TEXAS: 40 Armed Gun Nuts Intimidate Meeting Of Gun Control Group

Think Progress reports:

On Saturday, nearly 40 armed men, women, and children waited outside a Dallas, Texas area restaurant to protest a membership meeting for the state chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a gun safety advocacy group formed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. According to a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action (MDA), the moms were inside the Blue Mesa Grill when members of Open Carry Texas (OCT) — an open carry advocacy group — “pull[ed] up in the parking lot and start[ed] getting guns out of their trunks.” The group then waited in the parking lot for the four MDA members to come out. The spokeswoman said that the restaurant manager did not want to call 911, for fear of “inciting a riot” and waited for the gun advocates to leave. The group moved to a nearby Hooters after approximately two hours.

Right wing sites are complaining about news coverage of the incident, taking issue in particular with the above photo which they point out is merely the reverse angle of the gun advocates posing for a group photo. Both sides are battling on Twitter at the hashtag #gunbullies.  According to the gun nuts, a group of suburban moms are the “real bullies.”  And not, you know, 40 people with rifles and handguns.
