As of this Summer, concealed carrying of guns will be allowed on all public college campuses without requiring a permit of license. This is the decision of the Kansas Legislature, and many have spoken out against the rule saying it creates an unsafe atmosphere. In response, the Ovaries-eez have modified a cover of Johnny Cash’s “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town.” Along with local director Nicholas Ward, they shot a music video using footage from a demonstration on the campus (you can see that below).
The Ovaries-eez released a statement regarding their stance on the issue, saying “The connection between music and political expression is long standing. Music can be used as a tool for raising awareness and advocacy.” They also added, “By performing this song, we hope to boost morale and lift the spirits of those fighting for a better world.”
