No, you don't. Do you realize what all goes into getting a concealed handgun license? Among other things, a $140 fee to the state, another $100 or so to take an 8-hour class where you're taught all applicable laws (including the one that says, "A license holder commits an offense if, while
intoxicated, the license holder carries a handgun under the
authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless
of whether the handgun is concealed," a Class A Misdemeanor), and an extensive background check. There are plenty of college kids (age 21 and older), me included, that carry as often as is legally possible and don't get drunk at frat parties and shoot people. I challenge you to find one instance of that.
