Notification Letter for Campus Administrators and Campus Police:

(This letter should be sent, via both email and registered or certified mail, to the campus administrators and campus police at each school that will have students participating in the Empty Holster Protest.  Notification letters and emails should be sent no later than Wednesday, October 17, 2007.)



To Whom It May Concern:

            During the week of October 22-26, students on the campus of (NAME OF SCHOOL) will be joining college students across the nation in peacefully protesting against state laws and campus policies which prohibit concealed handgun license holders from carrying their concealed firearms on college campuses.  We believe that licensed individuals legally permitted to carry concealed handguns virtually everywhere else in the state of (NAME OF STATE WHERE SCHOOL IS LOCATED), from office buildings to movie theaters, should be allowed the same measure of personal security on college campuses.

            This will be a peaceful protest.  The nature of the protest will be limited to students wearing T-shirts and EMPTY holsters.  The significance of the empty holsters is to symbolize that students, faculty, and guests are left defenseless on college campuses; therefore, no protestor will carry anything resembling a firearm in his or her holster.  Protestors will not carry signs or banners, and nobody will make any attempt to disturb the peace.  Protestors will simply go about their daily routines while wearing holsters which, in both appearance and function, differ only slightly from cell phone holsters.
