Students Want Concealed Carry on Campus

On April 7, less than a year after it was formed, Students for Concealed Carry on Campus passed the 25,000-members mark and made note of the fact that approximately one out of every 755 college students in the United States is now a member of the organization.

SCCC reached this milestone only days ahead of the one-year anniversary of the tragic day on which a 23-year-old gunman Cho Heung-Sui killed 33 people, including himself, on the campus of Virginia Tech University.

Undoubtedly, some in the liberal news media and in the anti-Second Amendment lobby will try to find fault with those behind SCCC, a nonprofit group fighting to legalize concealed carry on college campuses. But they’ll encounter some blowback if the figures on the SCCC web site are accurate (i.e., approximately one out of every 755 college students in the United States is now a member of the organization).

Anyone who thinks SCCC is trying — or will try — to capitalize on the tragedy at Blacksburg in order to boost membership rolls needs to read the “Announcement to SCCC Members and the Press” below which I found on the group’s web site today:

“Students for Concealed Carry on Campus we will neither host nor endorse any protests during the week of April 13-19. April 16 is to be a day of remembrance for the students, faculty, and families affected by the Virginia Tech shooting. SCCC wishes to avoid any action that might distract or detract from the memory of the individuals lost on April 16, 2007.”

  1. “If guns are outlawed; only outlaws will have guns.” How many crimes could be prevented if the criminals thought their potential victim could be packing? I have an aunt in her 70s that keeps a pistol in her pocket. She has warned punks approaching her in St. Louis, “Don’t even think about it; or I’ll shoot.” They could tell she was serious by the fire in her eyes and the “point” in her pocket. She’s still kicking and still packing.

  3. Concealed carry would have prevented this type of behavior.

    Most professors don’t want concealed carry because the way they treat students, i.e., bullying, seducing females, threatening, etc. I had a prof in college that used to make the girls cry and promised if they slept with them, they would pass. Well, some of us farm boys had a “come to Jesus” meeting with him and showed him the error of his ways, because the girls were no longer afraid of this prof. At the time, campus police were only ticket givers. We also were feared by the other profs, who were doing the same thing . No big deal, but we respected the girls. Most of us we Nam vets and knew how to stop this. Law enforcement knew about this, but were no opposed to the idea.
    As I said, concealed carry would have prevented this type of behavior.
