Have you noticed that liberals sometimes turn into fiscal conservatives when it comes to paying for things they don’t like?

Campus carry is one such issue.

The Dallas Morning News reports:

Texas schools said campus carry would cost $15M this year but have spent less than $1M so far

The costs incurred by most public colleges and universities to implement Texas’ contentious campus carry law can be measured in hundreds of thousands of dollars.

That’s a far cry from the multimillion-dollar expenses they told lawmakers last year they would rack up to prepare for licensed gun owners to carry concealed in classrooms and other buildings.

The disparity, found in a Dallas Morning News survey, underscores the ongoing debate over the measure’s impact. And the figures, which could complicate efforts to push back on the law, appear to back up the charge that university officials were guilty of political gamesmanship.

“No one wanted to listen,” said Rep. Allen Fletcher, a Tomball Republican who sponsored the legislation. “It was just kind of ludicrous that there was going to be any big outlay of money.”
