From Talking Points Memo:

A small meeting for a gun control group in Texas was disrupted on Saturday by dozens of armed, pro-gun advocates, some of whom were photographed kneeling in a parking lot and brandishing their weapons.

… “Our mom members and restaurant customers were terrified by what appeared to be an armed ambush,” the group said in a statement. “Sadly, these bullies are attempting to use guns to intimidate moms and children and to infringe on our constitutional right to free speech. But Moms Demand Action will not be deterred. The desperate actions of this vocal minority only fuels our determination to fight for gun reform in Texas and across the country. Change will come.”

It’s about intimidation. I saw plenty of this in late night threatening phone calls, threats to bring a posse to Arkansas Times office for a beatdown, threats to shoot my dog, etc., during the great concealed carry permit debate. I bet a lot of these tough guys wouldn’t attempt to stare down unarmed moms WITHOUT their guns. All hat, no cattle.


Here’s the Moms Facebook page, from which the photo above was taken. Lots of comments there about guns and the open carry contingent.
