I have flooded Greg Abbott's email, to require school districts, as part of their safety plan, to allow teachers, and staff, who possess, a LTC, to be allowed to carry on campuses. I realize this must be done, at the Legislative level, but a State mandate, along these lines, would be the least expensive first step, since those people are already there, and being paid, so the out of pocket money wold be zero.
I'm not sure this would require legislation. I think all it would take is each school district allowing it. I think they could even say that they will allow parents with LTC's to carry on their premises.

They may allow it now, there are some school districts who do so. I would rather see it become mandatory, especially since it is one measure that would not require spending additional money.

Re: Governor Abbott Navigates Public Attitudes and Political Realities with Gun Policy Announcement

While i have no problem, with the majority, of the proposed "suggestions", they are just that, suggestions. I saw nothing besides, requiring reporting to NICS within 48 hours, someone who would be prohibited from purchasing a firearm. Which works great for those, who are a threat, and do not already own a firearm.

I have flooded Greg Abbott's email, to require school districts, as part of their safety plan, to allow teachers, and staff, who possess, a LTC, to be allowed to carry on campuses.

I know that there would be push back from the left wing, but, every school shooting, had one thing in common, and that is, that, there was no one able to shoot back, at the onset of the shooting.

I have also reached out to my other State representatives to introduce bills to require exactly this. JMHO
