Texas 2A News ::: Concealed handguns on campus?

I'll have to side with the Second Amendment here. Yeah, a psycho shot people with a gun from the tower here in Austin, but it was a packin' private citizen who brought him down.

AMARILLO, TEXAS -- Over the last couple of years there has been an argument over whether college students should be able to carry concealed guns on campus.

More recently after the University of Texas shooting, the questions have come up again. So should college students should be able to carry their firearms on campus?

The West Texas A&M student body president is asking is it panic or just a long time coming? "I think that there is a place and time for guns or for weapons in general and I believe personally that weapons are a good thing, on the other hand to have weapons on campus could increase the risks of the students on campus," said Tim Vela, the student body president.

Some students think that having their gun on campus would help prevent casualties in situations like the Virginia Tech tragedy.

"Well when you go through the process of getting a concealed hand gun license you go through a course of conflict resolution in deciding when to use your fire arm because that is the last line of defense you wanna use, if someone is stupid enough to do that first they shouldn't have a license in the first place. If the federal government gives you a license you should be allowed to carry where ever," said Jay Gurley, a WTAMU student.
