Austin – Hundreds of University of Texas students waved sex toys
at a campus rally during the first day of classes, protesting a new state law
that allows concealed handguns in college classrooms, buildings and dorms.

notion that guns should be allowed in academic settings. The law took effect
and faculty at the Austin campus fiercely opposed allowing license holders to
carry their concealed handguns to class. One prominent dean left the school
after the law passed in 2015. Several faculty members attended the rally.
said they distributed more than 4 500 free sex toys.
