Texas gun legislation sends mixed message
The Lubbock Avalanche Journal
Gov. Rick Perry has signed numerous legislation during this session in Austin aimed at concealed carry in Texas, while vetoing the so-called Protection of Texas Children Act, which would have created a program at public and charter schools that allows for employees with a valid CHL license to have their weapons at hand or locked away nearby. The legislation would have provided funding for training to respond with deadly force if needed in the case of an active shooter, but Perry said the accompanying cost of $10 million was too steep and also didn’t address important safety issues.
