    If it had happened here, it would have been last month. Shame either way.

    The real answer is - future democrat voter + doesn't want to PO any voting block (or cell block as the case may be).

    So that explains it... Was in Houston that weekend visiting my kid and went to the shooting range Saturday. Thought it was strange how many families where there that morning. About 5 sets of parents and their younger college age kids shopping for compact pistols and renting different models to try out.

    "First Amendment right to academic freedom"... :-k ... Must be something that only exists in their classrooms.

    There is no academic freedom on most campuses, hasn't been for decades. If you're not a "progressive" then you're both a regressive and unwelcome/unemployed.

    Open carry on campus is banned here, so we'll never know if the ability is being taken advantage of or not. But I can say, blood is not flowing through the halls as some predicted.

    The main problem is going to be little man's syndrome. I'm pretty sure that many of my former colleagues would have simply held it against the student personally if they were told by authority figures that they could not do what they wanted to in the first instance.

    Yes we will. Word will get out somehow that certain students are carrying concealed pistols.

    I know I'd wear an NRA (or Georgia Carry) hat or button if I were attending college in Texas, to show my support for the human right of self-defense.

    They'd then have a good idea that I was armed for my safety and theirs.

    :-k

    Would requiring licensed carriers to openly wear "Concealed Carry" badges while carrying on campus be a reasonable and common sense compromise?

    Thank goodness Gov. Nathan Deal vetoed Georgia Campus Carry, or we'd be having the carnage that Texas is having in their colleges and universities. [/sarcasm]

    I think its rather funny that folks expected a politician named Deal to be governed by principles. :roll:
