Say goodbye to blazers with elbow patches and year-round flip flops. These guys see campus as a war zone. Currently concealed weapons are not allowed on NC State’s campus but an organization’s representatives will be wearing empty holsters this week in protest. Did it ever occur to them that empty holsters look like non-empty holsters? Makes sense that some vigilante justice would help in times of true crisis like Virginia Tech’s incident, but hormonal teens running around with guns on campus is not my idea of a safe environment.
Ever seen the damage a couple of drunk frat boys can do without guns? In any case it seems these kids are really scared, really scared and carrying a gun is the only way to make them feel safe. A reader points out that “The Delicate Art of the Rifle” was filmed at NCSU in 1996; how appropriate.
The NCSU Chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus has organized an empty holster event that will take place next week. The event will run from February 9th through the 13th, and is taking place on campuses in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
We will be carrying empty holsters in plain view throughout the week. If you have any questions about concealed carry, concealed carry on campus, or have comments, we welcome them.
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus advocate Second Amendment Rights of citizens being honored on campus as they are already done so off of campus. If you feel the same, please join us in our empty holster event.
