Open Carry Lobbying: This is how NOT to do it.

It pains me that I have to link to Moms Demand, but it seems the people involved in the following video are not posting it publicly. It is painful to watch to the end, but please do so.

 

“Don’t touch me?” WTH? Are you 5 years old? Blocking the door like a cheap vacuum salesman from the 50s? “I’ll show you mean”? You do not display Mike Tyson-in-a-hotel-room behavior during Resurrection Mass at the Vatican. Is that such a hard concept to process?

The group in this video is called Lone Star Gun Rights. In this picture we can see some of the people in the video (Santa, Cowboy Hat, Brunette with black boots, tall guy in Texas hoodie.) And there is the mandatory Guy Wearing Cammo because we could not figure out a bigger Gun Nut stereotype to bring to the Legislature. And by the way, the cute, well-edited video that shows the group acting like rational human beings? Hint: Alex Jones’ InfoWars is not what is considered a well-respected or even somewhat rational media outlet. You would be getting more coverage and more seriousness out of a live Mushroom-Growing competition  Youtube Channel.

Fellow gun-rights activist CJ Grisham said he initially accompanied the group as they stopped by Capitol offices, but left before they reached Nevárez because he disagreed with how they were interacting with lawmakers.

“I just can’t believe the utter lack of professionalism, tact and, really, common courtesy that I saw today,” Grisham said. “It was intimidation, it was talking down, it was speaking over, it was childishness, and it did absolutely zero to even engage in conversation.”

When the you have King Baiter C.J. Grisham saying you went stupid…..

And by the way, I happened to come across the video because it showed in the Facebook page of Moms Demand, Florida chapter. So thanks for the help there Sparky, I am sure it will come in handy when we try this year once again for our Open Carry law.

At this rate of “help” by well-intentioned but totally stupid Gun Right groups, Texans will be lucky the Legislature does not rescind Concealed Carry altogether.

  1. It’s funny how when the Right acts like the Left with their crappy intimidation tactics and methods, they get call childish, unprofessional, intimidating, and so on.
    When the Left does it – ‘Well, that’s Free Speech, baby!’

    Such hypocrisy…

    1. We are subjected (fairly or unfairly) to a higher standard. Now we either acknowledge that and plan accordingly or we get creamed in the media and lose ground.
      If it was easy, we would have won this fight long ago.
