Gun Dealer Speaks at Empty Holster Protest

According to the Associated Press, the online dealer who sold one of the guns used in the Virginia Tech shootings spoke at the campus last night at the behest of the group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

This coincides with the SCCC's Empty Holster Protest:

During the week of April 21-25, 2008, thousands of college students throughout the United States, organized under the banner of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC), will attend classes wearing empty holsters, in protest of state laws and school policies that stack the odds in favor of dangerous criminals and armed killers by disarming law abiding citizens licensed to carry concealed handguns virtually everywhere else.

Thompson said donations from his online customers helped pay for the purchase of “hundreds” of holsters for use in the protests.
