The truth. It is written here.

By professors, no less!

Mass public shootings are a particularly horrific feature of modern life. Many of the bloodiest examples of this scourge have occurred on college campuses, so as professors we are particularly sensitive to this danger.
Despite this — no, because of this — we support a bill currently pending in the Texas Legislature that would permit the concealed carrying of firearms on college and university campuses in the state by holders of concealed-handgun licenses. We therefore call on the Legislature to follow the example of the Missouri House of Representatives, which recently passed a similar bill by an overwhelming margin.

You should read the whole thing. It's good to see someone from that side take a look at this from a more logical view as opposed to the more emotion-laden fact-free rhetoric so often seen from supposedly learned intellectuals.
