Linda Autry, a faculty senate member at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, said the faculty senate is concerned over the safety of students and faculty in the event of a shooting, such as the one in 2007 at Virginia Tech that left 33 people dead.

“In the event of an incident, if quite a few people are brandishing guns, and the cops are on the scene, it may be a little hard to tell who is the initial perpetrator and who is there to help out,” Autry said.

But sisters Kandi Roberts and Stacie Baird, both senior criminology majors at UTPB, said that allowing concealed carry on campus would make students safer. Roberts has a concealed handgun permit, while Baird said she plans to take a 10-hour course to get one next month.

“If you hear about something happening, it happens in all the places you are not allowed to carry a gun, churches, schools,” Roberts said. “Because (shooters) know you are not allowed to carry a gun.”

“churches”

After the mass church shooter near Forth Worth, Carrying in Churches became legal for Texas licensees.

———————

“In the event of an incident, if quite a few people are brandishing guns, and the cops are on the scene, it may be a little hard to tell who is the initial perpetrator and who is there to help out,” Autry said.

That’s why we re-holster and re-conceal prior to Campus police ever arriving.

Ray Hunt, the 2nd vice-president of the Houston Police Officers’ Union, the largest police union in the state of Texas, spoke out in favor of legalizing licensed concealed carry (of handguns) on Texas college campuses and dismissed the notion that the presence of armed citizens would somehow cause chaos or confusion during or following a campus shooting.

He also mentioned that the union had been originally fairly anti-CHL, fearing shootings of CHL-holders by police amongst other things. Upon seeing that that hadn’t occurred at all, they were happy to throw their support behind the concept of CHL in general, and they now specifically support concealed-carry on campus.

In a “Mass-shooting”
It isn’t hard to tell a person walking desk to desk executing people from a CHL hiding under a desk waiting his turn so he can shoot upwards at the shooter and any bullet passing through the shooter hits the ceiling instead of other students on the floor. Step 2, re-holster, and conceal again, before untrained campus police arrive later, and they get all confused and stuff

In an individual; rape/robbery situation:
If carrying, shoot gunman.

My 2 cents to the other right-on posts. Isn’t hard at all. Police walk in and yell, “Police, drop your weapons!” The guy who keeps shooting, or points his gun at a cop? Pretty likely he’s the bad guy>
