The new law, passed last year by Texas’s Republican-dominated legislature, came into effect on the 50th anniversary of the [Texas tower] massacre. It permits licensed gun owners aged 21 and older to carry concealed handguns in most places on public university campuses, including dorms and classrooms.Many Texans choose to attend the tuition-friendly University of Arkansas, where — despite Rep. Charlie Collins' undying efforts — concealed weapons remain unsanctioned. Dildos? Don't know.
Demonstrators gathered to brandish sex toys in the air or strap them to their backpacks.
“We have crazy laws here but this is by far the craziest, that you can’t bring a dildo on to campus legally but you can bring your gun. We’re just trying to fight absurdity with absurdity,” said Rosie Zander, a 20-year-old history student.
