“Campus Carry” has been on the forefront of the fight for armed self-defense for years.
Two years ago the state of Texas legalized concealed carry on campus and we’re starting to hear from law enforcement about how it’s affected life on campus.
Despite what the media might tell you, campus carry isn’t about arming drunken 19 year olds. Under most state campus carry laws, legal concealed carry permit holders who are students are allowed to carry on campus without fear of expulsion.
Texas Tech University Police has announced their findings, two years after campus carry became legal, and liberals are going to lose their minds.
From Oath Keepers:
“Campus carry has been law in Texas for two years now, and Texas Tech police say the law makes the university a safer place,” KAMC News reports. “They say the policy even deters potential active shooters from attempting a mass shooting situation.”
That’s right folks, Texas Tech police says campus carry has actually made the school safer!
Everything Lubbock continues the reporting:
Tech police say in a potential active shooter situation, someone might be able to stop it if they are armed.
“I like to think we’re no longer a targeting opportunity for any such event, such as active shooter, because they know if they come on campus, there could be a potential for an individual to be able to stop the active shooting,” Ivey said.
Students, faculty and staff must go through active shooter training.
“We actually do a hands-on part where we barricade doors, we show you how to go hands-on with weapons, how to defend yourself and also a truncated training on how to stop the bleed, so that way, all of our faculty, staff and students are prepared if an event does happen here on campus,” Ivey said.
Some students say they feel safer in class.
“I do feel safe knowing that there are people that will act upon,” said Tech student Cody Wheeler. “If they have their concealed carry, and they see something going, they’ll feel the need to go step in.”
