Despite what some politicians and pundits have said, campus carry has been a long shot ever since it was first introduced in 2009. It has always had strong support in both houses of the Texas Legislature, but it's an extremely controversial bill, and the system is stacked against controversial bills. Particularly in Texas, it's much easier to kill a bill than to pass a bill--one well-placed opponent can undercut 180 supporters.

Open carry is in the same boat, but it's a more recent comer to the Texas political stage, so it's at an even greater disadvantage.

With that said, anything can happen in the latter part of the session. Deals are cut, amendments are offered, and wheels are greased in unpredictable ways. The proverbial fat lady doesn't sing for another eight weeks.

Thank you. I'm looking forward to hearing "the rest of the story."
I sincerely apologize to anybody I offended by suggesting the Second Amendment also applies to The People who don't work for the government.
