The men were Open Carry Firearm demonstrators who were protesting their rights to carry firearms in public.

Protesting their rights........or demonstrating their rights.......?

/anyway, I hope the cops are called on you every time you carry your AR into a business/public place.
//you want a reaction, I hope you like police reaction
///I'm all for concealed carry, but carrying around your AR in public like that is just stupid.

Look at the shiat eating grins on their faces. What a collection of assholes. Too bad someone with a CCP wasn't there the shoot them.

Mugato: Too bad someone with a CCP wasn't there the shoot them


I.e. a hero who stopped an impending robbery.

Unless they shot him first. Then they're heroes who used reasonable force against a deadly threat. Remember, whoever lives to write history is the hero.

Best case scenario would be two different groups of brandishing assholes deciding to 'demonstrate' at the same place at the same time without any knowledge that the other group was coming or even existed...

I bet they all ordered Bacon Ultimate cheeseburgers....

I want to see your gun about as much as I want to see your penis.  As in not at all.  So put that shiat away.

Ashyukun: brandishing assholes


unfortunately this is still illegal in most places
 
2014-05-05 05:23:00 PM  
One of the demonstrators, Edwin Haros, said that they weren't breaking any laws or trying to scare anybody

What you're trying to do and what you actually accomplish may be two very different things.
 
2014-05-05 05:24:18 PM  
Doesn't that make it more like Jerks in the Box?
 
2014-05-05 05:58:09 PM  
One customer said "When they walked in I crapped my pants. I'm not sure if it was the sight of them or the food"

What a brave bunch of patriots.  Something of great importance was surely accomplished on this day.
 
2014-05-05 06:02:53 PM  

I want to see some minority gun owners walk down the streets in the towns where these guys live. See what the response is then.

Well that's just silly. Jack in the box is usually soggy and fatty.

I'm going to start carrying around a halberd.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it specify firearms.
 
2014-05-05 06:04:12 PM  
BEST case scenario is the business tells them to GTFO
 
2014-05-05 06:05:47 PM  

Yogimus: BEST case scenario is


actually probably similar to the article. They got attention and food.
 
2014-05-05 06:06:26 PM  
Why would any sane person just assume their weapons are welcome in any place of business? I have no problem with open-carry, but walking into a fast food joint fully armed is just being a dick.
 
2014-05-05 06:07:02 PM  
If their state allows for open carry then they have every reason to expect to be allowed to walk into a restaurant with their toys out. But as grown men they must also understand the reaction a business will have when armed men enter, so they should also be responsible for paying back their state/city/county for the police response that follows. Gas in the cruisers, half a man-hour per responder, etc. That's just being a good citizen. That's just prudent.

You want to wave your dick around, fine, nobody's really going to get hurt, but you have to be prepared to answer for your dick waving.

wow, those patriots are moar patriotic than any of you could ever fake being.

they are moar patriotic than Uncle Sam snorting coke off a hookers ass through a rolled up Constitution in church while segregating teh population into income groups.

/do all Americans suffer from an inferiority complex?

2014-05-05 06:12:32 PM  
So what I find funny about this is that they suppose they are advocates but they're doing horrible PR.  They also have the hubris to assume that they won't have an accidental discharge, treating their guns like decorations.  You could argue that they might be responsible owners and they wouldn't be carrying fully loaded rifles around a family restaurant, but you know that's not how guys like this roll.  How would they be the big heroes if "it went down".

So they're strutting around with murder machines in a family joint.  Good work fellas, you've won another moral victory.

I say this as someone who is actually pro gun.
 
2014-05-05 06:13:36 PM  
I have no problem with people exercising their right to carry a firearm for self defense. Granted, there is no actual valid reason to walk about with an AK or a G3 or FN over your back, but...its within the law, though kinda attention whorish. If you are serious about carry, and wish to do so, try a pancake holster with a .45 so you don't alarm the masses. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should.

/And note to the employees? Armed robbers generally dont walk into a store with slung rifles, in a large group, and just stand there waiting to order. Criminals tend to HIDE their weapons, and pull them out suddenly. You being startled is understandable, but hiding in the back when it was obvious they were just wanting to order was a bit pussy.
 
2014-05-05 06:13:37 PM  
You know, a sidearm is one thing...some doof had one strapped on his leg in the produce department of my local grocery store on Saturday...but walking in with an AR like the idiot on the left side of the photo should be considered brandishing and he should be cited.

IMHO

Ashyukun: Best case scenario would be two different groups of brandishing assholes deciding to 'demonstrate' at the same place at the same time without any knowledge that the other group was coming or even existed...


Yeah!  I wonder what these guys would have thought if a group of 12 Mexicans or Black guys came in the place with their AR-15s and AK-47s fully loaded and strapped and ready to go?

Think anyone would spill some urine?

I would amend open carry is also ok for pistols. At least they're holstered.

no doubt the employee's were frightened, I don't think it's the weapons as much as it is the crazy person parading around with the weapon.
you may have a point though, seems like a public display of guns has been associated with criminal activity, like, they only type people who walk into fast food restaurants brandishing weapons, are crazy people.

2014-05-05 06:17:56 PM  
The employee should have taken a pen and paper and written a note saying "We reserve the right not to serve assholes with weapons".

I'm all in favor of gun ownership, but when you start carrying rifles into Jack in the Box because your mother won't give you any attention, you've gone too far.

They can't do that.  The inevitable hour on the toilet would take away from their gun carryin' around time.

I am so farking sick of seeing these "OpenCarry" douchbags , you have no need to be carrying your AR/Shotgun unless you're transporting it to and from a range, or going hunting.

the group in FarmersBranch likes to walk down the street and demonstrate in front of the police station.
While it is legal to do so in Texas (providing no rounds are chambered)... its still provocation, and as such opens them up to other civil penalties.

they are also currently getting all pissy with the city of Arlington. They go and demonstrate in traffic on busy streets...similar to how firemen will walk about collecting for charity in boots...only instead of there being a large fire engine and fireman holding a boot...its a bunch of tetrads walking up to cars at red lights with guns and pamphlets.  APD has laws on the books prohibiting standing on busy roads and intersections in this fashion...but because they love their guns...they are being petulant as fark.

honestly by Texas law I am allowed to keep a loaded pistol in my car ...basically all the time without the need for a CCP. So if I saw someone scumbag approach my truck while toting a long gun...and I "stood my ground" and shot them dead...what happens then?

/ I agree with you on a few points. Yes, these people were attention whoring assholes. Point taken.  But peoples panic over others exercising their right to carry, does not affect that right at all.  Agreed, they were douche bags, but...you cant fine / arrest / make someone pay for breaking no law.  I guess they could have tried "disturbing the peace" but, that has been tried before, and it's always thrown out.  You can't "disturb the peace" by breaking no actual laws.

2014-05-05 06:20:15 PM

I don't have a problem with a rifle slung over the shoulder like the guy on the right.  But if they walked in with them like the 2 on the left I could see heart rates quickening.  Hopefully they were not carrying them around like that and only held them like that for the picture.

Being afraid of being shot is perfectly rational.

/ I totally agree. But, as the law is written, it's their right. And its the constitutional equivalent of trolling.  They do it for shock value, on the premise of "education of the public" but in reality, its trolling.  They WANT the cops to show up so they can video them doing nothing "as no law has been broken" and post it to youtube..  Look how we showed the cops our RIGHTS.  Sighs.  Yes, they had the right to do that, but...they are still assholes.

nijika: carrying fully loaded rifles around a family restaurant


Well they knew better than to go to a convenience store or mom and pop joint, they would have gotten blown away.

I understand 'protesting your right"???, but It'd make me nervous sitting there with my chitlins, eating a greaseburger.

It'd sure help if everyone who leaves a comment here states if they have ever actually seen or handled a gun in person.

I'm glad we have an eye witness here to tell us what really happened. I'm glad you can tell us first-hand that a bunch of guys with high-powered weapons walking into your place of business is nothing to be alarmed about, and that it's far better to assume no ill intent from burly assholes with the capacity to kill with with a twitch of their finger.

It would only make me nervous if I saw some kind of unsafe handling of the rifles.
 
2014-05-05 06:29:00 PM  
I know in this situation, the cops did respond, but if you call 911 and say "there's a man walking around with a big ass gun" would they just.. not respond? Because that's not particularly illegal? And if they do respond in every case, how long is it gonna take before people get tired of being questioned for carrying their big ass guns, or the cops decide you can no longer carry a big ass gun because you're freaking out the citizens?
Why would you ever think you'd need that anyway? The hell is wrong with a pistol?

JuggleGeek: The employee should have taken a pen and paper and written a note saying "We reserve the right not to serve assholes with weapons".


Or just said "GTFO, or you're trespassing." You don't need to have a specially written policy to refuse service to people carrying weapons.
 
2014-05-05 06:29:55 PM  
Dear Adolescent Gun-Humpers,

You sure seem fearful. If you don't carry your guns around, are you are constantly on the verge of shiatting your pants?

Sincerely,
The Grown-Ups
