Where do you stand on this issue?
Check it out:
Earlier today, we reported that the NRA, through their NRA-ILA organization, released a statement condemning the open carry of long guns into private businesses.
Now, Open Carry Texas has released a response to the NRA statement on their Facebook page. The above image was included with the post. It reads as follows (paragraph breaks added for readability),
It is unfortunate that an organization that claims to be dedicated to the preservation of gun rights would attack another organization fighting so hard for those rights in Texas. The fact is that the NRA hasn’t been able to get open carry passed in Texas since the right was first taken away from us when Jim Crow laws were passed in the 1860s, making us one of only 5 states where it is still illegal.
The NRA has refused to learn for themselves how Open Carry Texas (OCT) conducts itself other than what the liberal media and Bloomberg funded gun control extremists have falsely portrayed. The real ignorance in their statement is that it was completely unnecessary. OCT – along with Come And Take It Texas, Texas Carry and Gun Rights Across America – has already changed its methods and the whole world is aware of that.
