NRA Calls Open Carry Texas Demonstrations 'Scary'
TEMPLE, Texas -- The National Rifle Association is calling the actions of one Texas group "downright scary" for their practice of so-called "open carry" demonstrations.
The NRA, staunch advocates of Americans' Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms, criticizes Open Carry Texas for its demonstrations that include gathering in public places with large, high-powered rifles.
"Lets not mince words," the NRA wrote on its website said, "not only is it rare, its downright weird and certainly not a practical way to go normally about your business while being prepared to defend yourself. To those who are not acquainted with the dubious practice of using public displays of firearms as a means to draw attention to oneself or ones cause, it can be downright scary. It makes folks who might normally be perfectly open-minded about firearms feel uncomfortable and question the motives of pro-gun advocates."
Several national restaurant chains, notably, Sonic, Chipotle, and Chili's joined Starbucks, Wendy's, Jack in the Box, and Applebee's in banning firearms from their premises after protests by Open Carry Texas, Fox News reports.
"Using guns merely to draw attention to yourself in public not only defies common sense, it shows a lack of consideration and manners," the NRA wrote. "Thats not the Texas way. And thats certainly not the NRA way."
Fox News says Open Carry Texas slammed the NRA on Monday in a post on its Facebook page, saying, "The NRA has refused to learn for themselves how Open Carry Texas conducts itself other than what the liberal media and [former New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg funded gun control extremists have falsely portrayed. The more the NRA continues to divide its members by attacking some aspects of gun rights instead of supporting all gun rights, the more support it will lose."
