Code § 46.03(f) an individuals are prohibited from intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly possessing or going with a firearm on the physical premises of a school or educational institution, any grounds or building on which an activity sponsored by a school or educational institution is being conducted, or in a passenger transportation vehicle of a school or educational institution, whether the school or educational institution is public or private, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution. Concealed weapons permit holders are subject to this prohibition.”

 

Which is not going to happen, unless your a chl2nephew of someone very important. But even though the stateConcealed-Carry-Sign of Texas wants you to die from an active shooter in the classroom… there are exception for keeping a firearm in your vehicle. Kinda.

NOTE – EXCEPTION FOR GUNS IN VEHICLES

On June 14, 2013, Governor Perry signed into law SB 1907 , which states that an institution of higher education or private or independent institution of higher education may not adopt or enforce any rule, regulation, or other provision or take any other action, including posting notice under Section 30.06, Penal Code, prohibiting or placing restrictions on the storage or transportation of a firearm or ammunition in a locked, privately owned or leased motor vehicle by a person, including a student enrolled at that institution, who holds a license to carry a concealed handgun and lawfully possesses the firearm or ammunition:

(1)  on a street or driveway located on the campus of the institution; or

(2)  in a parking lot, parking garage, or other parking area located on the campus of the institution.

The Act takes effect September 1, 2013.

So almost for years after these article in the Sun Times and Star Telegram were written, Texas still says no

GirlCHL1 to students wanting to protect their lives and the lives of other students from doing so lawfully. Was it all Political fluff? Looks like it to me. Read for yourself…

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.

It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a law. Supporters argue that gun violence on campuses, such as the shootings at Northern Illinois in 2008, show that the best defense against a gunman is students who can shoot back. AP

AUSTIN — 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.

Texas has become a prime battleground for the issue because of its gun culture and its size, with 38 public universities and more than 500,000 students. It would become the second state, after Utah, to pass such a broad-based law. Colorado gives colleges the option, and several have allowed handguns……

 

………Wentworth said he heard the “blood on the streets” warnings when Texas first passed the concealed handgun law. “They said we’d have shootouts at every intersection,” he said. “None of that has happened.”

How many more Virginia Tech shootings will it take for people to wake up and take responsibility for their VTechshooterown security? The Virginia Tech shooting took place on April 16, 2007 where gunman “Seung-Hui Cho, a senior at Virginia Tech, shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 others in two separate attacks, approximately two hours apart, before committing suicide (another six people were injured escaping from classroom windows).”
The Only response to bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun!
We need more good guys & gals with guns. Especially on Campus where rape stats are through the roof because women are not able and do not GUN_concealed_campus_signsknow how to defend themselves. They have been sent off into a world with no direction to fend for themselves. Parents should be ashamed.
According to www.OneInFourUSA.org:
“One in four college women report surviving rape or attempted rape at some point in their lifetime. These are anonymous reports on multi-campus surveys sampling thousands of college students nationwide (Fisher, Cullen & Turner, 2000; Tjaden & Thoennes, 2006). This rate has remained the same since studies in the 1980s (Koss, Gidycz, & Wisniewki, 1987).”
