Texas-sized absurdity

As of next August, University of Texas at Austin students will be able to openly carry weapons inside university buildings.

Jessica Jin has organized a protest in which students opposed to the new "campus carry" gun law will open carry sex toys.

She says it's absurd to allow open carry of guns, but obscenity laws make it illegal to open carry dildos.

So far, more than 3,700 people have signed up for a protest event, which will be held on the first day of classes next August.

The event uses the hashtag #CocksNotGlocks.
