I posted before about the futility of using firearm statistics to try to win over gun rights advocates to gun control. Different language, different priorities.
Right now there is something quite a bit different going on as UT Austin. Students are carrying around sex toys in protest to new rules that allow open carry of firearms on campus.
Though this criticism of gun culture works well on several levels, it also seems unlikely to win over gun rights advocates. Can it still be a useful tactic? It seems to depend on how it impacts people who are not passionate about guns either way. If teasing successfully marginalizes the rights folks, it can work, even if it further motivates them.
At least it is something new. Curious to see if this sort of thing catches on.
