Video: Student Wearing Empty Holster Cited For ‘Threatening The Safety Of Campus’

A University of South Alabama student was cited for “causing alarm” by wearing an empty holster on campus.

Two University of South Alabama students were confronted by campus police Wednesday, and one student was cited for “causing alarm” by wearing an empty holster.

“This week is the empty holster protest for Students for Concealed Carry in Alabama to demonstrate that students are defenseless on campus,” D.J. Parten, president of Students for Concealed Carry, told Campus Reform. Along with fellow club member Kenneth Tews, Parten was also promoting an upcoming screening of the movie Can We Take a Joke? when three campus police officers approached their table demanding identification.

“You need permission from the university.”

Video footage, obtained by Campus Reform, shows one of the police officers asking to search the students, and when they exercise their right to refuse, another officer becoming aggravated and warning that he will find something to charge them with if they remain uncooperative—a threat that is eventually carried out against Parten.

The school’s website states that “all weapons are prohibited in University housing buildings, parking lots, and on University property” adding that “this includes, but is not limited to, bullets, ball bearing bullets, bullet balls, pellets, firearms, guns, knives, paintball guns, air guns, hunting bows, archery bows, swords, martial arts weapons, and replicas of such weapons. Toy and water guns are prohibited.”

Note: Freedom Daily attended CPAC this year. We visited Turning Point USA’s awesome “Big Government Sucks” booth. One of the students, D.J. Parten, had on one of their stickers. This is a fun loving bunch of young’uns as you can see by the video we shot! We wish D.J. well!
