NRA slams Texas gun group as ‘downright weird’ and ‘scary’ for rallying at restaurants with rifles

The National Rifle Association thinks Open Carry Texas has taken a law allowing rifles in public too far after backlash for bringing guns to chain restaurants like Chipotle and Starbucks. 'A small number (of Texans) have recently crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness,' the NRA said in an online posting Friday.

BY SASHA GOLDSTEIN NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Monday, June 2, 2014, 5:19 PM Updated: Monday, June 2, 2014, 5:56

Brian Chrusciel of Fort Worth, Texas, poses for a portrait holding a pocket version of The Constitution of the United States and his Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, as he and members of the Open Carry Tarrant county group gathered for a demonstration on Thursday in Haltom City, Texas.
Even the National Rifle Association thinks some Texas residents are taking public gun toting too far.

The notorious gun lobby has slapped members of Open Carry Texas as “downright weird” for their insistence on bringing loaded semi-automatic rifles, including AR-15s and AK-47s, into family-friendly establishments like Chipotle and Starbucks.

The statement, released Friday, came one day before a throng of some 150 people, some armed with semi-automatic rifles and copies of the U.S. Constitution, assembled peacefully outside a Home Depot in North Richland Hills, a Dallas/Fort Worth suburb.


“We’re fundamentally changing America and changing Texas,” Mark Thompson, armed with a Beretta semi-automatic rifle during the rally Saturday, told the Dallas Morning News. “We’re letting people know they’re free.”

But the NRA, whose vice president Wayne LaPierre endorsed “a good guy with a gun” in schools and other public places shortly after the massacre at Newtown, said in a blog posting that “a small number (of Texans) have recently crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness.”

The state allows unlicensed people to openly carry rifles in public places, a law OCT has used “merely to draw attention” to themselves, the NRA said.

“Let's not mince words, not only is it rare, it's downright weird and certainly not a practical way to go normally about your business while being prepared to defend yourself,” the statement says. “To those who are not acquainted with the dubious practice of using public displays of firearms as a means to draw attention to oneself or one's cause, it can be downright scary. It makes folks who might normally be perfectly open-minded about firearms feel uncomfortable and question the motives of pro-gun advocates.”


MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America circulated a petition asking Chipotle to ban guns in restaurants after a rally last month at a Dallas-area restaurant spooked other customers. And Open Carry Texas demonstrations at Jack in the Box and Starbucks caused the companies to prohibit firearms from their respective establishments nationwide.

“I think they’re just a bunch of boobs,” Jon Felt, 49, told the Morning News as he watched Saturday’s demonstration. “They say they checked all these weapons. How do we know they’re empty? I don’t know who these people are.”

Were any of these mass shootings not the work of a schizoid?

How about schizoid control?

We used to have a process for that.

Ron, your store got one in stock with the conversion. The mags shoot about three inches higher at twenty feet, but i,ll get dialed in. I like the DeSantis pocket holster that NAA sells on their website for jeans, but not so much slacks. Meh. Its fun.

Meanwhile people in Texas act like people in CA shortly before CA banned unlicensed open carry. Brilliance at work. Sometimes its actually bad to bring the public spotlight even if you ARE within your rights. Theres a difference between legal and smart.

I love shooting 22lr. It is the only round that I can afford to go to the range and shoot 400 rounds in an afternoon.

I never had much use for handguns. I don't plan on going around shooting people. That is what handguns are for if you get down to the nitty gritty.

I can see the use of a cheapo pistol for putting down deer, but I generally put them down with a 30-06. Which is a great round.

As for 22lr ammo, I prefer the CCI Velocitor. I have a couple of boxes of CCI segmented hollow points, and that is the round I would like to NOT get shot with.

There is supposedly a problem with Stingers in Ruger 10-22's. I've shot them, and they are way loud.

I like the 30-06 too. Taken several deer and two elk with mine. But i keep a 357 or 44mag as backup, since once the scope came loose and twice it failed to fire due to crud in the firing mechanism. Pistols are way more convenient to hunt with in the really thick brush, at least imho. Not just for shooting people.

Sounds good what sort of food is it?

Regarding gun debate... there is nothing to add, nothing to say, no point to be made - that hasn't been made a thousand times over by women way smarter'n us.

Think roadhouse. Its not gourmet, but you wont go hungry. For the atmosphere and decorations tho, kinda fun. Close to dino rock, prison hill, and iron butte. Relatively speaking.
Or, i got some good elk burger. Ground with bacon. Yum. And PBR. Or shocktop. Or deschutes somethingorother. Whatevers on sale and/or interesting.

Gun threads mostly entertainment. Made my points ad nauseum.
