Call NOW! / Call OFTEN!

May 19, 2011

Dear Campus Carry Advocates:

As you may or may not have heard, the campus carry amendment to Senate Bill 1581 was killed in the Texas House, on the point of order that it violated the Texas Constitutional rule against a bill addressing more than one subject.

As things stand right now, we have only a couple of options remaining. One potential option would be to attach the language of HB 2178, the decriminalization only or “compromise” version of our campus carry bill, to Senate Bill 905, a bill dealing with other aspects of concealed carry law. But in order for that to be an option, the House Calendars Committee MUST place SB 905 on the House calendar IMMEDIATELY.

Please call these members (and only these members) of the House Calendars Committee, and tell them that if they truly support campus carry, they will place SB 905 on the House calendar as soon as possible so that it can be amended to include the language of HB 2178, the “campus carry compromise” bill:

Rep. Todd Hunter (committee chair) – (512) 463-0672
Rep. Dennis Bonnen (committee vice chair) – (512) 463-0564
Rep. John Zerwas – (512) 463-0657
Rep. Charlie Geren – (512) 463-0610
Rep. Byron Cook – (512) 463-0730
Rep. Lois W. Kolkhorst – (512) 463-0600
Rep. Tracy O. King – (512) 463-0194
Rep. Vicki Truitt – (512) 463-0690
Rep. Jim Keffer – (512) 463-0656
Rep. Burt R. Solomons – (512) 463-0478

Feel free to call once a day through Sunday.


Students for Concealed Carry on Campus

PS from me:
I think it may be worth beginning to call Gov. Perry’s office to attempt to get him to call a special session on the subject of Campus Carry.
