AUSTIN, TX -(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday afternoon, the University of Texas at Austin chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas drew harsh criticism and more than a hundred counter-protesters in response to the group’s “affirmative action bake sale,” an event at which members sold baked goods at prices that varied according to the buyer’s race and gender.

Despite contentious discussions that sometimes devolved into shouting matches, no guns were draw and no shots were fired.

Thankfully, everyone’s First Amendment rights survived unscathed.

“To hear the anti-campus carry activists describe the mood on campus, you’d think that free expression and open debate were dead and buried. But events like this prove that the collegiate traditions of intellectual discourse and political activism are alive and well at the University of Texas.” Brian Bensimon, southwest regional director for Students for Concealed Carry, said.
