    It would be nice if these folks instead of open carry military style weapons, open carry spray bottles and squeegees and offer to clean the windshields of these motorists.

    Notice how they don’t “open carry” in Florida? Only in Texas.

    If they “protested” in Florida, someone might just “stand their ground” and the bloodbath would be a very messy affair!

    The NRA got GOTP in their pocket. My thought is, why bother?

  • 45 states allow the open carry of properly holstered handguns. 30 of these states do not require a permit to pone carry. Neither should Texas! learn more at OpenCarry.org.

      So answer this: how do you know the good guy carrying an assault rifle into a restaurant from the bad guy carrying an assault weapon into a restaurant? Multiply this question by 10 when you have 10 guys carrying assault rifles into a restaurant. That sounds like an armed gang to me. Plus, what’s the issue with open carry in all public places? All they really want is to have someone else to shoot at or intimidate.
      Seems as if these gun nuts just want to storm troop their way around the country. To me they look foolish. Plus back in the good old bad old days when the NRA was just about going to the range to learn how to properly shoot and or handle weapons, those guys didn’t open carry in restaurants or schools or any other public place. They kept their weapons at home locked in a gun case and only took them out for hunting season or to go to the range. So what’s the deal now with all this we need to carry these weapons everywhere we go?

    I think it’s a great idea. We need more guns at all republican functions. That way we’d soon have no republicans to worry about.

    • Hofenbrau

      Well that’s the thing. They won’t allow them to open or conceal carry in their functions because something might go wrong, like an accidental discharge, then where would they be? OMG, the “children” they would say, think of the children…
