US-GUNS-RIGHTS-MARCHnewser

(NEWSER) – Two Texas gun-rights groups will be holding a "mock mass shooting" at the University of Texas in Austin on Saturday in an effort to put an end to gun-free zones in the state, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

Actors armed with cardboard guns will go around "shooting" other actors while fake blood spurts and "gun noises" are played through bullhorns, says Matthew Short, spokesperson for Come and Take It Texas and DontComply.com. Of course, what would fake bad guys with guns be without fake good guys with guns? Short says "rescuers" will use their own cardboard guns to stop the shooters. "In the wake of yet another gun-free-zone shooting, Obama is using it to aggressively push his gun confiscation agenda," the event's Facebook page states. "Now is the time to ... put an end to the gun-free killing zones."
