Satisfactory Essays
On August 1, 2016, senate bill 11 (S.B. 11) was put into effect, which allows for the carrying of concealed handguns on Texas public institution campuses by license to carry a handgun (LTC) holders (Campus Carry UTSA). There has been lots of controversy over this new law, especially since there were 23 shootings on college campuses in 2015 alone. In this essay, I plan to explain the stipulations of this new law and why it is controversial. The purpose of S.B. 11 is to allow students and faculty to carry firearms on them in case of an emergency. S.B. 11 was proposed on January 26, 2015 and passed on June 13, 2015. A little more than one year later, on August 1, 2016, the bill was put into effect.
