These people protested gun control at the University of Texas at Austin by staging a mock mass shooting.

"All gun rights people know that gun-free zones are dangerous places; they're not safe places. So we're making some national footage on it through our skits that we're going to put together to be kind of 'SNL'-type skit that we did," said Jason Orsek, vice president of Come and Take it Texas.

There were counter-protesters, too. They used fart guns to disrupt the demonstration. (Video via The Austin Chronicle / Mac McCann)

"And some people want us to be more afraid. And some people want us to surround ourselves with the tools of violent threat to scare others," said Andrew Dobbs, who helped organize the counter-protest. (Video via YouTube / Johnny Matranga)
