    Texas A&M University and the affiliated universities in its system have embraced campus carry and will allow guns on campus with “few major restrictions.”

    The policy now formulated and “approved Chancellor John Sharp and A&M System legal staff” allows concealed carry permit holders to carry in classrooms and dorms. Exceptions will be dorms at Prairie View A&M, Texas A&M International University and A&M-Corpus Christi, each of which “have dorms that are leased by third-party companies.”

    Texas’ campus carry law–which takes effect August 1, 2016–allows public universities and colleges to set certain limits on where guns can be carried and allows private universities to opt out of campus carry altogether. For example, the University of Texas system plans to allow guns in classrooms but not in dormitories. Abilene’s Hardin-Simmons University nixed campus carry altogether.

    Gun grabbers are ubiquitous in the current 21st century Democratic Party and, with effort, one or two gun grabbers can be found in the Republican Party as well.

    What follows is a list of four of the most infamous gun grabbers currently serving in elected office. A short overview of the most well-known gun grabbing exploits of each is also provided.

    1. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)0%
    — Following the heinous December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary, Senator Feinstein emerged with a gun ban aimed at completely barring the possession of “assault weapons.” On December 17, 2o12, the San Francisco Chronicle announced Feinstein was preparing to introduce a ban on “assault weapons and and big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets” after Adam Lanza used a stolen AR-15 to attack the school. But Breitbart News made clear that Feinstein’s ban was, in fact, so broad as to ban not only “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines” but also numerous shotguns and semiautomatic pistols.

    President Barack Obama has coughed up some more documents at the center of a years-long House investigation into the “Fast and Furious” scheme that cost at least one U.S. border patrol agent — Brian Terry — and smuggled thousands of guns to drug cartels.

    Representative Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)59%
    (R-CA-9th) — who oversaw the initiation of the Fast and Furious investigation while he was chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee — said in a statement that Obama “has finally been forced” to comply with House investigators.

    Other documents are still being withheld, said Issa, who called for a full explanation of the government-run “gun walking” program that resulted in the delivery of many U.S.-bought weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

    During an April 4 interview, Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) reiterated his defense of lawfully made and sold firearms and made clear his belief that family members of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims should not be allowed to sue Bushmaster.

    According to The New York Daily News, Sanders responded to questions about suing gun makers and sellers by voicing his opposition to holding “a gun dealer” liable for the behavior of someone to whom a gun is legally sold. When asked specifically about the lawsuit Sandy Hook families seek to file against the manufacturer of the stolen gun that was used in that attack, Sanders said he does not support the suit.

    NY Daily News asked, “There’s a case currently waiting to be ruled on in Connecticut. The victims of the Sandy Hook massacre are looking to have the right to sue for damages the manufacturers of the weapons. Do you think that that is something that should be expanded?”

    Sanders responded, “Do I think the victims of a crime with a gun should be able to sue the manufacturer, is that your question?”

    The NY Daily News said, “Correct.”

    Sanders replied, “No, I don’t.”

    Californian Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is hitching his 2018 gubernatorial campaign to a statewide ballot proposal that would sharply restrict the sale of ammunition.

    “It seems to me the most dangerous part of the weapon is not the weapon itself, it’s the ammunition,” he said April 1.

    He wants anyone buying ammunition to endure a background check similar to the one that would-be gun buyers currently have to pass to buy a firearm.

    According to the Press Democrat, Newsom, speaking at the Graton casino, told a story about being denied a Sudafed cold medicine purchase because he did not have a driver’s license to show at the pharmacy counter. He suggested it is strange that a person has to show ID to buy cold medicine but not ammunition.
