Pittsburgh Community College Approves Concealed Weapons Group
February 17, 2010A Pittsburgh-area community college will let a student form a campus chapter of a group that promotes the rights of students to carry concealed weapons.
A Community College of Allegheny County spokesman says Christa Brashier must provide a copy of the group's revised constitution by March.
Brashier threatened to sue after school officials, at first, refused to let her pass out leaflets advocating concealed carry rights in May. After getting permission, she pressed forward with her efforts to form a local chapter of a Texas-based nonprofit, Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.
Brashier's efforts have been backed by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and the American Civil Liberties Union.
