    SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) - Texas State University has become the first college in the state to endorse carrying concealed handguns on campus.

    After students and faculty shared their views on the issue during a forum the week before, the Associated Student Government at the university voted Monday to endorse legalizing carrying licensed concealed handguns on Texas college campuses.

    “This is something you never would have seen two years ago, when most people still believed that legalizing campus carry would somehow enable drunk kids to carry guns at keg parties," said W. Scott Lewis, Texas legislative director for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus . "The students at Texas State should be commended for educating themselves on a complex issue that has been completely misrepresented by gun control activists and certain elements of the mainstream media.”

    The endorsement from the sixth-largest university - with more than 32,500 students - in the state came by a vote of 24-10, becoming the first postsecondary institution in Texas to pass a resolution endorsing what's known as “campus carry.”

    That's awesome. Especially after what happened earlier this fall. If students with their CHL were allowed to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights, as well as those given by the state, then we would be safer on campus. Unfortunately, I don't see any Oregon or Washington schools adopting this mentality though.

    Technically Oregon does.
    Schools may think they have authority over this and may expel a student caught carrying but you could fight it in court.

    Yes, I'm certainly aware of that. But being that I am a student, and possess a CHL, if I were to be made at school, I don't have the means to hire a lawyer. And, there was a student at the same school who was carrying and was expelled and if I remember correctly, tried to fight it in court but was unsuccessful. :confused:

    If you don't mind me asking, what school? I haven't seen anything about chemeketa at least banning concealed carry. I could of course be wrong though.
