Empty Holsters: A Video by FIRE

This video was produced by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education .

Courts and legislatures across the country are deciding whether students and professors can carry guns on campus--but your university might be preventing you from being part of the debate.

Since more than 30 people were murdered at Virginia Tech, debate has raged over guns on campus. Yet, on far too many campuses, FIRE sees censorship instead of real discussions about the merits of permitting students and professors to be armed. These are the stories of students who joined the battle of ideas in order to debate issues of personal safety--and ended up fighting to maintain their First Amendment rights.
