Cornwall ON – Hand guns. I know, I take heat as I think they should be banned except for extreme circumstances or for use in secure facilities for people that need to have things go bang and really blow stuff up.
Now, semi-shockingly, the state of Texas is about to actually allow guns for students and teachers at College and Universities.
I kid you not. I do not jest. After all of the school and public shootings the government of the State of Texas looks like it’s going to thumbs up this utter insanity.
Maybe the school bookstores will carry a selection of fine shooting irons even?
More than half the members of the Texas House have signed on as co-authors of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns. The Senate passed a similar bill in 2009 and is expected to do so again. Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who sometimes packs a pistol when he jogs, has said he’s in favor of the idea.
So is this all about votes and living up to the ideal of being a Texan? Is that the reason to allow a law that surely will result in death to young students? What do you think my fellow Canadians? You can post your comments below.
