In Dallas Texas on Saturday, a group calling itself “Open Carry Texas” showed up armed with semi-automatic pistols, rifles and other various firearms. In order to present a strong and intimidating front against a group they believe wants to limit their liberty, these brave men stood shoulder-to-shoulder, weapons poised for immediate response to any hostile move from their sworn enemies.
According to ThinkProgress, a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action (MDA) said the moms were inside the Blue Mesa Grill when approximately forty members of the open carry 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.
So who are these four mothers that so threatened the gun-violence advocates that they needed this show of force?
According to their website, Moms Demand Action is a:
“Non-partisan grassroots movement of American mothers demanding new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws, loopholes and policies that for too long have jeopardized the safety of our children and families.”
And as if that weren’t treasonous enough, they added this:
[box type=”shadow”]Moms Demand Action envisions a country where all children and families are safe from gun violence. Our nonpartisan grassroots movement is made up of more than 100,000 members and a chapter in every state across the country. We are educating, motivating, and mobilizing moms and families to take action that will result in stronger laws and policies to save lives. We support these solutions to help address gun violence in the United States:
- Require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases;
- Ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds;
- Track the sale of large quantities of ammunition, and ban online sales;
- Establish product safety oversight of guns and ammunition, and require child-safe gun technology;
- Support policies at companies and public institutions that promote gun safety;
- Counter the gun industry’s efforts to weaken gun laws at the state level.[/box]
Naturally the valiant men of Open Carry Texas had no choice but to confront these socialist women, and take a stand. And stand they did! This picture, posted earlier today on their facebook page, shows exactly what the four moms saw as they met in a suburban shopping area to enlist new members.
Make no mistake, this assembly of firepower was entirely legal under Texas’ Open Carry law. No shots were fired and no one was injured. More details on this will follow in the next day or so, but this image should be permanently seared into your brain. The gravitas of the actual confrontation was very real and obviously a serious cause of concern for the moms involved.
Those of you who adamantly support unrestricted gun rights. Who constantly cry for more guns (in the hands of good people of course). And who present yourselves as patriots and protectors need to ask yourself if this is what you had in mind. Four moms…confronted by this. Shameful and unforgivable.
