Texas Concealed Carry On Campus Bill in Committee – Bill 354

Do you want your child in college to be legally armed to fight back? Should she cower and beg while the psycho takes aim and blows her brains out like at Va Tech and Fort Hood?
You decide.

Houston, Tx --( On Tuesday, March 22, SB 354 by Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio) will be heard in Senate Criminal Justice Committee.

SB 354 will stop colleges and universities from expelling student-CHLs for having their handgun on the property of their college or in their cars. It will also stop colleges and universities from terminating their faculty and staff for the same activity.

SB 354 goes on to remove the criminal penalty and allow CHL students, faculty and staff to have this option of self-defense with them in the buildings. Colleges can regulate storage for resident students and sporting events will still be off-limits.

A similar House companion, HB 750 by Rep. Joe Driver (R-Garland) was heard in House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, March 16th, and passed 5-3 along party lines after nearly six hours of testimony.

Other good bills dealing with this issue were laid out and left pending in committee include: HB 86 by Rep. David Simpson(R-Longview), HB 1167 by Rep. Van Taylor (R-Plano), HB 1356 by Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Terrell), another and final variation HB 2178 filed by Rep. Joe Driver (R-Garland). All were bills supported by TSRA.

HB 750 by Driver pushes ahead in the process to allow adult students, faculty, and staff the option of having their licensed, concealed handgun with them in college buildings and with them on the commute between school and home.

Senator Wentworth’s bill, SB 354, is likely to be close behind.
