I'm not going to comment on the image until you all get a chance to have your fun. I am, however, going to post a couple of interesting tid bits from the associated news article.
From the News Journal:

Utah became the first state to allow concealed weapons on state-supported colleges in 2007. At least a dozen states are considering such bills, and state Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, said he will introduce a similar bill when the Legislature convenes in January.This is the first I have see of names introducing a bill. I had thought Representative Driver was introducing a campus carry bill, he may still be. It is possible that several bills could get introduced this next session. I'll try to dig up some more specifics.
Sen. Kevin Eltife, R-Tyler, and Rep. Tommy Merritt, R-Longview, agree with the idea and said they will likely support Wentworth's bill.
Oh, one bit of hysteria from the Kilgore College campus Police Chief. Bill Lewis.
Lewis said he would oppose letting students carry concealed weapons on campus.Hey Chief, are 10% of your students over the age of 21? Can they pass the local, state and federal background checks currently required to obtain a Texas CHL? Would they be interested in jumping through the hoops to get a CHL? If so, then I can imagine that you would probably have the most mature and responsible student body of any small town college in Texas. Y'all should be proud of yourselves.
"We're a small college — about 5,000 students," Lewis said, "but could you imagine if just a tenth of our student body — 500 people — were carrying weapons?"
Now, back to the image of the college police officer who is there to protect our kids, just how effective do you think she will be?
