Spend 34 seconds for Concealed Carry on Campus

Hey guys, I just called the Texas Senate Committee for State Affairs:
Clerk: Cindy Hodges, (512) 463-0380
http://www.senate.state.tx.us/75r/se...70/c570_77.htm

You have probably heard about Senate Bill 1164 which would legalize CHL carrying on college campuses.

“If it does make it to the Senate floor we also expect it to pass,” said Katie Kasprzack, a spokeswoman for the grass-roots gun group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. “We’re hearing that the Senate State Affairs (committee) may let the bill die. That’s going to be the biggest hurdle.”
I didn't like the sound of that, so I called the Committee. I simply told the young man who answered the phone I supported S.B. 1164. Took 34 seconds. Would have taken less, but he misheard me:
Quote:
"S.B. 1154?"
"No, S.B. 1164, CARRYING OF HANDGUNS BY LICENSE HOLDERS ON CERTAIN CAMPUSES"
So please consider using a half minute of your time to let these politicians know we are watching them. Thank you!

I've heard the bill was ammended such that private colleges are now NOT covered. Many presidents of private schools went to Austin to lobby against it.

Anybody have more details.

So for us that work at Target U., thanks to those lobbying and those who bought into it.

I heard it was the famous private property rant (which is BS and just cover for the liability lawyers).

I guess they don't care about the safety of their students.
