Gun Control

AUSTIN (AP) – The contentious push to allow Texas college students to carry firearms on campus has won final passage in the House.

The bill would allow students who are 21 or older — and have a concealed weapons permit — to bring their handguns to class unless a university chooses to forbid what has become known as “campus carry.” Emotions flared over a similar proposal in 2011 before the measure was ultimately defeated.

The House on Monday easily gave final approval to this latest attempt by a 102-41 vote. The bill now moves to the Senate.

Under the bill carried by Republican state Rep. Allen Fletcher, colleges and universities can still choose to prohibit guns. But a student caught with one on campus would not be breaking the law.
