University of Alaska Empty Holster Protest

From the Anchorage 2nd Amendment Task Force:

It has been brought to my attention that Students for Concealed Carry (SCC) is promoting an Empty Holster Protest to begin Monday, April 7 and extend thru Friday, April 11. This is a peaceful  means to raise awareness for the violation of self-protection rights on public land across the country. 
Recently one of our own, Hans Rodvik, helped draft SB 176, a bill reinforcing our right to lawfully carry a weapon on public school campuses in Alaska. Be mindful of this ongoing effort to protect your rights, which in turn allow you to help protect yourself.
Please support the effort by participating in this peaceful protest. However, please keep in mind two things:
-Do NOT place anything in the holster. We don't want to send the wrong message, or unnecessarily worry anyone.
-Stay educated on the legal paradox of barring lawful carry on public grounds. This is your 2nd amendment right, not to mention an explicit right in the State constitution.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and please help us get the word out and raise awareness on campus carry rights violations.
In Liberty,
