The Daily Mail reports:
Local law enforcement was called in to break up a confrontation between gun control advocates and those attending protesting outside the NRA Convention in Houston – with a group of far-right Proud Boys joining in the fight.
Hundreds of people calling for gun control following the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas gathered outside the George R. Brown Convention Center on Saturday for the second day of the NRA Convention.
In response, a group of about 20 members of the far-right Proud Boy group appeared as counter-protesters and hurled anti-gay slurs at the nearly 200 protesters.
The far-right Washington Times reports:
The Proud Boys were denied entry Saturday to the National Rifle Association’s annual convention.
Security guards blocked a small group of the far-right organization from entering the security perimeter around the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston where the NRA is holding its annual meeting.
The security agents told The Washington Times that NRA officials directed them not to allow Proud Boys through the gate. The scene at the gate had become chaotic with NRA members, who were wearing credentials, exchanging taunts with gun-control protesters gathered across the street.

Some people need to call their dads, uncles, or brothers, and tell them to go home. pic.twitter.com/wU95nONyRL
