University of Wisconsin-Madison students plan to carry sex toys around campus next semester to protest a bill that would allow concealed weapons in university classrooms.
 
Republican Rep. Jesse Kremer plans to introduce legislation that would allow concealed weapons in public colleges' classrooms. UW-Madison sophomore Kat Kerwin is organizing the protest. She tells Wisconsin Public Radio concealed weapons will make students and professors uncomfortable.
 
A date for the protest hadn't been set as of Dec. 23 but plans call for it to take place sometime during the spring semester.
 
Kremer says the protesters are a small group of students and professors who are scared of guns just because they're guns.
