Yesterday’s shooting incident on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin has renewed the debate on whether or not students who are licensed to carry a concealed handgun should be allowed to bring their weapons on campus.
According to all the Houston media outlets, most of the students who have been questioned in the last two days are opposed to having students carry guns on campus.
Faculty members are almost unanimous in their opposition to guns on campus. What else would you expect from a bunch of pussy professors. They believe that it would make campuses less safe and lead to an increase in shooting incidents. One University of Houston professor expressed the widely held view that in a shooting incident, it would be chaos if students were to draw their guns because the cops would not be able to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys.
The Vice-President of the Houston Police Officers Union does not buy that chaos crap and believes colleges would be safer if licensed students were to carry their guns on campus.
Back when states started licensing citizens to carry concealed handguns, the chicken-little gun control crowd screamed that it would be a shootout at the OK corral and lead to an increase in violent crime. Well, they were wrong, dead wrong! In every state where licensing laws have been enacted there has been a decrease in violent crime.
I am personally in favor of allowing students with a concealed carry license to bring their guns on college campuses. I agree with those who believe that it would make colleges safer.

Interesting idea. I'm as pro gun as the next guy, but I'm just not sure about allowing college kids....and I emphasise the word "kids" that opportunity.

I just don't think the maturity level is high enough for most people in that age group to be packing.

I could be wrong...
