In a Facebook post, Never Comply mentioned the occasion went completely, and that police showed up after 10 minutes of the event being loudly narrated via a bullhorn.

Don’t Comply stated that the typical mass shooting takes four minutes.

Organiser Murdoch Pizgatti told the Houston Chronicle the occasion was planned to show that mass shootings occur unannounced and that police do not arrive till well right after the shooting is over.

“You need to protect oneself. You should be armed,” he mentioned.

Second-year student Charlie Henry told NonDoc that he believed the demonstration was “disrespectful”.

“Open carry is unsafe, threatening, and I do not consider it’s necessary,” he mentioned.

The counter protest marched via campus carrying flatulence noisemakers and homemade indicators, such as some that read “I fart in your basic path” — a reference to the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Protesters also carried dildos, a reference to a #CocksNotGlocks” anti-gun demonstration planned for next year in which students have pledged to carry sex toys on campus — an act that is punishable by a $ 500 fine — in protest against a new law that will permit handguns in university buildings.

As they approached the internet site of the mass shooting, protesters shouted “UT” and “farts”.

The counter protest was planned by 2006 graduate Tim Sookram and a friend from his college comedy group.

“They are not genuinely listening to purpose at all, and this is mainly why we’re making fun of them,” Mr Sookram told NonDoc.

“Their rhetoric and their actions are so bizarre, we just have to meet it with the exact same sort of language.”

Another organiser, Andrew Dobbs, told the crowd “I select to believe that worry is not the solution to the threat of our time,” the Houston Chronicle reported.

“That laughing in the face of fear is a courageous act and toting a gun about everywhere you go, maybe not so considerably.”
