To all University students:

WE NEED YOUR HELP in gaining support for our cause. What cause is that, you ask? Getting states or universities to allow concealed carry on campus. I am the Miami U. (Ohio, not Florida) representative of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC). Back in the spring, a friend of mine who is the rep for U. of Cincinnati had the great idea of holding an empty holster protest to show that state laws and/or university policies have reduced CHL holders to just that: empty holsters.

But we need your help. We have an event listed on facebook http://facebook.com/event.php?eid=2359003596 but last time I checked there were only about 70-80 confirmed individuals. Wear an empty holster (OWB, shoulder, something visible that looks like a holster!) during the week of Oct. 22 (that's 10/22) and wear it ALL WEEK! The point is that we want to generate debate! We want our classmates to ask us why we're wearing holsters! We want to let people know how responsible CHL holders, how they've gone through background checks, training, etc. and that we don't go around shooting people for the hell of it.

Send me a PM if you need an invite to the event or if you have any questions about the protest or SCCC and what you can do to help.

Beg, borrow, or steal a holster! You don't even have to have a CHL but as long as you support the rights of licensed individuals then we need your help! If someone asks you if you have a CHL and you don't want to answer honestly, lie!

Please make sure you're signed up on it. We're near 100 folks so far, but I accidentally deleted 10-15 folks who ARE attending while I was taking out those who aren't.

Sorry but in PA its not against any law for one to carry on college property. It is just a school rule. If they ask you to leave the property once it is uncovered that you are carrying and you refuse then you are tresspassing. Depending on the school(State funded U) its questionble whether the rule is even applicable. My attorney believes he could make the argument. However i hope it never comes to that. The worst they could do is attempt to expel me.

I will not wear an empty holster exposed and create debate. I do not draw attention to myself. Not a single individual on campus knows I even own a firearm let alone carry one daily. I will let the sheep be sheep, carry concealed and go about my business as usual.

Your choice. If you read the original post, we're against University policies that prohibit it too. No one's asking you to admit you own a gun or that you have a CHL. Gun ownership and a CCW license are NOT prerequisites to believe that college students should be allowed to carry on school without fear of legal backlash and/or disciplinary action.
