Texas A&M Student Senate To Discuss CHL Concealed Carry On Campus

Student Senate will present a bill Wednesday night that calls on the Texas A&M University System and the Texas State Legislature to allow anyone with a valid concealed handgun license to carry a handgun on campus and within buildings.

The bill claims that the school is not safe merely because it is labeled as gun-free, as it doesn’t hinder others who wish to cause harm from illegally bringing weapons on to campus. It further claims that University Police are reactive, rendering them ineffective in protecting students and faculty from the multitude of crimes that occur on and off campus.

According to the bill, students, faculty and guests — in accordance with the Texas Penal Code — who have a CHL (concealed handgun license) are currently allowed to carry on campus, but cannot take their weapons into buildings, which adheres to University policy.
