Shooting at Oregon campus unnerves local college students

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Two years after a shooting rocked the north campus of Lone Star College in 2013, students are passionate about the new Concealed Carry Law.

As of today, it's illegal to carry guns on college campuses in Texas. But next September, Texas will join nine other states in allowing concealed weapons at four-year campuses. And in August 2017, concealed weapons will be allowed at two year colleges, too.

School officials will only be able to restrict weapons in very few areas, like science labs and certain parking areas.

Some students feel allowing more guns on campus is a bad idea, especially since the shooting in 2014. Other students are more open to the idea, saying they would feel safer, especially at night.
