What issues would you like to talk more about with Adam?

Adam Nikas, with Capitol Resources, LLC sat with me on Friday to talk about his work as a professional lobbyist and what he does to help businesses, including nonprofits, add advocacy to their work.  I thought his words might particularly resonate with you as you are preparing to work with nonprofits to help them start the process of developing advocacy plans for their organizations.
I’m asking you to take the time to watch this video (about 35 minutes in length) and share your thoughts about it in a Discussion Board that I’ve set up.  Just to be safe, I’m posting the instructions for this assignment here.  If the Discussion Board feature does not work again, I’ve activated the comment feature at the bottom of this page where you can post your thoughts on this video.
Here are the instructions for this assignment:

In this discussion board, I simply need you to address one or more of the following topics:

Do you agree or disagree with allowing people to carry concealed handguns on public college and university campuses?

Laws Concerning Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus in Texas
According to Texas Penal Code § 46.03(f) an individuals are prohibited from intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly possessing or going with a firearm on the physical premises of a school or educational institution, any grounds or building on which an activity sponsored by a school or educational institution is being conducted, or in a passenger transportation vehicle of a school or educational institution, whether the school or educational institution is public or private, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution. Concealed weapons permit holders are subject to this prohibition with the following exceptions.
Effective Dates:  August 1, 2016 for all state 4-year colleges and universities; August 1, 2017 for all state 2-year and junior colleges.
The new Texas law will permit individuals who have obtained a concealed handgun license (CHL) to carry their loaded, concealed weapon in college and university buildings.  Each college and university may determine certain sensitive areas and buildings* where concealed weapons will continue to be prohibited. Each college and university must publicly display campus policies on the official school website, as well as widely publicizing it among correspondence with the institution’s faculty, staff, and students. Previous laws permitting the concealed carry with a license on open campus grounds and in locked vehicles in parking lots will remain unchanged (see note 2 below).
*The sensitive areas will first be determined by the institution and will include representatives from the student body, faculty, and staff. Once the sensitive areas are approved by this committee, they will be sent to the Board of Regents for a 2/3 vote for approval.
Do you agree or disagree with allowing people to carry concealed handguns on public college and university campuses? Why or why not?
2. When it comes to “sensitive areas” according to the law above, identify at least one area where should handguns be prohibited on a public or university campus and explain why. You must identify at least one area.
How is this topic related to the individualistic and traditionalistic political cultures in Texas?
Do you agree with campus carry? Why or why not?
Identify at least one area on campus that should be labeled as a “sensitive area” in accordance with the law. You must identify at least one area.
