TACT First Alert: 5/27/15


Unlike some newspaper headlines this morning, the Texas House of Representatives late last night passed a version of Guns On Campus. The significant compromise was that each campus would adopt a plan by which specific areas will be included/excluded from the concealed weapons requirements. Health Centers will be prohibited from concealed weapons.
