Texas students protest campus carry

This past summer Texas passed an open carry law that allowed students to carry guns on school campuses. This inspired Univeristy of Texas at Austin students to create a protest to counter the new law called Campus (Dildo) Carry.  And thus, students are adding sex toys to their back-to-school shopping lists, with good reason.

  According to obscure, and broad, University of Texas rules, it is possible to get a citation for being obscene for carrying a dildo in public.

“No person or organization will distribute or display on the campus any writing or visual image, or engage in any public performance, that is obscene. A writing, image, or performance is “obscene” if it is obscene as defined in Texas Penal Code, Section 43.21 or successor provisions, and is within the constitutional definition of obscenity as set forth in decisions of the United States Supreme Court.”

However, on Aug. 1, new open carry laws, called campus carry, went into effect in Texas which allowed University of Texas students to carry guns onto campus and some University of Texas students found these rules to be somewhat non-sensical.

“The State of Texas has decided that it is not at all obnoxious to allow deadly concealed weapons in classrooms, however, it does have strict rules about free sexual expression, to protect your innocence. You would receive a citation for taking a dildo to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class. Heaven forbid the penis.”  The founder of the Open Dildo Carry protest Jessica Lin posted to the group’s Facebook page.

Lin then decided to protest the contradicting rules, inviting students to carry their sex toys attached to their backpack much like collectible keychains. The protest was very successful and even received a donation of 4,500 dildos according to the Texas tribune.

A little closer to home, in Florida, an open carry law similar to the one in Texas passed 80-38 in the House of Representatives but eventually failed to pass in a Senate committee. In the end, Florida remains one of the few states that only allows concealed carry with a concealed carry permit.

However, If Florida does decide to go in the direction of Texas, cocksnotglocks might be willing to help. You can send them questions, or praise, or donate a clean unused cock at inquiries@cocksnotglocks.org
