Campus Carry in Texas

This story is amusing. It’s in the campus paper for my alma mater and is about the fact that Texas will allow¬†people to carry a concealed weapon on campus starting in August of 2016. Then we run into this sentence:

State University of New York Cortland Political Science Chair, Robert Spitzer, Ph.D, said the bill will not generate a feeling of safety on Texas campuses.

So the reporter for a university newspaper in Texas has to go aaaaaaaaaaall the way to New York to find a professor to speak out against it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands of professors in Texas would suffice.
