15 Rebels gathered in the UNLV Student Union on Tuesday, April 15th for the University’s inaugural Students for Concealed Carry Chapter meeting.  ADAPT Academy CEO and Director of Training, Eric Loden, was in attendance as an Academic Advisor along with Assemblywoman, and longtime gun rights advocate, Michelle Fiore, and representatives of the Nevada Firearms Coalition Education and Training Division. 

 

The meeting was kicked off with introductions by Chapter President Alex Murdock and Vice President/Co-founder Zachary Guymon. The two discussed the purpose of the chapter and their emphasis on gun safety and firearms education and training.

 

Loden spoke next about his credentials in the firearms industry as well as his own story of petitioning then Community College of Southern Nevada leadership to carry when he studied Criminal Justice at the College in 2009.

 

“ADAPT is proud to see a Chapter of Students for Concealed Carry at UNLV. It is vitally important that the future leaders of our community, just like every other citizen in the state, have the right to protect themselves while they seek out a higher education.” Said Loden. “Gun free zones are not only dangerous but they violate the constitutional rights of over 100,000 Nevada students and employees.”

 

Students then heard from Assemblywoman Fiore who commended the creation of the Chapter and explained the history of AB 143, the Campus Carry Bill, as well as her desire for the legislation to achieve bipartisan support in the upcoming 2015 session. Fiore’s passion for this bill was illustrated when she recounted Amanda Collins’ campus rape story and the subsequent Reno murder of Brianna Dennison.

 

Next, the students engaged in a lively Q&A discussion to ask how they can better help support good gun policies in the state as well as a unanimous decision by the group to participate in regular firearms training events with ADAPT. The Chapter agreed to meet bimonthly for on campus discussions to move the Chapter forward as well as an off campus meeting each month at a local shooting range.
