Protesting "Gun-Free" Zones

A group called the Students for Concealed Carry on College Campuses (SCCCC) plans to protest the folly of "gun-free" zones:

During the week of October 22-26, 2007, college students throughout America will attend classes wearing empty holsters, in protest of state laws and campus policies that stack the odds in favor of armed killers by disarming law abiding citizens who are licensed to carry concealed handguns virtually everywhere else.

How effective will this protest be? John Lott gets to the heart of the matter here. Assuming these students are able to coordinate their efforts, it could be a watershed event in the push for gun rights on campus.

It might even inject some much-needed reality into the broader debate about guns and crime.
