Gun Dealer: ‘Open Carry Tarrant County is Like the Demonic Offspring of Westboro Baptist Church and Boko Haram’ (Video)

“Rich,” an Oklahoma gun dealer who runs a YouTube channel where he discusses a variety of gun-related topics, is a strong advocate of open carry. In fact, he approves of it so much that he recently spoke out about the situation that has recently been developing in Texas–in an unexpected manner!

Lately, the Open Carry zealot community has been too much even for the NRA. Despite the backpedaling after Open Carriers began cutting up their NRA cards, the NRA expressed discontent with the means by which the groups have been spreading their message:

“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. 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.”

Rich enjoys his right to openly carry a handgun but clearly draws a distinction between openly carrying and carrying for attention, saying:

“So now I have a f*cking AR strapped across my chest, and I’m walking through Walmart with my Tasty Treats, okay? What do I look like now? Well first off, I look like an a*shole, okay? Plain and simple. I look like an a*shole. Second, I look like a f*ckin’ psycho . . . I look like a lunatic right now.

Quite honestly, if I walked into Walmart like this, even here in Oklahoma, the first thing that’s gonna happen is people are gonna flip plum the f*ck out. The second thing that’s going to happen is those people who are flipping plum the f*ck out are calling 911, and then the cops are going to show up, and I’m going to be ‘all surprised’ about it. No I’m not. I expect that to happen. Why? Because I’m carrying a f*cking AR in Walmart. Seriously.”

Rich shared the difference between gun rights advocates like him and ammosexual terrorists like those who belong to Open Carry Tarrant County:

“. . . The point is, is that people should be able to eat their burritos in peace without a bunch of neck beards carrying ARs and AKs around. And just recently, they invaded a Target store. Now I’m gonna get a lot of flack for this, I get it, but here’s the thing: Open Carry Tarrant County is like the demonic offspring of Westboro Baptist Church and Boko Haram.”

Rich continued:

“You’re not educating people. You’re scaring them…What you guys have done is you’ve set us back — you’ve set the cause in Texas back. You’ve made it so that in certain places firearms are no longer welcome, where these establishments have never had a problem with it before.”

    its not “just” the point of open carry.

    its what happens when you have an AR-15 , then normal life happens…

    like getting into an argument.

    like someone drunk coming up to YOU, trying to take the weapon,

    or, just being obnoxious. how easy is that to escalate ?

    what if 4 black guys with AR-15s walk into a restaurant and start calling people names, swearing, telling people to F-off… ??? (no laws broken)

    lets say 7 white guys carrying walk in right after.

    Who wins ?
    Nobody, they are all dead.

    There are a LOT of things you can do, that are not illegal, burt can lead to very bad situations. If someone is carrying a semi-auto weapon, it upps the stakes 100 fold.

    life happens
    until there is a gun.
    Then, its not so certain.

    First off, non Americans should not be posting about our gun laws. Secondly your reference that guns are an item of masculinity maybe speaking to your own situation but is not fact, only an opinion. The second amendment is the gun law and was settled at the beginning of this country. Your desire for “reasonable gun laws” is double talk for surrendering fundamental rights granted as part of state agreeing to collectively become a union. I personally think several of the states should succeed from the union as the constitution is ignored especially by the current POTUS.

    • keithrc

      Yes, because Americans are so reluctant to comment on the laws of other countries…

      • https://www.facebook.com/fionamacknz Fiona Mackenzie

        Where do you live, Wil? Because in a democracy studying and discussing and working at politics is not just allowed, it’s your CIVIC DUTY.

    • AS147

      Sir, you are obviously free to your opinion however it is the opinion of many others that they believe rights should be logical not dogma. That the 2nd has been reinterpreted to suit the special gun interest groups. That this is the worst way of respecting the constitution and that the people should be aggrieved by such actions. Either way and regardless of borders of countries (which become more diluted every day in our global economy) this is of interest to all those that hold life sacrosanct.

      So rather than assume what people mean by their usually well intentioned actions and attack the opposing views surely we can all find common ground and agree that the current situation is not acceptable, yes?

  • AS147

    Its very simple, can the US ever deal with the lax gun laws that allow terrorist, rapists, folk who have a history of domestic violence and the minute population of dangerous mentally unstable people from gaining access to guns and having massive loop holes which allow unmonitored purchases. Also for the love of all that is sane can the US stop the politicians denying funding for studies into the effects of gun related issues? Stop playing politics with improving the health of the nation by reducing risk? Or should we deny other studies of similar nature?

    There are a lot of sensible people on both sides but they should all get together on these issues. I can guarantee both sides will be better off for it. It will show there are people willing to be reasonable from both sides and further their causes without all this animosity.

    As it stands stirring the fires of extremism is causing nothing but roadblocks.

    My father is from Texas, has owned guns as far back as I can remember, and has a concealed carry permit (which he uses). You won’t find a single picture of him posing with a gun or shooting. He doesn’t carry one in a holster everywhere he goes, only carrying it with him when he’s traveling and going into more dangerous areas, and even then, the gun usually stays in a secured place in the vehicle. And, like any sane individual, he thinks OCT is an absolute joke. What’s my point? Actual responsible gun owners aren’t these obnoxious gun-obsessed idiots who get off on intimidating people, and they support gun control legislation because it’s common sense.

    And, you know, what I always find funny is this – most women aren’t armed. On average, we don’t own an arsenal. We, again, on average, don’t possess concealed carry permits. WE don’t tote guns with us everywhere we go for “protection”. I go to Indianapolis – a city that has a deadly shooting almost every day – without a gun, and guess what? I’m not worrying over whether or not I need a Beretta to defend myself. It’s my personal opinion that these lunatics blathering on and on about needing to amass guns for protection are nothing but a bunch of cowards. Women are always considered the more fragile, delicate members of our species, but as usual, that couldn’t be further from the truth. For being such self-perceived bada**es, these “manly” men sure are paranoid, scared little sh*ts.

    (I put “manly” in quotations because I personally think it’s an idiotic, antiquated term, but still no doubt an adjective that the men of OCT proudly use to describe themselves.)

    • http://irishconnell.wordpress.com irishconnell

      Point made. I think that’s all we’ve ever wanted was some sanity about the laws. I know that if I saw someone walking into a store where I was I’d be walking out the door as fast as I could.

      • http://notagoodideasherlock.wordpress.com alyssamwbc

        As would I. There’s absolutely no way to tell if the person walking into the store/restaurant/etc. is a psycho on a mission to kill, or just a reckless, brainless d*****bag trying to make himself feel relevant. Which, apparently, the members of OCT and similar groups find to be an idea too difficult to grasp.

        Sadly, the biggest problem isn’t the the quality of our gun laws – it’s our gun culture. If we could …. I don’t know… take away this correlation between guns and masculinity, and guns as collectibles/toys, then I think the common sense gun regulations that need to be put into place would come into being. People need to stop thinking that owning guns is going to turn them into Rambo. The sensationalization of gun violence in entertainment is ridiculous. (That being said, I don’t blame violent movies and video games for the violence we see. For the most part, art is a reflection of a culture rather than its making. Though, I’m sure it doesn’t help us any…)

    I wonder if this guy even knows why in Texas we have to open carry long arms. Probably not, but like most blow hard idiots he has to run his mouth. I open carry, I own a gun shop and I’m in Texas.

    • JFischer

      Aside from the fact that long guns are difficult-to-impossible to conceal, why DO you have to carry them openly?

      • https://www.facebook.com/edward.j.belanger Edward J. Belanger

        He’s obviously afraid to run into rattle snakes in WalMart. LOL

    • http://irishconnell.wordpress.com irishconnell

      please enlighten me as to why you MUST open carry long guns?

      • Pafoofnik1

        Why must I open carry long guns?
        To get them from point A to point B.
        If I conceal, then I’m committing a felony here in Texas.

        Just a reminder that blanket statements aren’t.

    • Bill

      Please enlighten us.

    I don’t own weapon but am not against anyone who responsibly owns a gun, but this is too much for people like me. If I went into a store and people were walking around with rifles strapped on, I would leave. I guess that’s what these nuts want?

    Politics aside, this is one brave cat. The Open Carry crowd aren’t known for taking things lying down.

    • PopeRatzo

      The Open Carry crowd are a bunch of cowards and miscreants. They won’t bother this gentleman one bit. And if they do, he appears to have a passing familiarity with firearms. It might be a teaching moment for a few of them.

      • http://irishconnell.wordpress.com irishconnell

        I can’t wait.

  • E.A. Blair

    I own a gun. It’s a .177 caliber CO2-powered single-shot pellet/BB gun. It won’t fend off a home invader, and it won’t kill anything bigger than a cat or similar varmint, but it does tell me one thing: I am a good marksman. I can hit a two-inch target at thirty feet, and it means that if I find the need to use a handgun to defend myself, I can. I don’t need army-level firepower to tell me I’m a good shot, and most people who know me would probably be surprised that not only do I own a gun (of sorts), but that I’m can use it. I don’t need an assault rifle or high-powered ammunition to verify my skill – and that’s all it is: a skill, not a religion.

    I also know enough about how people react in crisis situations to know that even if I was carrying a weapon, in a mass shooting situation, I’d probably be more interested in not getting killed than being the good guy with the gun. If a sniper with decent cover would open fire on a gathering of these open carry assholes, I could guarantee that they’d all be dead before any of them realized what was going on, much less retaliate.

    • E.A. Blair

      Typo apology: “it won’t kill anything bigger than a fat” should have been “it won’t kill anything bigger than a rat”.

    At the very least the NRA should lose their tax exemption and be required to repay all their savings from the first day they started being a political donor. I don’t remember which site the sister of the lawyer on the NRA board and the guy most responsible for the change in their actions posted about the suicide by gun of her brother. She was against guns since then, but how much good could she have done if she had beaten some sense into his putrid brain.

    This guy is absolutely right but I’m betting he’s gonna start back pedaling in the next 24 hours. Not long ago, these nuts threatened a gun dealer in New Jersey because he was planning on selling those new “smart guns”. These people are completely INSANE!!!

  • Batman in Arkham

    I’m frankly not surprised to hear this coming from a gun salesman. These open carry nutjobs are hurting his bottom line by making people fear guns more than they would otherwise, and that drives away his potential customers. And what’s more, he’s absolutely correct.

    Me, I don’t find the open carry crowd threatening so much as ridiculous. Open carry of a handgun? Yeah, I can see the point in that because depending on how bad the neighborhood is, that might be your best deterrent to anybody messing with you (anyone who’s been to/lived in the Pine Hills section of Orlando knows what I mean; it’s dubbed “Crime Hills” for a reason). But when you walk into a taco shop in white-bread suburbia with a 12-gauge strapped to your back that you have no intention of using, you look like an idiot (with a very tiny penis).

  • Salvatore Aversa

    Good dude. Not all gun owners are like the crazies out there. I own a handgun. One. And I’ve went to the shooting range only a few times with it. I don’t have a permit to carry and conceal. I don’t belong to the NRA. I don’t have a 30 round magazine. And I don’t have tons and tons of ammo. I am a strong Democrat, and believe in gun control legislation.

    More gun owners need to speak up against assholes like the NRA and the insane policies the Republican Party is pushing for.
