40 Armed Gun Advocates Intimidate Mothers Against Gun Violence In A Restaurant Parking Lot
On Saturday, nearly 40 armed men, women, and children waited outside a Dallas, Texas area restaurant to protest a membership meeting for the state chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a gun safety advocacy group formed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
According to a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action (MDA), the moms were inside the Blue Mesa Grill when members of Open Carry Texas (OCT) — an open carry advocacy group — “pull[ed] up in the parking lot and start[ed] getting guns out of their trunks.” The group then waited in the parking lot for the four MDA members to come out. The spokeswoman said that the restaurant manager did not want to call 911, for fear of “inciting a riot” and waited for the gun advocates to leave. The group moved to a nearby Hooters after approximately two hours.
MDA later released a statement calling OCT “gun bullies” who “disagree[d] with our goal of changing America’s gun laws and policies to protect our children and families.” The statement added that the members and restaurant customers were “terrified by what appeared to be an armed ambush.” A member of OCT responded by tweeting, “I guess I’m a #gunbullies #Comeandtakeit.”
This is not the first time that gun advocates have rallied at MDA events. In March, a group of armed men crashed a MDA gun-control rally in Indianapolis. Other gun advocate groups will hold rallies this upcoming December 14th, the anniversary date of the Sandy Hook shooting.
Licensed gun owners are allowed to carry concealed weapons, but Texas is one of six states that prohibits open carry of firearms. Attorney General Greg Abbott, a likely Republican successor for Gov. Rick Perry (R), has vowed to permit concealed handgun owners to display their firearms in public. Four GOP contenders for lieutenant governor similarly hope to put in place open carry laws if elected.

Threatening unarmed women? Sound like thugs.

I can't imagine how terrifying that must have been.

Wait... "armed CHILDREN"???
And only four brave souls in the restaurant anyway???
Aren't there anti-threatening behavior laws in Texas?

Someone should lay an ambush and shoot OCT when they show up at MDA meetings. That would be perfect.

I bet these vicious shits are the first to whine about their rights while trying to take away someone else's right to go to a restaurant without being ambushed and intimidated by armed thugs. Texas should just disappear into a giant sinkhole, the collective IQ of the whole planet would rise.

That'll teach them to go around accusing gun enthusiasts of not being responsible, trustworthy citizens!

The accompanying photo is telling. One Johnny Reb in a crouch, ready to shoot (generally known as "brandishing"), and not a single dick on any of those losers. Whew.

Needledicks, every one of them.
Take away their phallic symbols, and their egoes collapse.

These small dicked, shriveled balled gun advocates are so ignorant, they have no clue how stupid, inbred, and bullish they appear. They add to the argument that gun nuts are NOT responsible but are too stupid to realize it.
I really don't get what is going on in this country now. The only thing I can come up with is that the black man is president and we are not seeing all the racists heads exploding. Their vile waste of a brain seeping all over.

It's scary. This "Cowboys & Indians" mentality with all these freaks is really scary. I say they let all these gun loving freaks all get together in the middle of nowhere and have at it with each other if they think their guns are so great.
