Richmonders on both sides of the gun debate made their voices heard on Jan. 29 at the Richmond Times-Dispatch’s “Public Square Forum,” a monthly discussion between the public and experts on topics of public interest.

Audience members were barred from bringing firearms to the forum but members of the VCU chapter of Students for Concealed Carry attended the forum. The group started at VCU in 2009 to promote the idea of students and faculty members having the right to carry a concealed weapon on campus if they have a permit.
