Mayor: A Gang Of Armed White Men Will Be Standing Along Parade Route, Do Not Be Alarmed
Open Carry activists would have us believe that people are not afraid of guns while they strut into family friendly establishments with military-style weapons strapped to their backs.
[su_center_ad]The Angleton Mayor’s office was informed that Open Carry Texas members will attend the Brazoria County Fair Parade in Angleton on Saturday and felt it necessary to issue a press release “so that citizens attending the parade will not be alarmed.”
Via Your Houston News:
The Fair Parade committee approved this group’s application. They have agreed not to carry any firearms in the parade; however there may be members of the group along the parade route displaying rifles, shotguns and black powder pistols in open holsters, which is legal in TX.
This information is being released in the interest of Public Safety so that citizens attending the parade will not be alarmed if they sec non-uniformed individuals carrying weapons.
So a press release was issued so that the public will not be “alarmed” when they see an armed gang of white guys standing along the parade route displaying their long guns. Open Carry Texas and other groups have been marching in parades lately as a form of self-promotion, which they no doubt will call ‘exercising their Second Amendment rights.”
What these groups are trying to do is desensitize the population so that witnessing their tactics will eventually not be an issue with residents in neighborhoods they invade. Because their rights trump yours. Because they are just that f*cking special. Because sometimes intimidation works and they will push the boundaries.
Because they don’t care what you think, if you’re uncomfortable or if your children are frightened.
Big thanks to my friend out there for sending me the link.[su_csky_ad]
