SGA President Maddie Reddick and House Rep. Blake Tilley discuss the seriousness of the campus carry issue with House members.

The Student Government Association is sending out a poll to gauge student opinions on the campus carry issue.

The poll will be sent out Monday via email.

SGA will use the results to create a formal resolution about campus carry to present to the Board of Trustees.

Class 0f 2016 representative Blake Tilley said each member of the House of Student Representatives has been encouraged to talk to their constituents, their friends and other students.

“Anyone [representatives] feel comfortable having a conversation with is who we encourage them to talk to,” Tilley said.

Tilley said students who are passionate about this can attend the House meetings on Tuesdays at 5 p.m. in the chambers on the third floor of the Brown-Lupton University Union.

The campus carry debate is something Student Body President Maddie Reddick said she is taking seriously because of the potential it has to affect students lives.

“We have the opportunity to voice the student opinion and we can only do that if they share their opinion with us,” Reddick said. “Whatever it is, we want to hear their voices and opinions so we can do what’s best for this university.”

The resolution will be proposed to the House on Sept. 29, but it will not be voted on until Oct. 6 so that representatives have more time to collect student feedback.

The poll will include the options of opt-in, opt-out or undecided. Students can send their comments to campuscarry@tcu.edu, which Reddick will be monitoring.

Students can also email their representatives to voice their opinions. Students can find out who their representative is on the SGA website.
