State Rep. Suzanna Hupp doesn't like to advertise the fact. But if you press her, she won't deny it--yes, she does carry a loaded gun when she's on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives. She feels safer that way. For similar reasons, she wrote a bill--three days before the recent school shooting in Santee, Calif.--to allow rural high school principals to carry concealed weapons on the job.

Re "To Texas Lawmaker, Guns Are the Answer," March 16: What insanity is this? Texas state Rep. Suzanna Hupp wants to create laws so that school principals will be armed should a student or other crazed person open fire on a campus. What kind of parents would send their children to an armed camp where a teacher or principal would be willing to shoot a child, even in self-defense? In previous school shooting incidents, the shooters were [as young as] 11 and 13. Far be it from her to suggest metal detectors at schools, or routine searches of lockers and backpacks.

Texas state Rep. Suzanna Gratia Hupp, an advocate of the right to carry handguns, has proposed legislation that would let principals and superintendents in the state's rural districts arm themselves at school. Principals from rural districts asked Hupp to propose the measure so they could protect students from incidents such as Monday's shooting at a high school in Santee, Calif., that left two dead, an aide to Hupp said.

WASHINGTON - When President Obama implored Congress on Tuesday to take up the thorny issue of gun violence, he did so in the name of Nathaniel Pendleton Sr. and Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton, whose 15-year-old daughter, Hadiya, was killed just two weeks ago in Chicago. "They deserve a vote," he said in an escalating refrain echoed by legislators gathered for his State of the Union address. He recited other individuals and communities shattered by shootings, such as Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn.

In years past, the Hanna Springs Intermediate School parents' association raised money by selling cookies and pies. Last year, there was a carnival with balloons and games. This year, it's firearms -- two of them, including a top-of-the-line rifle, a scope and two boxes of ammunition -- that will be raffled off today at high noon. "Bake sales are a thing of the past," said Marta Ellison, one of three mothers who thought of the idea over breakfast at a local restaurant.

Their counterdemonstration in support of gun rights will be smaller than the Million Mom March. But the gun-owning women who make up the Second Amendment Sisters feel just as passionately about their cause. "The anti-gun factions constantly say that if it saves one life, it's worth it," said Debra Collins, who once used a 12-gauge shotgun to defend herself from an attack by her ex-husband at 4 o'clock in the morning. "Well, my firearm saved one life--mine."
