Thousands of US students are planning to stage a protest against the country's insane lack of gun control – by arming themselves with dildos.

University of Texas student Jessica Jin, who started the movement with a Facebook event, is attempting to call out controversial new legislation that will allow people to freely carry guns anywhere on campus: whether they're in a lecture theatre or a dormitory. 

“The State of Texas has decided that it is not at all obnoxious to allow deadly concealed weapons in classrooms,” Jin wrote on the event page. “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.”

Jin is calling on her fellow students to protest the new law by getting them to strap “gigantic, swinging” dildos to their backpacks when the law comes into power next August – and so far, nearly 4000 people have confirmed they're up to the challenge.

“You're carrying a gun to class?” she continued. “Yeah well I'm carrying a HUGE DILDO. Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play. #CocksNotGlocks”.

The rapidly rising support for Jin's movement isn't all that surprising. There have already been 52 school shootings in the US this year alone – with the tragic attack on a community college in Oregon being the most recent. And, although people are currently allowed to carry handguns on university grounds, this new law will let them be brought inside any public building, by anyone. Which seems weird, because these are actual death machines made for murdering people.

University of Texas’ Chancellor William McRaven – a former Navy SEAL admiral who was part of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden – expressed his disapproval of the new “campus carry” law, claiming schools and universities probably weren’t the best place for guns.

“I like guns, but I just don't think having them on campus is the right place,” he told CNN. “I have been shot at before. And so I know what and how people react when they are being shot at. So if you aren't trained in that environment you probably aren't going to react the way people think you will react naturally.”
