Freedom of expression vs. Class disruption

Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is currently holding a nationwide protest at 300 colleges, including UT-Arlington.

Protesters are wearing empty holsters to class April 21-25.

“These empty holsters are designed to show the current state laws and campus policies leave students defenseless, with nothing but an empty holster,” Brett Poulos, a South Campus student and a national media liaison for SCCC, said in an e-mail to The Collegian.
The protest is planned on South Campus. TCC is allowing the group the use a free speech zone but not allowing them to wear holsters on campus.

I know it is passed April 21-25, but feel free to discuss.

I don't see what good a concealed handgun license does if you can't carry it everywhere. How is that protecting anyone?

It's BS to not allow students to wear empty holsters.

This will help everyone out, check it.
It is time we acknowledged a basic feature of human discourse: when considering the truth of a proposition, one is either engaged in an honest appraisal of the evidence and logical arguments, or one is not. Religion is the one area of our lives where people imagine that some other standard of intellectual integrity applies.

You are spot on as usual!
Glad you noticed the first time in recorded history a group of students spoke up!

"The Father-heart of God was... thrilled with me -- an immature, mess-making spiritual infant... My heavenly Father was enjoying me while I was yet in the process of maturing, not sighing in disgust and waiting impatiently until I grew up. He loved and longed for me; He felt proud and was excited over me while I was falling short."
