Members of the Texas State House are hoping to pass a new law that would require colleges and universities to allow students over the age of 21 to carry concealed handguns on campus.

Proponents of the bill including Jeff Wentworth (R) argue concealed weapons are the best way to combat a Virgina Tech copy-cat shooting in Texas. Meanwhile, opponents like Eddie Rodriguez (D) say colleges and universities should be able to choose on an individual basis whether or not to embrace such a policy. Reps. Wentworth and Rodriguez talk to American Morning’s Kiran Chetry.
