David Jenkins wore an empty black holster Thursday at the University of Central Oklahoma, protesting a state law prohibiting firearms on campus. The political science student objects that he can't carry his .380 caliber Ruger pistol at school even though he has a concealed carry permit and usually takes the handgun wherever he goes, including church. He is participating in a protest organized by Students for Concealed Carry on Campus and taking place at universities across the country this week. The national group says concealed weapons could be needed for protection in extreme circumstances, like a school shooting.
