You Know That Frat House on Saturday Night When Everyone There is Drunk and Obnoxious?

Well, now they are gonna be drunk, obnoxious, and armed.

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 7.28.27 PMCampus Carry carried the Texas Senate 20 – 11.  Democrats unanimously voted against it.  It now goes to the Governor to sign.  I’m wondering if he’s going to sign it with little bullet hole fonts.

Here’s the catch:  private universities – where rich kids go – can opt out.  Yeah, they don’t have to do it.

I personally give it until mid November before “accidental shootings” start happening on campus with more regularity than term paper stealing.

    Damn liberals! 😉 I love me my grand-pops for his ability to place just about everything in context, including history and politics.

    Dad fought in Viet Nam, did his graduate work thanks to the GI Bill. Married man working a job or two to earn his degree, not allowed to bring his car on campus as a ‘first semester’ student.

    Three generations of veterans, me, Dad and Gramps more than a little apoplectic that the st00pid are trying to define education and campus life.

    Ammosexuals want guns on campus? Let the gun humpers join ROTC and earn the right of six years committed to carry that gun wherever their government sends them. Fly away and fight warhawks, or sit the ___ down, shut up, and eat your guns.

  2. I teach on a university campus. Since 99 percent of my students are female, and many seem to have more liberal leanings (and about half are AA), maybe I won’t have guns in my classroom. I can hope, at least.

    My kids go to U-T and I am not at all excited by this development. However I do feel that the Aggies may bear the brunt of this; guessing that many (or most) of them will be armed, what could possibly go wrong?

    Tony, thank you, but the kudos belong to my wife Jane, my mother and grandmother who “kept the home fires burning” and are the good women.

    2024? Woman named Jane either runs for Governor of Nevada, or already is Governor and is running for President?

    😀 Time is for behind every good woman ….

  6. PKM, the gun humpers (love that one) belong in the ROTC and nowhere else– that’s what “a well-regulated militia” means in that part of the Second Amendment they keep leaving out.

    Although the Founding Fathers were thinking of single-shot muzzle-loaders when they wrote that amendment…..

    I noticed that they made the age for carrying guns 21, rather than 18. Had the age for carrying guns been the same as the voting age, the gun carry permits would have let the student register to vote… I guess college kids with ballots frighten Republicans more than college kids with firearms.

    I also noticed that they took out the provision forbidding cops from stopping someone just because they were carrying a firearm. Although the ability to stop and question armed bikers seems reasonable, why do I feel that this will be used to harass (and maybe shoot) non-whites?

  8. I went to college at 17 and Graduated at 21, so my gun carrying time would have been limited. And couldn’t have a car on Campus until my Junior year.

    So, today’s kids (going to a public College) might not be old enough to carry a gun or have a car on campus but will be with
    older kids who do? The mind boggles.

    In the immortal words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, C-3PO, Princess Leia and many others … “I have a bad feeling about this …”

    Listen to the voices of experience, Texas!

  10. Sometimes I feel that Texas politicians don’t get the notion of an “institute of learning.”

    At least, not anything worth learning.

    This kid isn’t old enough for drivers training classes and just graduated from college-one year,4.0GPA and three degrees.

    Flying Spaghetti Monster save us all if he decides he wants to build nukular weapons in his teens(old age).

    Harvard just accepted an 11 year old student.

    Just goes to show … at least in Texas … that young people do not attend college to get an education. They are there to Partee!

    Once again, the rich have no consequences for their own actions written into the law. Remember the kid (Texas case) who killed innocent people when he drove his rich dads truck while intoxicated and killed a few and the judge said he was too rich to have known any better and he gets to go a rich kids rehabilitation center as his punishment?? Why is this requirement being shoved into the public universities who do not want it. Shame on these legislators who are on the NRA payroll.

    PKM has a point. Well THE salient point. Put’em in ROTC and teach them to be safe. My father was career military (USMA ’33); I didn’t see a weapon, firearm, etc. until I got to college. In ROTC, over 4 years & 1 extra semester, I learned to respect and understand the fatal capability of firearms and acquire the judgment to safely handle them. I experienced a strongly negative reaction to my first confirmed ‘kill’ in an incident with an NVA soldier in a village west of SaiGon. I was depressed for hours.
    People — it takes something out of a moral person to kill. All these pseudo-glib a$$h^t$ haven’t experienced the full measure of the power of a firearm. They are what the Bible calls false prophets in pursuit of heinous profits.

    Wonder if this includes HBCUs??? Will Wiley, Jarvis Christian, TSU, PV, et Al be included? Hmmm!

    I wonder if one can use the stalking law in Texas as a reason to have a ammosexual arrested?
    Here’s the Texas law on stalking.

  18. It just might take the pictorial after-math of a college frat party where a number of student partiers shot the rest of the bunch. I do see a premonition in the Waco biker shoot out as to the fate of such a horror. Next question: where does one open carry when wearing a toga?

    Do you think there may be a sizable drop in the number of applicants to public colleges in Texas? I am thinking that most parents intelligent enough to save and plan for their child’s college education don’t want it all to go to waste in a gun fight.
    Drunks and guns just do not mix EVER!

  20. Patrons, having served as peace officer in a small Texas university town in the 1970s I can testify that there were weapons of every description on campus. hunting caliber rifles; smallish caliber handguns; improvised derringers, aka zip guns loaded with caliber .22 long rifle hollow points; and likely more that I have forgotten. This law likely will only encourage those students who would not otherwise carry. The sociopaths will take no notice whatsoever. In the end, like their older peers, there will be negligent discharges in bathrooms, motor cars, hallways, etc etc. Let the carnage begin!

    An in a few years, when some adults wrest the reins of government from these woefully immature children all this will have to be undone and the mess cleaned up.

    Does the name Charles Joseph Whitman ring any bells?

  22. In an atmosphere filled with beer kegs, testosterone, and guns… what can possibly go wrong?

  23. @Don A in Pennsyltucky

    Yes. A Marine sharpshooter who disgracefully used his training against unarmed civilians.

  24. I knew the GOP was anti-higher education, but this is ridiculous.

  25. I wonder if the women who get victimized at frat parties will opt to open carry.

  26. “before “accidental shootings” start happening”
    There aint no such thing!!!!!
    You must load the gun – ON PURPOSE!
    you must handle the gun – ON PUPOSE!!
    You must point the gun in some direction – ON PURPOSE!
    You must NOT get proper instruction – ON PURPOSE!!
    You then must use the gun carelessly – ON PURPOSE!!!
    There are no accidental shootings!!!
    Even when kids shoot kids it was done on purpose but they can at least show complete ignorance of the action!!!
    Or are gun owners trying to tell us that they are as completely ignorant as a 5yr old????

  27. This ought to eliminate any campus housing shortages.

    Watch the rise in home schooled kids going for university degrees online. I wouldn’t want to walk around any campuses any more.

  30. The Lege is making me grateful, once again, for the Good Ol’ Boy who was department head when I was at TAMU, though I was pretty annoyed at the time.

    A good many years ago, I was the first woman to get tenure in my department. I was seriously underpaid already, and knew to the dollar how much, thanks to a not-so-secret study. I went to the aforementioned Good Ol’ Boy and asked for a raise, noting that a promotion was the ideal time. He said no way, I’d have to get a really good offer somewhere else first (obviously figuring no woman would ever get such a thing.) I got a really good offer at Harvard and left. Eventually made my way home to CA.

    I have fond memories of a lot of my Aggie students, and of some colleagues. But boy howdy, there were plenty I would not want to see on campus carrying a gun. There are a few at my current university, too, but the CA legislature does not share the notion that an armed campus is a peaceful campus.

  31. PKM, you might want to rethink that whole “in ROTC, 6 year contract, learn to use the weapon right thing, shoot it in another country” deal. it’s bad enough these clowns have easy access to guns on the outside, at least they have to pay for them and the ammo. in the military, they’ll have free access, to more and bigger weapons and ammo, and there’s no guarantee they will only use them overseas. all the gun safety training in the world doesn’t take away the fact that you’re an idiot to begin with, it just makes it that much easier for you to wield an M-60 (or its replacement) with more dire results.

    so, yeah, no, I really don’t want these asshats to have easier access to military grade weapons.
