    Concealed carry classes offered on college campus !!!

    Who'd ever thought this would happen? Surely college professors are fainting from coast to coast.

    These are apparently non-credit classes, but nonetheless the classes are held/offered by a local college. Classroom instruction on the college campus; firing range is off-campus.

    Very interesting it makes me want to move to Louisiana.........uh wait, wait.... I'm already in Louisiana!

    Press release I saw today on the "internet news":

    NSU to offer Conceal Carry class
    Participants must be 21 or older
    David West03/11/2014

    NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education will offer a Louisiana Concealed Carry Class on Saturday, March 15. The class is for those age 21 or older who want to obtain a Louisiana concealed handgun permit.


    The course will be from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. in South Hall on the Northwestern State campus and at the Natchitoches Shooting Range. The cost is $110 plus a shooting range fee.

    Montgomery Police Chief Kevin Billiot will teach the class which will cover pistol shooting fundamentals, safe handling, use of force laws and related topics.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Yep! There are a few community colleges in Tennessee that offer the courses. Better still......in Knox County, Tennessee the Sheriff's Office offers one to citizens and utilizes the SO's facility. That has to make a bunch of folks on the other side of this arguement a little red-faced.

    The carry class has been offered here on a college campus for years now.

    I wish they just get their own range now. THAT would be a step in the right direction for sure.

    My alma mater has a shooting range on campus, and offers different shooting disciplines for PE credit. I was able to take rifle, pistol, and trap courses for my undergraduate PE credits.

    IIRC, the pistol class met requirements for the CHL training, although I had already had my CHL by then, so I didn't really take note if it did or not.

    These are actually college classes listed in the book of classes for that term, and not just some seminar offered up at the campus because they had available space?

    If so, that's a good thing. Somewhat surprising, given the anti-gunner changes in the past 40yrs, but a good thing.

    At some colleges - yes they are actually courses, WITH credit. Others, it is more a facility usage for the purpose. Baby steps, but going in the right direction.

    Anything going in the right direction is better than going in the wrong direction like we did for quite a while not so long ago. We are making headway for a change as whole in this nation on gun rights. Not fast enough for sure. And reclaiming ever so slowly rights that we should never have lost in the first place.

    Ill never live to see it I dont think but I look forward to the day ALL gun regulation is seen for what it was and is. Useless infringement proven over an over to not only fail but make things worse for law abiding citizens.

    Unless we get lazy, or dont use this momentum to push just as hard or harder the antis do from just as an unmovable stance as they assume, we can reach that day in one way or another.

    Here they are called "Continuing Education", and you get no credit for taking them, no mention on one's college transcript. I'd say they are basically "fun" courses for citizens of the community. I've seen advertised.....beginners guitar, genealogy, notary public, C&W dance, etc.

    IDK if there is much admission process, tests, or certificate. Pretty much show up, sign your name, pay a bit of money.

    I'm pretty sure the classes aren't listed in "the" College Catalogue; in fact I think I've seen where Continuing Education puts out their own catalogue each year

    The firearms portion of my Law Enforcement Skills class qualified as a MN CCW class, a fact which was stated by the instructors at the time we started. If you wanted to do the permit with that class, you just needed to do an online test at the end and pay $30. This was at a Minnesota state community/technical college, and the class is taught for credit.

    I'm very glad to see it! When I saw "NSU" I first thought "Nichols State University" in Thibodaux. Maybe they'll be next! Either way glad we're getting CCW classes in the schools here.

    Now we're talking. It's about time classes with practical application were once again offered in higher education.

    Heck, we've been doing that at my university (McNeese State) since LA passed their CHL law, way back in 1996. I did them for about 10 years and then let someone else take over. A very popular class in the Leisure Learning department. And you might be surprised at the number of college professors that take the course. The university in general gets a bad rap because the big schools are rather liberal, but when you get into the smaller institutions they are often far more conservative. In fact, one of the top gunsmithing programs in the country is done on a college campus. In addition to the Leisure Learning CHL class here I also do a for-credit academic class on Self Defense Issues.
