Good News and an Urgent Call to Action!

May 9, 2011

Campus Carry Advocates:

As you’ve likely already heard, campus carry was passed out of the Texas Senate today ( as an amendment to SB 1581, a higher education finance bill. That’s very good news, but this fight is far from over.

Because SB 1581 has a House companion (HB 3639) and because there are still legislators in both chambers working diligently to kill campus carry, the next few days are going to be complicated, to say the least.

As soon as we have an idea of what to expect in the House, we’ll give you more specific directions on how you can help. But for now, this is what we need you to do (be forewarned, this is a little hard to follow):

Call YOUR State Representative (, and encourage him or her to support ANY legislation or amendments that would legalize licensed concealed carry at Texas colleges. Then, ask him or her to vote against HB 3639 and instead support SB 1581 *IF* HB 3639 is not amended (as SB 1581 already has been) to legalize campus carry.

That’s all you need to do right now. Don’t bother calling the Calendars Committee or anyone else just yet—those things may not be necessary. Just call YOUR State Representative, and pass along the message above. Then, ask your friends and relatives who support campus carry to do the same.

We’ll provide you with more-detailed information as soon as it becomes available.
