Texas to Pass 'GUNS ON CAMPUS' Legislation! An Excercise in Stupidity?

Governor Rick Perry-April 2010

Texas is poised to pass 'Guns on Campus' legislation this coming week. Soon students and teachers on Texas college campuses will be able to 'tote them guns' right into the classroom. 

Governor Rick Perry and others have been campaigning for this legislation for about a year and it's expected to pass by a wide margin.

"Remember Virginia Tech? Well nuttin' like that gonna happen in Texas", according to a State House member sponsoring the Bill. 

The Arizona Shooter
Apparently 'Texas' doesn't remember the Arizona Shooter, Jared Loughner, who killed 6 people and wounded 14 just last month was a college student who had trouble with other students and teachers on several occasions. Imagine the possibilities if guns were legal on his campus.  

Texas has 38 colleges and universities with 500,000 students.

Is this legislation really necessary? Is it an exercise in stupidity?
