This series was originally published in Huffington Post as an article titled How To Get Guns Off Campuses: A Call To Action!
We will be publishing this series over the next few days.
The 2nd Amendment and campus carry can be touchy subjects. Try to be respectful of the viewpoints of other people and groups, such as those of Students for Concealed Carry, even if you don’t agree with them.
Don’t forget to vote this November 8th!
It is our hope that this series can serve as a starting point for a collaborative effort against campus carry in Texas. We hope to see you along the way!
