Besides having the nerve to be opinionated women, they actually had the nerve to speak out against the all powerful NRA and their knuckle dragging devotees.
"Fresh from the success of cancelling the Million Armed Man March in Washington, DC, gun advocates in Texas found a more appropriate target than a large metropolitan police force: four moms having lunch. Forty armed members of Open Carry Texas (not affiliated with the month of October) staked out the parking lot outside the Dallas Blue Mesa Grill, where four Gyno-Americans were holed up plotting the downfall of the Second Amendment, which the Founding Fathers clearly intended as a bulwark against the Hounding Mothers. This may sound like overkill, but you never know when one of those chicks is going to drop a Porsche on you.
ThinkProgress was first to highlight the incident, which pitted the four members of Moms Demand Action against forty members of Open Carry Texas:
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.
MDA later released a statement calling OCT “gun bullies” who “disagree[d] with our goal of changing America’s gun laws and policies to protect our children and families.” The statement added that the members and restaurant customers were “terrified by what appeared to be an armed ambush.” A member of OCT responded by tweeting, “I guess I’m a #gunbullies #Comeandtakeit.”According to USA Today, however, the restaurant manager did call the police:
“We are aware that a group did gather in a shopping area in Arlington Saturday,” Tiara Ellis Richard of the Arlington Police office of communication said in an e-mail to USA TODAY. “Officers were notified and arrived at the location. There were no issues that we are aware of, and no arrests occurred.”
…Chris Barton, the CFO of Blue Mesa Grill, said that the manager called 911 at 11:35 a.m., shortly after the armed group arrived.The open carry group insists that it wasn’t trying to intimidate the moms, but simply to peacefully assemble with assault weapons. They also pointed out that while the mainstream media will focus on photos like this one of the group posing for a photo, they want the world to know that they were posing for a photo. Besides repeatedly explaining that their mission is simply to ”condition Texans to feel safe around law-abiding citizens that choose to carry them,” [Source]
“When the manager called, he told them (the police dispatcher) what was going on,” Barton said. “They said that if they are having a peaceful demonstration, they are within their legal rights.”
He said the police did arrive as the group was leaving the restaurant area to walk to a nearby Hooters.
Of course they were just there to peacefully assemble. Just a bunch of guys going down to meet four women who have the nerve to speak out against them.
Forget the assault weapons strapped on their shoulders, those women needed some "conditioning". (Digression alert. Can you imagine if that was a bunch of law abiding brothers rolling up on a restaurant like that to make a political point? The SWAT team would have been there faster that Usain Bolt running for a medal.)
Of course, the wingnuts and their friends are saying that the photo you see with this post is deceiving. They have posted their own picture to show how the pose "really" looked, and they are calling this some kind of liberal left wing plot to make them look bad.
They don't need any help to look bad; they do a good job of that all by themselves.
And speaking of bad, check out the comments after the blog post in the wingnut blog that I linked. These people are, in a word, nuts!
But it's not just them; the polititricksters they elect and send to Washington are just as crazy.
I guess now we know why congress has an approval rating of 9%. NINE PERCENT!
I hope that my friends on the right remember that number the next time that they start having multiple orgasms over the president's approval rating which is in the high thirties.
He (Obama) has not exactly been setting the world on fire, either. But hey, you know that old saying: "In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king."
