As a Virginia Tech graduate, as well as a graduate student here in Colorado, I'd like to respond to this, as your answer has touched more than one of my stomping grounds.
And why? For no good reason?Last month, just as state senators were ready to send a bill to allow handguns on campus to a final vote, University of Texas (UT) Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa wrote a public letter to legislators saying the gun bill was a bad idea.
Is this the same liberal staff that averages 55% on standardized immigration tests with respect to our nation's history and Constitution?And he had the public support of both the UT Faculty Counsel and Texas A&M University Faculty Senate.
[quote]The result: the bill stalled in the Texas senate, lacking the two-thirds of votes needed to get it on to the floor.
The result: Texas remains clutched in the hands of the Constitutionally illiterate, stripped of their basic Constitutional rights to defend and protect themselves, others, and their property.
That sounds like good news! What's the status?But Sen. Jeff Wentworth, the Texas Republican who authored the bill, was persistent, and yesterday he managed to get it tacked on to a piece of education finance reform legislation which passed the state senate.
