    It's good to allow guns on campus, IMO. But overall, it's not really going to do anything one way or the other.

    It will save lives, and just might prevent some woman from being raped.

    I doubt it will save many lives. The real world outcome of this isn't going to be much of anything. We allow concealed weapons on my campus, it's pretty much a non-factor. I'm willing to let anyone who wants to the ability to protect themselves, including carrying guns. But end of the day, not many students are going to do so; and if there were another mass shooting like Virginia or something, well you gotta to have one of those students with a gun in the proximity of the criminal and the fortitude to draw and fire before being taken out. Can it happen? Sure, but it's just not going to be highly likely. You're not really going to promote nor prevent school shootings. They're already relatively rare events and you'd need a right place at the right time sort of scenario for a student to stop one.

    The individual level, sure you'd probably have some better defense if people choose to exercise their rights. But you just don't see many students doing so.

    Some of the highlights from the comments section that I found particularly entertaining.

    just who do think is p*ssing all over the 2nd amendment???

    you can have all the guns you want... nobody has stopped you and your kind from being as violent and angry as you want...

    just keep your guns locked up where they can't hurt anyone.
    the NRA and republican toadies are the only ones that believe that this is a "self-defense" measure... the lies, lies, lies, that "only criminals will have guns" is pure crapola and only foools fall for that garbage anymore...
    guns are violent,
    people with guns do violent acts,
    the more guns the more violence...
    So now the wimpy crybaby Republicans get to carry guns in public places? These candyass pacifier sucking babies need protection from what?

    Why don't all you pus__y Republicans stay home with mama since you are so afraid to go out in public with out your gun. I guess owning a gun is their attempt to make up for short comings in other areas, if you know what I mean.

    Can't wait for the first story about a professor getting shot/killed over a failing grade...stayed tuned folks, film at 11.

    the republican smokescreen of "criminals will get you" if you don't carry your gun is pure manipulation for getting NRA money and to get morons (like yourself) to vote repukelikkklan...

    One more reason to never set foot in Texas. No good can come of this. Just wait, we'll be reading something terrible in the news before long. There's nothing to hunt on a college campus, so these guns are meant to kill people. And they will.
    Yep...a hand gun falling out of some kid's back pack hitting the floor and killing another student is what I see happening.

    It's about time. I don't know how many times I sat in class thinking to myself, "I could really use a gun right now".

    In Texas, we don't have many home invasions. Criminals know there's a very likely chance that they encounter a homeowner loaded for bear, and with our Castle laws, the shooter won't even be bothered with a court appearance.

    A TON of people here have their concealed-weapon license, and I assure you, they'll use it. A few people in every buidling will be carrying, and someone with bad intentions might think twice, and if they don't, they'll be gunned down far sooner than before.

    In Colorado, we have plenty of the same laws, including Castle laws of our own. Tons of people here have concealed weapon license (which I think is complete horse****, shouldn't need to obtain a CCW, but that's another thread all together). We've even allowed guns on our campus for WELL longer than y'all down there. Students don't really carry them. Do some? Hell yeah. But it's a minority. That's the real world application and will eventually stabalize to that (I can see a big surge at the beginning and then slowly dying down to some equalibrium point over the years), even in Texas. You ain't got nothing special down there. Texas...thinking they're first at this or something.

    Re: Texas Senate approves guns in college classrooms

    I approve of allowing guns on college campuses and in class rooms. As a college student I would feel safer with armed peers versus unarmed peers and armed maniacs.
