Here’s a great idea! The Open Carry Texas idiots are planning a march through a predominately black neighborhood soon.
These are the same people who protested Texas’ gun laws by marching around a Home Depot and a Target with their rifles, as though they’re actually trying to do something other than intimidate local people. The group is mostly made up of white men, which is what most of the ammosexual community seems to be.
The Houston Press reported that this is an outreach event, designed to encourage more people to step up for gun rights. C.J. Grisham, one of the organizers of the event, actually had the audacity to say:
“Somebody’s got to stand up and sit at the front of the bus.”
Seriously? That’s incredibly insulting, coming from a white person. Gun rights and civil rights aren’t anything like the same fight. That’s a really bad way to attempt community outreach. Gun control isn’t slavery, and it isn’t discrimination on the basis of who a person is, therefore, it’s very insulting to claim that it is in the name of “outreach.”
It trivializes the civil rights fights, and badly trivializes the horror that was slavery.
Furthermore, the Fifth Ward, which is where they want to march, is a community that former slaves started after the Civil War. Not to mention the fact that a pro-gun Houston group associated with Open Carry Texas protested outside the Fifth Ward Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee’s, office last year, doing stupid, racist things like eating fried chicken.
The walk is being touted as a canned food drive according to the Facebook event page, and it was going to held this summer, but Grisham rescheduled the event becasue he has a previous engagment to speak at a John Birch Society meeting. Seriously.
It has been rescheduled for Christmas Day this year. What better way to raise food for the poor and reach out to the black community than to appear in their neighborhood carrying long guns, and more or less, telling them that gun rights is the civil rights issue of our age and that they ought to be more involved? On Christmas?!
They ought to first ask the question: what would happen if a group of black men showed up in a mostly white neighborhood with guns, purporting to be collecting canned food?
If it was announced ahead of time, many people in that neighborhood, particularly if it was a conservative one, would most likely be on the phone to the police and their town hall asking them to call it off, on the phone to the press to complain, and collecting signatures to stop the event.
Since these guys are white, however, then it’s presumably perfectly okay — and they probably won’t have any trouble at all.
