It is currently being discussed in Texas legislature........

......whether to allow concealed carry on campus. You can keep a gun in your car but cannot take it into a building according to current law. College campus' are prohibited presently to concealed handgun licensees.

At the University where I work a recent poll showed an even split among staff and students for/against concealed carry, but the high-ranking administrators are anti-gun and have said they will not allow concealed carry on campus if they have the power to prevent it from happening. Some faculty would like to be allowed to carry to protect themselves from students but then don't want the students to be allowed to carry. Many faculty are liberal and don't want anyone to have guns, except the police. Most of the University police are at least 50-100 pounds overweight and I would be more afraid of them having a heart-attack during a stressful situation than I am about a potential shooting.
