TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida Students for Concealed Carry at FSU is hosting an informational session on the campus carry law Monday evening.

Their mission is to educate students and staff about the conceal carry laws in Florida and campus-carry laws in other states and how they've worked out there.

The organization's president says there will be a discussion about the common misconceptions about campus carry and will try to dispel those myths.

He also acknowledges that the view is one sided but is still important to give all the facts.

"People have the right to self defense, the right to bear arms, Florida has the ability to restrict that if they can provide a really compelling case and we just don't simply think that they provide a compelling case," said Steven Landgraf, the organization's president. "We don't think that the campus carry ban makes anyone safer here and we think that we should have the right to carry on campus

If the campus carry ban is overturned the group wants to work with President Thrasher and other administrators to help make the campus safer.
