Letter: Students For Concealed Carry Protest Anti-Gun Laws
USC students for concealed carry are participating in the empty holster protest again this year. It runs all of this week. We have seen quite a few students around campus wearing empty holsters to show that law abiding citizens are defenseless at school.
Many states allow campus carry and have not seen any increase in violence, in fact many have seen a marked decrease in violence. South Carolina pretends that it is a leader in personal freedom, yet we have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the south.
We are just asking for the same right to defend ourselves that we exercise almost anywhere else in the state.
There are a number of empty holster pictures on our Facebook page, feel free to use any we’ve shared.
