In some of the campus newspaper's photos, some of the female students appear exceptionally eager to receive their "toys" ... Hummmm .... Could the "real" motivation have possibly been different from the nominal protest?
It really DOES make one wonder, eh?

Expose them to the sex culture and see how they feel about it! Yawn. Who's gonna care you're walking around with your rubber boyfriend hanging at your side. Morons.

Be sure to keep it with you however. In the event of an actual campus shooting, you're f***ed

In the rest of the state, it's called "The People's Republic of Austin"....nothing that comes out of there surprises me.
Amazingly, I have 2 daughters who managed to come out of there with conservative values. They're becoming the exception.

50 years since the tower? Where the h#$% has time gone? I was there visiting. To me, it is the same thing as be kind and gentle to the misunderstood terrorist. When I see what this country is becoming, I wonder what has happened in my lifetime?

We don't need a fence on the southern Texas border, we need a fence along our north border to keep the Yankees out of here. Probably should also include the east and west borders since some of them Yankees might get help from Yankee collaborationists in New Mexico and Louisiana and be told they could sneak in that way.

And for those Yankees that have already sneaked into Texas and are ruining our Republic, just leave and take your hockey teams with you. Hockey doesn't belong in any place where water does not naturally form a solid for a significant part of the year.

Us Texans don't even recognize Austin as a part of Texas anymore. Most of us avoid that town like the plague.

I bet their parents are so proud...

fruit cakes in Austin

Ya gotta love my alma mater (Dec 72).. Not sure why anyone feels the need t o strap on a dildo to their back back to 'protest' anything except not being able to buy sex toys. At least the girls will have a nice toy for later.
NEVER try to argue with one of those hair on fire Liberals- logic is not anything they understand or use. Truth is just something that gets in the way. Facts mean nothing unless THEY made them up. Now, that said, they are a lot of fun to bait and let them rant and rage. hilarious, in fact. 1- must be 21 to have a CHL in Texas.. that eliminates Fr, Soph and most Jr's. But, they will still rage about KIDS with guns- yeah, the same KIDS that were in uniform protecting their scrawny little chicken a***s- 18-21 yr old veterans. But these whiney little punks wet their panties when they see a gun or a soldier.
Remember the "sophomore effect'- armed with a little information, (pardon the pun) they think they know it all.

Even though Texas allows for someone as young as 18 to get a CHL, it's only those who are currently in the military or who have been discharged under honorable conditions. If you look at the demographics of most colleges, the vast majority of them will be under 21 old and not subject to having a CHL anyway. Of those currently less than 21 who are allowed to get a CHL by the above mentioned clause, there's just not that many of them around who would be going to college. And when you factor in the likelihood of someone in general getting a CHL, only about 3-4% of those over 21 have CHLs. Those in the younger age groups are even less likely to have a CHL.

All in all, there's just not very many people who would even be possibly carrying if every person with a CHL carried on campus -- a handful, at best. They're making a big deal about nothing. For those older people who are more likely to have a CHL and carry, well, these are not the types of people they should be worrying about anyway.

I have actually been on one of the UT campuses since the change to conduct some business. I was not sure if they allowed open carry at the time, so I put my vest on, just like I used to do before campus carry was authorized.

Please tell me there is video of the guys who are smart enuf to find the hot chic protesters, walk up and say, "While I do normally carry concealed, that is not a big metal gun in my pocket, I AM happy to see you, and you don't need that silly little silicone thing, honey ... let me show you why!"

It seems that critical thinking skills have all but disappeared on college campuses...not terribly surprising I suppose.

I've lived in Texas since 1993 and I can tell you that I have never been to Austin. Frankly, I can't think of a reason to go there.

In all fairness to the young citizenry of Austin, some of those 'ojects de arte' looked big enough to inflict a nasty head wound. And, of course, kids are taught to hurl things at the shooter should there be an active shooter. Allowing people under 30 to vote has ruined our republic.

Fools come on down

Doesn't these foolish people realize, That criminals do not obey laws. All thru history we can see that when governments take our weapons away, the government becomes dictators. And when that happens we can no longer fight back, hummmmm can anyone think of which countries these were? Germany, Russa, China, Iran , Iraq, and the list goes on. Our forefathers gave us a constitution that allows for us to never let this happen in this great country, unless we let these FOOLS start electing FOOLS, oh wait a minute this has happen in the past 8 years. And I pray that these FOOLS do not vote in their leading FOOL come November.

Texas has the crime of "UCW" -- Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon. There various things that if carried in certain manners would allow you to be charged with UCW. One such thing is that you are not allowed to carry a club or mace (not the chemical type of mace, the old fashioned type). As such, if you have a baseball bat in your car, you had better have a baseball and glove there also if you are stopped by a car and the officer notices it. How much of a stretch of the imagination would it be for a LEO to charge these people with UCW for carrying these items if they said that it was for defending themselves from attacks?

Funniest thing was one of the girls passing out "toys" was going on about how Texas Legislature timed their decision around spring break so that the students couldn't stop it. I'm sure Texas government officials were quaking in their boots about this girl and her 2 foot fake penis. Talk about inflated sense of self importance. I graduated from UT Austin 20 years ago, and even then it was liberal, less so than A&M I felt. But it's gotten so bad I'm almost embarrassed that is my school. That being said, professors have a ridiculous amount of influence on college kids. These kids think these teachers are so smart and eat up all their bs with a big spoon.

Kids this age aren't of much use for anything and it is a good thing the war in Vietnam is over because if any of these kids were subject to the draft, they would all be riding the same bus to Canada.


"Let them go", I'd say.

Ole Doc Johnson made a few bucks, funny thing these protestors seem to only enhance the wicked buisnesses income. Just like when they protested Chik-fil-a and thousands crossed the lines.

What a bunch of dildos.. Campus activism is just an excuse to get high and get laid during class hours.. Guns are in fact needed on campus, as far as sex toys that's a behind closed doors thing. I would open carry hard on that campus.

I was going to college in New Mexico when the Shooting took place in Austin.
I have read several accounts of what happened, confusion reined.

I will say at all the places of higher learning I have gone to you really have to watch out what you say. Some Profs are touchy on some subjects and you can get a lousy grade. I recall going to college after NAM, in Texas, that you had to keep a low profile. Some would consider you a "baby killer'.

But to the original topic, I really do not like the idea of carrying a gun on any campus, just my feeling. One thing they tend to over look is that you have to be 21 to be licensed in Texas. Thank goodness, an impressionable teen carrying a gun in the middle of other teens is a problem waiting to happen. Again back to the atmosphere on campus, the Profs would take a dim view of anyone carrying and grade accordingly.

Just my two cents.

Unfortunately, open carry on campus in Texas has not passed yet as far as I have heard.

Does that fall under the TMI kind of thing?

Lived in Austin since the early 1940's. My mother could hear the rifle shots from Charlies shooting. Austin in the 40's and 50's was a completely different place, now, although I still have a residence there, I wouldn't live there full time due to the absurdity of the people that have taken over what once was a very nice town...Tom

Is it any coincidence that the girl who started this (Jessica Jin) currently lives in San Francisco? She is supposedly from San Antonio originally, but the leftists kooks in San Francisco completely screwed up her brain. Apparently, she was some sort of music major, so that also probably explains why her brain doesn't work that right.
