Open carriers in Akron, Ohio once again attempted to “educate” a crowd of people speaking out against gun violence. On Sunday, at a protest against the deadly results of the wrong people being in possession of firearms, a group of armed counter-protesters approached the group.
Unfortunately for the open carry nuts, their presence was not at all appreciated.
One of the activists who “educated” a victim of domestic violence about the need for guns and recently called for “illegal immigrants” to be gunned down at the border has some interesting views on women.
Hopefully, he did not offer any “compliments” that day.
Despite the fact that they were not at all welcome, they claimed they “changed some minds” and touted their counter-protest as a success.
Open carriers often go where they are not wanted to preach their message. Gun-toting imbeciles showed up to “support” Michael Brown, the unarmed teen murdered by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Unfortunately, while pushing their agenda, they forgot to learn Brown’s name, calling him “Chris” and “Ferguson.”
Other open carry advocates planned a march through a predominantly African-American neighborhood — which was canceled numerous times, most recently because residents were very outspoken about their desire to not have a bunch of racist white guys parading around with heavy weaponry.
