Birdwell gets opposition from Baylor on proposed gun bill

State Sen. Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury) has received a petition containing 120 signatures in opposition of his Senate Bill 182, which would allow those with a license to carry a concealed weapon to have them on college campuses. Texas is currently one of 21 states that ban weapons on campuses. On Monday (Feb. 18), two Baylor University professors hand-delivered the petition to Birdwell’s district office in Waco, according to the Waco Tribune. Birdwell says that the bill is in accordance with the rights of citizens to bear arms as stipulated in the state and U.S. Constitution.
