Texas Campus Gun Law Draws Mixed Reactions


Classes are now under way on state university campuses in Texas, where a new law went into effect last month allowing anyone with a concealed weapon license to bring a handgun on to campus, as long as it remains concealed. Since January, the same law has allowed open carry of handguns in most other public places, with little noticeable impact. As VOA’s Greg Flakus reports from Houston, most students have expressed little concern, but some professors are worried.
