As a staff member for UT for over 20 years now, I did my part to help get campus carry passed.

Here's my favorite line:

"The issue here isn’t about what CHL holders will do if there is another gunman on campus or how Tommy or Tammy will feel when taking a test and thinking Johnny has a gun on him – the issue is about responsible citizens that work in a university setting, being afforded the same rights to defend and protect themselves that are already extended to those working outside the university."

It can't be used to advance bills that originated in the Senate. So in order for this to help us out, we still have to get HB 750 out of Calendars.



Correct

See number 2 here at the link provided below

Yes I know it says "Here are 3 things you can do"

I know it was written by a UT Grad (Doctoral) Student

I know the 3 things are numbered:

1
2
2


so see both number 2s

(Looks like Mr Woods really likes doing "Number 2" ... I'd say more, but ... 13 year old daughter forum rule)

But, disregarding all that, see what they are doing by examining all his "number 2s" especially the one closest to the bottom.

Make the calls/faxes/e-mails ...

Thank you for letting me know your support for HB 750 which passed out of the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee favorably. HB 750 was considered in the House Calendars Committee on April 21 and does not yet have a consensus. As a Co-author of HB 750, I will continue to work with my colleagues on getting this legislation scheduled for consideration on the House floor. Once again, thank you for contacting me and please let me know whenever I may be of assistance to you.
Regards,
Jim Keffer
State Representative

And the house threw us to the wolves.
