Guns on Campus Bill Stalling in the Senate
Legislation under consideration at the State Capitol would make it legal to carry guns on college and university campuses. One of the bill’s sponsors, State Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio, failed to get enough votes to bring it up for debate Monday. Senator Wentworth says he’s one vote short to bring the bill to the floor. Those in favor of the measure say it would give people the right to protect themselves on campus. Opponents are concerned it would escalate campus violence. You can read the full text of the Senate bill here.
