Baylor University recently approved a resolution by the student senate that will allow students who have their concealed pistol permits to carry their firearms on the Waco, Texas campus.
It won’t go into effect until it is passed by the Board of regents. There are some hesitations, however, on the part of some school officials. They do feel as if this change would affect security measures on the school campus.
Gannon McCahill is a 20-year-old senior who wrote the resolution that would be approved. He wrote it after a student was killed and two others were injured during a shooting on a school campus near his hometown of Seattle, Washington.
There is already a state law in Texas that allows students with concealed carry permits to keep guns on campus, as long as they are in a locked compartment in their cars.
There is a chance that the resolution will not be approved. The student body president does have the ability to veto the decision within the next seven days. Time will tell what the final decision is.
