The Guardian.uk reported a story on Texas’ allowing students to defend themselves from thugs, rapists and psychos like the one that killed 32 students at Virginia Tech. Imagine if just one of those students had a self-defense weapon. University administrators strongly opposed the measure that the Texas State House passed. It is likely that they [...]
