Texas State University already has some of the least-restrictive campus carry restrictions in the state. Brian Bensimon, Southwest regional director for Students for Concealed Carry, commented, “The fact that the Texas State University student government voted so overwhelmingly in support of broader campus carry rights speaks to the fact that campus carry is rapidly gaining acceptance among Texas college students.”
