"State Sen. Jeff Wentworth’s Senate Bill 354 has 14 co-authors and is a revival of a bill championed by the San Antonio Republican last session. Under Wentworth’s legislation, public college students over 21 who have obtained concealed handgun licenses (CHL) and undergone a training course could bring their firearms to school. A two-thirds vote, or 21 of 31 members, is needed to consider legislation for adoption in the Senate. Pressure from college administrators and students who fear the bill’s passage will spur violence and bloodshed have led some Democrats to reconsider their positions on the bill." (04/11/11)
