This is the stupidest fucking decision ever. It's one thing to allow armed guards on campus to protect the students, it's another to allow random licensed gun owners (let's face it, ANYONE can get a license in Texas) to carry their weapons on campus.

I know you're almost all gun nuts on this website, and don't get me wrong, I like guns too. But you all seem to forget how many students go through a mental fucking breakdown once a semester or are massively pissed off at teachers. I see it every fucking day (I'm in engineering). I wouldn't even trust those people with knives let alone guns.

Guys what the fuck. There should just be a special license to allow gun carry on campus that ONLY security personnel may have. Employ security guards, boost the economy by creating security jobs. God knows how Universities bathe in cash.

Edit: Seriously you can even give those jobs to younger veterans. Out of EVERYONE, I'm pretty sure the ones that can use those guns the best are the ones that defended the country with those guns.

Not ANYONE can get a license to carry. You have to pass a stricter background check to carry than you do to buy. And you know what all these shool shootings had in common? Nobody else had a gun. So fuck it obviously not being armed isn't working so let's try arming people and see what happens.

Also, in several cases, the shooters didn't have licences. Licences and gun free zones don't do shit in a country where guns are so commonly available.

Are you kidding me? That's social suicide. What kind of parent would send their smart kids to a school that allows guns on campus? Arm the fucking US Iraq war veterans to guard the kids. Not a student that has a mental fucking breakdown per finals.

Edit: "Not ANYONE can get a license to carry". Did you even read the fucking article? Concealed carry is allowed for anyone with a gun license. Open carry is a separate law. Everyone gets guns. Texas has incredibly loose gun license handling. It's almost impossible to find someone out of Austin that DOESN'T carry a gun.

Are you kidding me? You're going to play russian roulette and hope your kid draws faster than the other kid in the middle of class? What kind of brain-dead mentality is that?

The average individual who goes to the lengths necessary to acquire the license to carry in Texas as well as procure a gun has thought long and hard about carrying it and the possibilities of having to use that force.

These are the individuals you want doing this. Your average student at university isn't going to notice nor care that this has happened, even in Texas.

I think this is a very easy way to provide already law abiding citizens some comfort if they feel like they want to be responsible for their own actions.

Don't forget, killing people is already illegal. If a student is do mentally fragile that they would shoot someone over a disagreement I highly suspect they wouldn't bother procuring a legal firearm nor worry about whether or not they'd be violating school or state laws to bring that firearm into a classroom.

Just my opinion though and we clearly will not agree

I'm guessing you only read Voat propaganda for your opinions because most mass shooters actually had a concealed handgun permit.

Look up Michael McLendon, Omar Thornton, Pedro Vargas, Gerardo Regalado, Paul Michael Merhige, Guillermo Zarabozo, Charles Johnston, Jason Kenneth Hamilton, Kenneth Allen Keith, Ferdarius Shine, etc, etc. They all had concealed handgun permits. They all performed mass shootings. A lot of them in universities. Now we're allowing those kiddies to have a gun in their pocket.

Boost the economy by making university more expensive? I think you might want to research the broken window fallacy.

And what would special licences do when shooters will just ignore them?

Yeah, I'm sure paying the Iraq War Veteran that's now out of a job 20$/hr will definitely bankrupt the students.

But the Dean getting paid 750K/year, let's not touch that shit at all.
