Campus Carry Passes House, Referred to Senate Criminal Justice Committee

Time is running out.

HB 972 has passed the Texas House of Representatives and has been referred to the Senate Criminal Justice Committee. HB 972 lost some of its efficacy in committee, however it still protects the rights of licensed students to keep their weapons concealed in their locked vehicles while on campus.

Please Call Sen. John Whitmire, Chairman of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, and ask him to bring HB 972 up for a vote immediately!

When you speak with Senator Whitmire or his staff, remember that he is a Democrat. It may help to point out that the bill has an opt-out provision for both public and private universities, so all this bill really does is return control to the universities themselves.
