Pro-gun journalist and radio host Dana Loesch has canceled a book signing at Texas Christian University citing their prohibition on firearms and lack of security as the reasoning.
According to Loesch’s blog:
Regrettably, today’s signing event for Hands Off My Gun at the TCU Bookstore from 2-3:30 central is canceled. I was really looking forward to this but unfortunately am uncomfortable gambling with my own, my family’s, or readers/listeners’s security.
For my past few signings the venue or my affiliate station provided security as I cannot afford to hire people to carry my gun (while pretending to be anti-gun, as Moms Demand does).
We just found out this afternoon that TCU is unable to provide security and because it is a gun-free zone, I am prohibited from lawful carry in place of that security.
Loesch goes on to recall an incident in which a man became violent at a prior event and the threats she regularly receives on social media as further reasons she would not feel safe being unprotected.
Loesch recently released her new book entitled “Hands Off My Gun” and has been promoting it at various events.
Loesch currently hosts a daily, nationally syndicated radio show as well as a weekly television show on Glen Beck’s TheBlaze TV station.
