Dozens Of Armed Cowards Confront Unarmed Moms At Dallas Restaurant

Around three dozen Texas men with open carry permits showed up at a Dallas restaurant, armed to the teeth, to stake out a Moms Demand Action meeting of four women who support laws designed to curb gun violence. Some of the men crouched down by vehicles in the parking lot brandishing semi-automatic weapons.

These Texas men, who fancy themselves as tough guys because they can hold a gun, must really be insecure. How else do you explain grown men who are afraid to walk around in public without carrying a gun to feel safe? While the four women in the meeting at Blue Mesa Grill are secure enough to walk around Dallas without being heavily armed, the macho guys in the parking lot are too scared to leave their guns at home.

These open carry people are afraid to go out in public without a gun. They have to carry an AR-15 into Starbuck’s because they are too chicken to get a cup of coffee without fearing that somebody might jump them for their wallet at the Espresso counter.

These brave men are also apparently so threatened by Moms Demand Action, that they feel they must resort to intimidation and bullying tactics to make their point, whatever that point is. Does it really take three dozen men with semi-automatic rifles to confront four unarmed moms? Those must be some pretty tough moms and some pretty wimpy men.

Now of course, the open carry folks fancy themselves heroes who will someday have the opportunity to save a theater full of people in the event of an emergency. However, if they pass their time by impersonating an amateur SWAT team ready to shoot moms outside a Texas bar-n-grill, maybe they are not ready for prime time.

The image of a bunch of gun-toting cowards posing as snipers in a parking lot, merely underscores the obvious fact that many of these 2nd Amendment clowns are not responsible gun owners. Instead, they are gun fetishists who crave the opportunity to shoot something to prove their manhood. Yet, if they are too afraid to walk around in Dallas, Texas in broad daylight without packing heat, their claims to manhood are already on a very weak foundation.

Without their guns, do these men really fear to tread, outside a family restaurant where fearless unarmed moms are fed?
