Just saw this on Facebook. (Yeah, I know, half of you just went Facewhat? but it's a much 'classier' and organized version of MySpace--in a nutshell)

Description
Students who are already concealed carry license holders in many states are forced to disarm when coming to school, even though we are allowed to go nearly anywhere else in the state while armed. We want to extend our ability to protect ourselves and those around us onto campus, where we spend a majority of our time.

Wear an empty holster to class all week to demonstrate that you are just one more trained individual that is forced to disarm, showing that there is one less person to defend yourself and those in your immediate proximity on campus in a worst case scenario.

Even those who do not have a license but support the cause are strongly encouraged to participate. Power in numbers, and a nation of students concerned about their safety is a strong message from a lot of people.


PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT TRYING TO PUT A GUN IN EVERY STUDENT'S HANDS!!! We are simply saying that those who are already legally licensed should have the right to defend themselves where they spend the majority of their time, on campus. Concealed Handgun License holders have a proven track record of being some of the most peaceful members of society, and we've also been cleared of any mental instabilities or dependencies on any drug/alcohol in addition to passing one of the harshest background checks a civilian will ever encounter. WE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE WHO KILL OTHERS, we are people preparing for the worst, with a hope for the best.

This is a NON-VIOLENT protest. A holster has never killed anybody, it is just a holder, much like many people's cell phone holsters. We are simply doing this to show that where ever we are, there would have been at least one person to resist against a murderer, that is all. Yes, we will be taking the proper communication with the respective Universities to make sure that there is no confusion that this is a NON-VIOLENT protest.

We are also currently working with Springfield Armory to attempt to get sponsored with XD Gear holsters for those who are in need of one.
