Open Carry Texas doesn’t just arm children for art festivals — they approach them on the street, as well.
Open Carry Texas posted this image and explained that they told impressionable children that gun control was a “major component of the Jim Crow era” to disarm African Americans — because that is what Jim Crow was about, apparently.
We’re curious if these kids’ mothers approve of armed maniacs walking up to their children and pushing a pro-gun agenda. Is it appropriate for Jim Crow laws, which made black people second-class citizens, to be so grossly misrepresented to kids?
Open Carry Texas has developed a reputation for threatening women, releasing the personal information of those who dare call police to report their actions, and other vile acts. The group was condemned by even the NRA (before a hasty retraction) for its despicable methods of “in your face gun rights.”
It is every parent’s right to decide if their children are permitted around guns. The action taken by this group is reprehensible.
