A number of college campus shootings over the past year have many UNCW students concerned. Some of those students want people with gun permits to be able to carry their guns on campus. Interested students want to join more than 25,000 people who are part of the national organization Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

Fatal shootings at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University are examples of why UNCW student Tyler Millage and others want concealed weapons allowed on campus. Millage said, "In the hands of responsible citizens, there's no danger from handguns."

This week, from Monday to Friday, the 25,000 members of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus will carry empty holsters, in sign of protest against the law that forbids students to carry concealed guns on campus.
The demonstration will be peaceful, assured Nathan Robinson, a UT senior.

Demonstrators are not supposed to carry signs and banners or disturb the peace in any way. They will only wear empty holsters, T-shirts and share fliers.

"It's a week-long protest," said Robinson. "It's not something where you pick a place and stand with picket signs."

"Those of us who carry concealed -- we pay tuition so that we cannot have the same rights as everyone else," Miller said. "Because I pay tuition and am a member of this school, I have fewer rights than (visitors to the Tech campus who aren't students)."

To show his disagreement with this policy, Miller is participating in the Empty Holster Protest that Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is holding this week. For the week of Monday, April 21 through Friday, April 25, participants in the protest will wear empty gun holsters around campus and to all their classes. SCCC is a national organization that was created after April 16, 2007.

If Eric Stein gets his way, students at Kansas University would be allowed to bring concealed weapons to campus — so long as they have the proper state permit.

Stein, a Topeka junior, is the president of the local chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, which has organized a nationwide “Empty Holsters” protest for this week. The campaign involves members of SCCC wearing their holsters to class and on campus — but without guns — as a visual reminder that concealed carry on campus is illegal, which members of the group object.

From Monday to Friday this week, the 25,000 members of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus will wear empty holsters to protest laws that deny students the right to carry concealed guns on campus.

The protest closely follows the first anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings and comes at a time when nine states are considering legislation on the matter. According to CNN.com, Utah is the only state to allow weapons at all public universities, and Colorado allows guns at all public colleges except the University of Colorado-Boulder campus.

KRIS 6 News was the only station to tell you about the national protest organized by a group called Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. 6 News spoke with members of the group at TAMCC on Monday about why they feel it is important to have concealed handguns on college campuses.
Armed with his backpack and an empty holster, student Cody Smiley worked to get the word out about why the members of the group are strapping up this week.

Smiley told KRIS, "We're basically saying that we want the right of all people that are over the age of 21 that already have a concealed handgun license to be allowed to carry in class so that tragedies like Virginia Tech might be averted in the future.

Four other people were inside the white, two-story home at the time of the shooting including Grant's wife, Wendy Pelkey-Grant, her two children Alyssia Pelkey, 21, and Eric Hall, 18, as well as Alyssia Pelkey's boyfriend, Glen Rathjen, police said.

However, no one has been arrested in the case and, if the witnesses' claims that Pelkey-Grant shot her husband in defense of her children is confirmed, there might not be any charges in the case.

"We're definitely looking at self-defense," Oliver said early in the day.

University officials say Tiopa did the right thing, using one of four techniques officials plan to teach in the course.

”Lockdown, hide if it’s possible, run if you have to, or play dead. Those are generally the four options,” said San Jose State Spokeswoman Pat Lopes Harris.

The fifth option is to attack the attacker. There will be more details on that option in the self-defense course, which will be offered in the fall.

Ed.: And of course the sixth option: pull out a concealed pistol, kill the rampaging lunatic, save countless lives, then beg for the mercy of the court.

Just before Dennis Hyde died, he said to one of the Akron police officers who had just used a Taser on him: 'Thank you. Thank you. You are sending me home.'

Whether the Taser shocks contributed to the death of Hyde — and two other Akron men in separate incidents — is the central question in a civil case this week in Summit County Common Pleas Court.

The Taser International Co. is suing Summit County Medical Examiner Lisa Kohler, who ruled the use of the stun gun-like weapons were a contributing factor in the deaths.

Akron still has police officers using Tasers. The city is siding with the company against the county, which is defending Kohler.

In the last year, there have been seven campus shootings which have made students at Idaho State University take action. They're holding a silent protest this week to represent their inability to carry concealed weapons on campus. Members of the group called Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, or the SCCC, said it's a nationwide protest.

Jared Harward is studying law enforcement at Idaho State University and will enter into the law enforcement program next year. But, for today, he's ...

MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- A Moscow court on Monday sentenced a U.S. pastor to more than three years in prison for smuggling hunting ammunition into Russia.

Phillip Miles, from South Carolina, has been in custody since his arrest on Feb. 3. He was arrested several days after customs agents at a Moscow airport found a box of 20 rifle shells in his luggage.

The court sentenced him to serve three years and two months in prison, with the sentence calculated from his detention date.

Miles has said he brought the .300 caliber cartridges for a friend who had recently bought a Winchester rifle. He said he did not know bringing such ammunition into Russia was illegal.

Hartford police officers recovered about 400 illegally acquired firearms last year. Those weapons didn't pop up out of thin air. People who owned or had access to legal firearms either lost them or sold them to convicted criminals, the mentally ill and other people who were unauthorized to own guns. Many violent urban crimes and college campus shootings could be prevented if Congress would pass laws to impose foolproof methods of stopping legal guns from getting into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, efforts to pass such laws are often thwarted by the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby on grounds that they would violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

An Oakland liquor-store owner shot and injured a would-be robber who shot him, the second incident in two days in which employees have fought back, police said.

At about 9:55 p.m. Saturday, a man walked into Ed's Liquors at 2700 23rd Avenue and pointed a gun at the store owner while going behind the counter, police said. The owner pulled out a weapon of his own, but the assailant shot him first in the leg, police said.

The store owner then fired back, hitting the man at least three times, police said.

In Baghdad, Rice calls al-Sadr a coward

BAGHDAD - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Baghdad on Sunday for an unannounced visit one day after the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr threatened an all-out war against the Iraqi government.

Rice used her visit to praise al-Maliki's choice to take on the militia.

"But, clearly, the prime minister has laid down some ground rules which any functioning democratic state would insist upon, having to do with, you know, arms belonging to the state, not to -- not in private hands," she said. "The current circumstances come out of what I think is a very important and indeed appropriate action that the Iraqi government has taken."

Ed.: Yep, she sounds anti-gun enough to fit right in with McCain.

Hundreds of people attended the Gun Show at the State Fairgrounds this weekend. It's been held in Syracuse twice a year for at least fifty years. Central New Yorkers had the chance to buy and sell guns and gun parts, as well as get information on fire arms. Even though you could buy guns there, the NYS Arms Collectors Association is very strict on the law.
 

Gun event aims to make women friends of firearms: NRA-funded day focuses on sport

It's hard to say exactly how long it had been since Claire Davis last fired a loaded gun. But the Raleigh retiree guesses she hadn't pulled a trigger at least since Jimmy Carter occupied the White House and AMC Gremlins roamed the highways. Davis was one of dozens of area women lured away from their Sunday morning routines to give guns a chance. Officially, the National Rifle Association-funded event at the Sir Walter Gun Club, a private range near Creedmoor, was about fun and bonding. But the sessions on safety and responsibility provided a competing narrative to the controversy that erupts over guns after each shooting spree in an American shopping mall or college campus.

The controversial law, aimed at reducing the number of children killed by handguns through accidents, suicide or acts of violence, had one very big caveat: It would not go into effect until the state was convinced these futuristic "smart guns" actually work.

Today, after gun manufacturers, engineering firms and research universities have spent millions competing to perfect the weapon, the quest has wandered onto the slow track.

Students from the SUNYIT Telecom program are working on a feasibility study about a gunshot location system for selected parts of Utica. With the shooting death of Utica Police Officer Thomas Lindsey and other shootings in the area, the gunshot location system would provide the Utica Police Department with cutting-edge technology, while assisting in saving lives and reducing gun-related violence.

Ed.:These same type of systems are vehicle-mounted in Iraq to help our troops determine where the snipers are shooting at them from.
