Law School & College Students Invited to National Firearms Law Seminar
Any Campus, USA –-(Ammoland.com)- The NRA Foundation has invited SCCC members to attend its 14th Annual National Firearms Law Seminar this year (April 29, 2011) in Pittsburgh. All current law school and college students will be admitted free of charge.
I was able to attend last year, and I can report that the annual firearms symposium is an outstanding experience.
Speakers this year include a representative from the FBI office of general counsel as well as the ATF’s chief counsel. In addition to the speakers, last year about 300 lawyers specializing in firearms law attended this event .
You would be hard pressed to find any other room so packed with legal talent when it comes to the issues relating to firearms and the law. This year proves to follow this model.
This event should also prove to be an excellent networking opportunity for those interested in entering the firearms legal field.
The seminar is taking place during the same weekend as the NRA annual meeting. The NRA meeting includes a trade show similar (but smaller in scale) to the SHOT show.
Registration details are at www.nrafoundation.org/lawseminar. When registering, make sure to note that you are a current college / law student (along with your school), and that you heard about this offer from the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. Spaces are limited, so if you are interested, please make sure to register soon.
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) is a national, non-partisan, grassroots organization comprising over 44,000 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. SCCC has members in all fifty states and the District of Columbia. SCCC is not affiliated with the NRA or any other organization. SCCC extends an open invitation to publicly debate representatives from any organization or institution opposed to “campus carry.” Visit: www.concealedcampus.org
Tom, when we speak about freedom, we speak in the context of restraints on the power of government to abrogate our liberties. To be sure, you have a right to be free from the wrongful acts of others; that is why governments are instituted among men in the first place. However, when the government takes away your right to defend yourself from the wrongful acts of others, no one wins.
The NRA spokespeople love to prattle on about "freedom". Let me explain something to you: A people who live in mortal terror wondering when and where the next massacre of innocents will take place may be many things – no argument there. "Free" they are not. Let's just stop kidding ourselves here and now, okay?
Get used to living in a country in ruins.
