On the same day that a gunman killed seven students at a small California Christian university, hundreds of college students across the nation went to class wearing empty holsters on their hips.
The message was part of Students for Concealed Carrys weeklong Empty Holster Protest, an event designed to encourage universities to allow students, faculty and administrators to carry concealed weapons on campus.

So you see, in posting the original release from SCC earlier today that was moved to “Bloggers & Personal”, I was trying to give Free Republic the scoop, not pimp a personal blog. But it’s all good.

My personal rule: If I can’t carry concealed there, I don’t go there. No exceptions.
Students Not Pretending Criminals Cancel Plans Due to Posted Signage...
just isn’t as catchy as Students for Concealed Carry, is it?
Thanks for the ping.
When the argument related to the events at the Korean Christian Nursing School in Oakland turns to guns on campus, I hope it will be loudly explained that guns were not allowed on campus or anywhere else in Oakland for that matter. The shooter broke the gun laws already in place.
Someone who knows more about local Oakland, CA law can expand with details on this thought (or correct them). I lived near San Fran years ago and visited a gun shop in the area once. That’s all I needed to realize I wouldn’t be purchasing anything for self defense that included a sharp edge or balistic projectiles.
Kinda hard to renew your CCWL, then.
Okay; ONE exception. But, THAT’S IT!
But ironic, too.
