Texas is preparing to give college students and professors the right to carry guns on campus.
More than half the members of the state's house of representatives are the co-authors of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns.
The state's senate passed a similar bill in 2009, and is expected to do so again.
The Republican governor, Rick Perry, who sometimes carries a pistol when he jogs, supports the idea.
Texas is one of about a dozen states considering allowing weapons on university campuses. It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a law.
Colorado gives colleges the option, and several allow handguns.
No bolding, because it's a very short article.
