On today’s broadcast of CNN’s American Morning, state Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, and state Rep. Eddie Rodriguez, D-Austin, debated the controversial issue of concealed handguns on college campuses. Wentworth is one of the authors of SB354, which would legalize campus carry. Rodriguez opposes a change in the current policy prohibiting campus carry.
