Re: Urgent Action Items: Parking lots & campus-carry

Robert Duncan is opposing campus carry per his Lubbock office this afternoon (Tues). No reason given. The usual blah blah blah I support the second amendment but don't think a law that allows "anyone" (yes "anyone") to carry a handgun on campus is a good idea. And yes, my inquiry to the staffer as to whether he realizes that the bill doesn't allow "anyone" to carry a gun on campus was answered in the affirmative. She was reading from a prepared statement and read the word "anyone" so I have some question as to whether the senator knows what he is against.

If he is your senator...

806-762-1122
1500 Broadway
Suite 902
Lubbock, Texas 79401

I would guess this bodes ill for parking lots also.

Re: Urgent Action Items: Parking lots & campus-carry

Robert Duncan's office has basically replied to me that they are "weighing all the arguments". However a local talk show host yesterday stated that Duncan was opposing campus carry. His staffer had agreed to let me know when a decision was made and I have heard nothing, so I don't know if the radio guy is correct or not. Take it FWIW.

Re: Urgent Action Items: Parking lots & campus-carry

I spoke with Robert Duncan's office (Sen. Lubbock) this morning. The staffer read me (it sounded verbatim) a response from Duncan on both 1164 and 730. Duncan has apparently not taken a position, the response included the normal "I respect the 2A" verbage, but that he and the senate as well as the house needed to "examine all the data on both sides" and come together as a legislature to make decisions.

I was very disappointed with the response, though for now I will take him at his word that he hasn't made a decision.

I guess I'm writing another letter today.
