UC Davis students forms local SCCC chapter

Another Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, this one in Californistan:
DAVIS - To some observers, incidents like the Virginia Tech shooting of 2007 prove the need for tighter gun control. But to a growing group of students, such tragedies show that people on college campuses should be allowed to arm themselves for protection against school shooters. UC Davis psychology major Brendan Chan says such protection is "crucial in the minute or so that it takes police officers to respond." Chan is forming a local chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, a national organization lobbying for change in campus gun regulations.

Article here. Efforts like this in anti-gun states like California face even more of an uphill battle in getting changes to the law than similar efforts underway in states like Texas. Naturally, California currently prohibits those who obey the law (and only those who obey the law) from carrying loaded guns on campus.
