Okay, here’s the deal. I am not making this stuff up.

The gun-freaks in Texas have a charming and delightful idea right here before celebrating the birth of the Prince of Peace.

Gun rights groups say they will conduct a mock mass shooting this weekend at the University of Texas campus as they try to end gun-free zones.The Open Carry Walk and Crisis Performance Event will involve actors “shot” by perpetrators armed with cardboard weapons, said Matthew Short, a spokesman for the gun rights groups Come and Take It Texas and DontComply.com.“It’s a fake mass shooting, and we’ll use fake blood,” he said. He said gun noises will be blared from bullhorns.

What could possibly go wrong? You know, except good guys with a gun showing up and shooting everybody acting the fool. There’s that. You know, because people on a college campus with guns is a perfectly safe thing to see.

The gun holders will first walk around Austin with fully loaded weapons before heading to campus. That is called foreplay.

Also, it’s the week before finals so students can’t just stay at home that day. Stressed out people mixed with wild eyed crazybutt people is gonna make a mess.

These dudes have a Facebook page, but fair warning – your eyes will burn.

Just minutes ago this happened.

A University of Texas spokesman says the planned mock mass shooting demonstration this weekend would be considered criminal trespass if participants do not leave when asked.

Look, I’m not saying this is in bad taste right after San Bernardino and Paris, but … Oh hell, Holy Damn Crap, this is just raw genuine awful.

The head of the gun nuts asked about this being a tad scary, and he replied, “We love freedom and we’re trying to make more freedom.”

Somebody, please, tell me what the fool tarnation that means?
