    FROM VCDL PRESIDENT:

    I will be speaking at Virginia Tech this Monday, November 9th from 7 PM to 9 PM room 129 of McBryde Hall. I will be covering the issue of concealed carry at higher educational campuses by students, faculty and staff with CHPs.

    If you can come to show support for the whole issue, that would be fantastic!

    Here is the announcement by Ken Stanton of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, which includes the other events going on next week and directions to McBryde Hall:

    Defense Education Week 2009

    November 9th – 14th is Defense Education Week, hosted by Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at colleges across the country. Virginia Tech is participating with week-long events, speakers, newspaper articles, and demos pertaining to the issue, conducted by Registered Student Organization Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at Virginia Tech.

    We strongly believe that the ban on Virginia campuses will be lifted in the 2010 legislative session, which will start in January. Support for the cause has continued to rise as more people see that there is no good reason to deny state-permitted individuals to carry concealed firearms while on campus, just like they do everywhere else.

    Monday

    What is the case for concealed carry on campus? Is it just about 4/16?

    Concealed Carry Quiz, Petition to the President

    7-9pm, McBryde 129 – Philip Van Cleave (President of VCDL) and SCCC at VT representatives

    Philip Van Cleave is the President of the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League, a large and very active gun-rights group fighting for the citizens of Virginia. He will present a speech outlining the need and reason for concealed carry rights on Virginia’s public campuses.

    After Mr. Van Cleave’s speech, a Q&A forum will be held where supporters and dissenters can inquire about the topic further.


    Tuesday

    How does the Second Amendment affect concealed carry on campus?

    Concealed Carry Quiz, Petition to the President

    Invitation to attend Second Tuesday Constitution Group at the Roanoke County Library, 6:30pm

    There are no formal events on Tuesday, but the Second Tuesday Constitution Group is holding its monthly meeting at the Roanoke County Library, and they will be discussing some Second Amendment issues and ways to protect our rights.


    Wednesday

    What is legal and illegal, and what would change? Would all students be armed?

    Concealed Carry Quiz, Petition to the President

    7-8pm, McBryde 129 – Leyla Myers (Second Amendment March) and SCCC at VT representatives

    Leyla Myers is the Virginia State Coordinator for the Second Amendment March, an event to be held in April of 2010 in Washington, D.C., to remind our lawmakers who their anti-gun legislation affects. She will be speaking briefly about the event and how the mission of SCCC is part of the bigger picture. Q&A will follow the event.


    Thursday

    Has anyone ever used his or her firearm in self-defense? Who actually carries a gun?

    Concealed Carry Quiz, Petition to the President

    7-9pm, McBryde 129 – Teresa McKensie (attack survivor) and SCCC at VT representatives

    Teresa McKensie is a resident of Southwest Virginia and has been featured on CNN after she used her firearm to defend herself from her ex-husband. Others will join Mrs. McKensie in sharing their stories of having used their firearms in self-defense and/or reasons why they decided to carry a firearm. Emphasis will be given to the ladies of firearm ownership, as their voices are often ignored and dismissed in this issue.


    Friday

    What kind of training is required when carrying a firearm?

    Concealed Carry Quiz, Petitions delivered to the President

    Related event is on Saturday



    Saturday

A demonstration of self-defense techniques will follow a speech from Mr. Rumbaugh on the education and training that is necessary to be able to defend yourself in an attack situation. Note that the location of this event will be off-campus as airsoft/simulated weapons may be used for demonstration purposes.

    Ken sure has a knack for turning Pro Gun activists...against him.

    They make it seem as though there's a VA law that prevents people from carrying on campus. There is no "the ban" in VA. And I agree, there should not be an exemption for CHP holders, it should be for all gun carriers including those who didn't bother asking the government permission to exercise a right.

    We've discussed this since it involves special privileges for CHP holders. and decided to see what the wording in the bill is before taking a position.

    Excuse me Sir, I see you're about to do a prefrontal Lobotomy, are you a Doctor?
    Why..no, but I have a CHP.
    Well...that's OK then!

    forgot to add this to my post, but even though I'm against the "CHP-only" idea, I'd still back any college-carry bill that keeps universities from taking action against those who carry, as long as the bill doesn't criminalize the other methods of carry (as right now it is NOT illegal).

    I agree 100%. That's why we're taking a wait and see, approach.
