Understated Activism

If you notice students sporting empty holsters on the University of Tennessee campus today, it's likely the sign of a protest, not a lost handgun.
This was organized by the national student group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. It's an interesting idea and I like it.

The only problem with pursuing this sort of thing is that concealed carry on college campuses is bound to be less effective than with the general public. Why? Because buying, possessing, and carrying handguns is much more difficult for people under 21. That's most of the undergraduate student body. But hey, if I was 21 I'd still want to be able to do it.
