The national organization, known as Students for Concealed Carry (SCC), consists of "more than 43,000 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 current laws afford them virtually everywhere else" according to their website. The organization was formed after the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007.
