This week some Tech students will join the national "Empty Holster Protest." Students will wear their empty holsters into classrooms all week to push for changes in legislation that would allow them to carry in classrooms.
"Students for Concealed Carry on Campus" was created after the Virginia Tech shooting. Members say carrying their handguns is for self defense.
"God forbid something like that happens here at Texas Tech but we do have other incidents and things that being able to carry on campus would prevent," says Peter Farr, Tech campus leader for Concealed Carry on Campus.
