Rick would sign concealed carry on campus "in an instant"

There is a debate right now about allowing concealed carry on college campuses, and Rick has said he would sign a measure allowing it in an instant (link). Excerpt follows:

A current rule upheld by the University of Texas’ code of conduct that prohibits guns on campus may be overruled by the Texas legislature if the vote to allow concealed carry on campus succeeds in an April vote.

If approved, the current law allowing licensed individuals over the age of 21 to carry handguns in the state of Texas would be extended to include all Texas colleges and universities, according to Katie Kasprzak, Students for Concealed Carry on Campus Organization in Texas spokesperson.

“We feel those people should not be prohibited (in) their right to self-defense on college campuses,” Kasprzak said.

According to Kasprzak, the university is not advocating the change to its current code of conduct, but Texas state governor Rick Perry said he would sign the bill “in an instant” if it successfully passed through the state legislature.

Where does Kay stand on this issue? Could this be a point of agreement, or a point of contention?

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
