Handguns on campus fails in House of Representatives

A bill that would have permitted students to carry concealed handguns on campus did not pass in the Texas House of Representatives this summer, contrary to the expectations of Don Mills, vice chancellor for student affairs.

The bill, constructed early this year, was rejected at the House this summer after passing a 19-12 vote in the Texas Senate on May 20.

Mills said he was happy over the result, though surprised the bill did not pass, he said.
