Texas Lawmakers Approve Bill to Allow Guns on College Campuses

Texas lawmakers have approved a bill that allows license holders to carry concealed firearms in most college and university buildings in the state.
The governor is expected to allow the bill to become law. The approval comes after fierce opposition from college and university leaders and from outnumbered Texas Democrats.
The regulation will allow concealed-carry permit holders, or CHL licensees, in the state to carry loaded firearms on university and college campuses. Schools may create gun-free zones, but establishing such provisions is complex at best.
Many Democrats and advocacy groups have fought so-called “campus carry” legislation for years in the Texas legislature.
