Texas' state legislature is passing a law to allow concealed handguns in the classroom.

The campus-carry bill, which would allow students and faculty to have concealed handguns all around state campuses, is expected to be signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and would take effect starting in August 2016. 

Texas would become the eighth state to officially allow concealed handguns on campus. The bill would allow private universities to opt out of allowing handguns and would let public universities make parts of their campus gun-free. 

Texans will still have to be 21 or older to have a concealed handgun in the state. A New York Times article found little support for the bill among University of Texas at Austin students.
