     A group of University of Kentucky students calling themselves the UK chapter of the Students for Conceal Carry say they want to overturn a university policy that prohibits students and faculty from carrying guns onto campus.

     The SCC feels if students were able to carry their conceal guns into class it would help prevent school shootings in the future.

     University officials say they've reviewed their policy multiple times over the years and feel that not allowing conceal carry on campus makes the school safer.

     The UK chapter of the SCC says they plan to lobby ever state lawmaker in the state they can, as often as they can until UK's policy is changed.
