Students for Concealed Carry will
be offering a concealed carry class
through the Wisconsin Concealed
Carry, LLC this semester.
Students for Concealed Carry is a
non-politically affiliated organization
dedicated to restoring Second
Amendment rights to lawful students
on campus. They believe in legal
concealed carry on campus for self-
Brock Majkowski, President of the
group, says that their main goal is to
come together and educate students,
faculty and staff on campus about the
new concealed carry law.
“We also want to educate how
to properly go about applying for
a permit for carrying in Wisconsin.
We are an informative group and
we want to try to push for a policy
change on campus in the long run,”
The organization will be offering
the class at a discounted rate
compared to what businesses charge
for similar classes.
“I think that the concealed carry
class is a great idea because there
aren’t many offered in the Stevens
Point area and it is a good way for
students to learn the fundamentals of
concealed carry,” said Nick Burns, the
vice president of the group.
The class is set up like every other
concealed carry class and will last
about half a day.
“It’s kind of going to be like
a university class, where they talk
to you and let you know what the
rules, regulations and laws are and
then there’s going to be a question
part and then a hands on portion
with unloaded firearms to familiarize
students with loading and unloading
in a safe manner,” Majkowski said.
The concealed carry class allows
for 25 to 30 people so that they can
keep it personable. If they don’t getenough students and faculty to sign
up for the class, they are going to be
offering it to the public as well.
Majkowski became interested
in concealed carry right before he
“I really wanted to get involved
knowing that once I turned 21, with
the new law in Wisconsin, I’d be
able to carry and exercise my right to
carry in Wisconsin,” Majkowski said.
“I wanted to do something bigger
than just myself and help others who
may be unfamiliar or a little scared to
carry or ask questions.”
Burns felt the same way.
“I wanted to be in a leadership
role within Students for Concealed
Carry because I want to educate
people about their constitutional
rights,” Burns said.
Mjkowski and Burns hope to
expand the group in the future, get
more people to join, and spread the
word to let people know that they
have a right to defend themselves.
“Technically inside campus
buildings it’s a gun free zone. We have
a small campus police department
and, God forbid anything happened,
I would hope that we’d be able to
defend ourselves,” Majkowski said.
“I’m hoping in the future we can
get the no guns allowed signs taken
down. We’ll go about that with the
school process of getting it okayed
through student government and
all the other student associations
Students that are interested in
the concealed carry class can go on
the Students for Concealed Carry
Facebook page and send a message
to get placed on the list.
The date of the class is still being
decided, but will take place on a
weekend in Oct. or Nov. this semester.
“I believe that any students that
are licensed to carry a concealed
weapon should not have their right
to self-defense taken away from them
within campus buildings,” Burns said
