This seminar takes an unblinking look at implications of the campus carry legislation being proposed in state legislatures throughout the country. If passed, these bills would allow persons who have qualified for and been issued a license to carry a concealed handgun to do so in schools or on college campuses. The seminar's objective is to provide you with the facts you need to decide if these laws would, as their supporters claim, be common sense deterrents and effective countermeasures to active shooter incidents, or if they would instead present a new and deadly danger as maintained by their opponents.


This seminar is designed for college, university, and school administrators who set policy, police command and field supervisory officers, security managers and supervisors who manage protective operations, and faculty members and students who are concerned with safety on campus and the impact passage of campus carry legislation would have on their lives.
