Few students would be likely to carry guns in Texas
The Dallas Morning News
Only a small fraction of students at Texas' biggest public universities would probably carry a concealed handgun in campus buildings under proposed legislation that's been fast-tracked in the state Senate. That's partly because the contentious bill authored by Sen. Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, would limit the privilege to those who have concealed handgun licenses. Texans must be at least 21 years old to get that license, a requirement that would disqualify a large portion of the student body.

The 5 best pocket carry handguns
OutdoorHub

Bearing Arms
The way gun control groups and certain anti-gun liberal Democrats tell their outlandish stories, you would think that machine guns flow from manufacturers to gangs in the streets like water rushing down a mountainside. They always seem to forget to mention the fact that precisely zero new machine guns have hit the civilian market since 1986, thanks to the controversially passed Hughes Amendment which banned the sale of new machine guns to law-abiding Americans.

The Emporia Gazette
More than 90,000 Kansans have applied for concealed carry licenses since July of 2006 when the Kansas Legislature passed the Personal and Family Protection Act. Now the Legislature is considering a bill that would allow individuals to carry a concealed handgun without a license. If passed, this would allow any individual regardless of firearm experience or safety training to carry a gun.
