Tech Shooting Proves Guns and Campuses Don’t Mix

Prayers and condolences go out to the family and friends of Lubbock’s slain policeman and the entire Texas Tech University community.

Don’t tell me that recent “guns on campus” legislation didn’t contribute to this incident because the perpetrator was too young for a concealed handgun license. The law was another societal statement that guns are OK.

Registration Open for Capitol Visits

You can now register for the TACT Fall Conference and Legislative Visits, October 27 and 28, by replying to this email or calling 512-419-9275.
