This week students across the country are strapping on holsters and going to campus.
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus organized empty holster protests at many colleges.
Students at James Madison University joined the protest.
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus wanted to protest current college policies. JMU's policy prevents students from carrying firearms on campus.
Students with SCCC wanted everyone to see that they have no way to protect themselves.
“It helps people visualize what we are dealing with,” said President of the JMU chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus Chris Kichinko. “JMU's weapons policy, and most of Virginia's public universities, completely disarm you. The only that we can have in the way of self defense is a knife less than three inches.”
The empty holster protest isn't the only activity happening this week.
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is hosting speakers from the National Rifle Association and the Virginia Citizens Defense League.
