College OKs ‘empty holster’ protest

Young Americans for Liberty will hold an “empty holster” protest against gun control at Florida’s Santa Fe College, despite opposition by campus police. President Jackson Sasser acknowledged YAL’s free speech rights, after receiving a letter from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).  The “First Amendment is of paramount importance to our mission to educate students and prepare them to be leaders in our society,” Sasser wrote.

Tarrant County College in Texas refused to allow a similar protest for two years. Students sued and won, costing the college $240,000 in legal fees.
