Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is a national, non-partisan, grassroots organization comprising over 42,000 college students, professors, college employees, parents of college students, and concerned citizens who believe that holders of state-issued concealed handgun licenses should be allowed the same measure of personal protection on college campuses that they enjoy virtually everywhere else.

This week, the group held its Second National Conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  The event featured many distinguished speakers, including author and scholar John R. Lott Jr., Professor Bob Cottrol of George Washington University, Nelson Lund, the Patrick Henry Professor of Constitutional Law and the Second Amendment at the George Mason University School of Law, NRA-ILA Grassroots Division Director Glen Caroline, and NRA-ILA Grassroots Division Information Specialist Sara Adler, among others.

Topics covered included victims' personal experiences, a debate over allowing permitted concealed handguns on college campuses, academic, legal and legislative panels, and discussions on student activism and lobbying, among others. 

The event was well attended and was a great success.

One of the afternoon's highlights was NRA-ILA Grassroots Division Director Glen Caroline's keynote speech. To watch a video of the speech, please click here.
