Must be the accent. They were saying, "We won't see colords".

i'd love to see a gang, er, sorry - a group of young african-american males walking through a mall brandishing AR-15s and AK-47s in the name of "open carry." i wonder how  your average white republican would feel about that.

On his blog, Houston open carry activist David Amad said that the group's intention was never racist, that his group was baited into planning the march by anti-gun activists.

"In order to respond directly to this challenge by a liberal, anti-gun race baiter, we planned an event in 5th Ward. It was a spur of the moment, 'we'll prove you wrong' rush effort," said Amad.


"We react blindly to perceived threats and challenges without thinking through the implications, but this should in no way be taken to mean that we are irresponsible gun owners."

A bunch of armed white dudes marching through a predominantly black neighborhood? What could possibly go right?
 
2014-06-24 04:13:29 PM  
There's like an official open-carry look:  overweight guy wearing cargo shorts, baggy T-shirt, baseball cap, and wraparound shades.
 
2014-06-24 04:20:11 PM  
How did they ever think this was a good idea?
 
2014-06-24 04:23:45 PM  
Why exactly do open carry activists want to open carry?

I don't think they would make it into the mall before being arrested or shot.

On the hypothesis that a right un-exercised is a right lost.

Much like how our collective silence has led each and every one of us to be forced to quarter soldiers during peacetime.

The last time that happened, Ronald Reagan signed a law banning open carry. I'm not certain if it was Ronald Reagan, THE Republican Jesus or Ronald Reagan, actual human-ish being.

Also, being unable to see color will make it difficult to get a solid gig in electronics or electrical work. Maybe the open carry thing is just a substitution for their disappointment in being unable to land cool jobs in certain fields due to their disability.

This is very concerning to me since I have never been on trial and have not had an opportunity to exercise my rights to face my accuser, or to a speedy trial or to have an advocate at my side.  So basically since I have never exercised those rights I'd be pretty screwed if I was ever charged with a crime.  I sure hope that those open carry morons rush out and commit minor felonies to make sure and exercise those rights as well because those are important rights.

I can't wait until the Dems eventually round up all gun owners and ship them off to internment camps. At least I know I'll be safe.

The open carry people ALL need to get round up and shipped off. What they are doing is embarrassing this great country of ours.
 
2014-06-24 05:04:06 PM  
Besides, what is a 'black neighborhood' or a 'white neighborhood?'"

A neighborhood in which most of the residents are black or most are white.

See, the kind of person who have to ask this question are exactly the kind of people gun-grabbers are talking about when we say "How about we make it just a tad more difficult for the crazy people to have guns.

Pictures like that are why gun control used to be something the right wing very vigorously argued for.

FTFY. And the T-shirt is "roomy", not "baggy".

Silly people. The Gun Control Act of 1968 was passed to disarm blacks and now some Texans want to carry guns into black communities? They need to keep the guns in safe white neighborhoods like the Democrats intended in '68.

the operative word is 'think'.   they did not do any thinking.  typical for Texas boys.

Funny how the "average white Republican" smear gets thrown around. A little silly. Someone who has passed and qualified with their firearms in order to carry them aren't your problem. You know exactly who the problem would be. I'd just end up (pardon the pun) shooting the shiat with them and comparing cool stuff we liked about our rifles. You can, you know, learn a lot from others that carry: what works, what breaks, what's cheaply made, etc. some of you need to quit being such whiny babies. (PSST...your "average white Democrat" can carry too...it'll be okay)

You have to admit, it's kind of refreshing for someone to readily and plainly admit they are reactionary and not very good at thinking things through.

Ahh OCT....its like a gay pride parade except without people in banana hammocks on roller skates


But it worked for the gays.....so they do have that going for them.
 
2014-06-24 05:07:46 PM  
If they do this again, I'm going to found a "Shotguns for Brothers" charity organization that will provide a free shotgun for every African American that can legally purchase one in that neighborhood, with the agreement that they all openly carry the firearm the day of the march and spend the time of the march in their front lawns.

I am a strong advocate of self defense, but even libtards get a few things right once in a while.  The pistol needs to be in plain sight where everyone can see it, and the long guns need to be kept at home.

And all you bastards who want to put my ass in a concentration camp: I have been in your face since 1965, and I ain't dead yet.

They had to cancel. Their shipment of Klan cloaks was held up in Austin.

2014-06-24 05:10:56 PM  
Meh, not every event cancellation is race related. I'm getting a kick out of all of the people who would be biatching if they HAD marched who are now biatching because they AREN'T marching. Nobody's ever happy with anything anymore, it's not a beautiful day in the neighborhood unless you can figure how how to complain about it, I guess.

I live in Houston and I would pay money to watch these a$$hats walk around 5th Ward like a modern day White Supremacist group.

Why do you even need guns? To shoot shiat? Why do you need a rifle? To hunt?
 
2014-06-24 05:12:20 PM  
I was taught what I believe to be a very important rule when it comes to guns: These are not toys, don't pick it up (other than cleaning, etc.) unless you're ready and willing to use it - don't make empty threats with guns because the other guy will always know if you are bluffing and now you are in real danger.

Point is: If a guy with a gun comes into my kid's park aren't I well within my rights to assume he intends to use it and thus, don't I have a right to shoot first?  Think about the answer and then think about what these open carry whackos would do if three black guys walked onto their kids playground with visible guns.  Well, think about what they fantasize they would do - not what they would actually do, which I imagine to be either start shooting indiscriminately or stand there seething with rage and fear but do nothing.

The Gun Control Act of 1968 made it illegal for convicted felons and mental defectives to own guns.

In short, you fail at everything you have ever tried and everyone you know is disappointed by you.
