Cowards With Guns Watch: Fanatics Once Again Attempt to Intimidate Mothers Against Gun Violence

“Hi, we’re just here to share our opinion. Non-violently of course. And it’s not fascism when we do it, bitches!”

While we’ve discussed cowards with guns who attempt to intimidate political opponents before, let’s review this blog’s view on such events:

A hallmark of civilization is that we settle our differences without resorting to intimidation. Though I suppose if you know you don’t have an argument, you can always just bring a gun.

If you prefer a more eloquent version, I’ll turn it over to Thers from Whiskey Fire:

Anyway, what we have here is a situation where a relatively small minority of Americans are claiming the right, ultimately backed up by their possession of weapons, to define the True Nature of American Freedom.

Which is fine, I guess, at least according to CNN…

How this differs in any important philosophical regard from the position, of, say, the Provisional Irish Republican Army, I cannot say.

How it differs in any practical sense, well (McVeigh cough) who knows.

With that as prelude, here’s the latest armed attempt to intimidate political opponents (boldface mine):

On Saturday, nearly 40 armed men, women, and children waited outside a Dallas, Texas area restaurant to protest a membership meeting for the state chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a gun safety advocacy group formed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

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.”

Mind you, the scared patrons and workers are residents of supposed gun country–not us pansy-ass Northern libruls.

Forty armed people against four unarmed people–that’s courage. What fucking wimps. Forget the lunacy they stand for, are they so insecure they have to intimidate those who disagree with them? (this is rhetorical for those in the slow polemic group).

And of course the gun cowards (remember, the bigger the gun, the smaller the ‘pistol’!) relocated to a Hooters:


Fucking weenies.

    So Texas has a Stand-Your-Ground law, which states that:

    “A person who has a right to be present at the location where the deadly force is used, who has not provoked the person against whom the deadly force is used, and who is not engaged in criminal activity at the time the deadly force is used is not required to retreat before using deadly force…”

    One is required to have a reasonable belief that there is a threat of imminent bodily harm, death, or sexual assault to someone. Of course, “reasonable” is exactly why laws are so impossible, and their application so unequal–as far as I’m concerned, the only reasonable belief about a person carrying an assembled assault weapon is that she or he intends an imminent threat of violent death to everyone else; in light of the number of public mass shootings, it would be phenomenally unreasonable to assume that anyone carrying such a weapon didn’t intend to use it.

    But based on that, wouldn’t the people in the restaurant, accurately perceiving themselves to be under siege from an unexplained, heavily armed, organized hostile force, have been entirely within their rights to themselves gun down the parking-lot paramilitaries?

    Gun-totin’ conservatives’ preferred legal structure only empowers them because the other side refuses to use it in the same way.

    It’s amazing to me that there are people so terrified of existence itself, they feel they have to be ready to kill nearly everything at any given moment. I don’t understand how they don’t kill themselves to end their own misery. I don’t see why they don’t kill themselves. I see no point in not doing it if death is literally looming around every corner as these people seem to think.
    It’s either that or they really have a hard on for shooting people to death.

    And, more related to this article, if 40 people showed up outside the house (but were still on public property like the sidewalk) each one of those wuss bags would be terrified and keep their guns handy. They wouldn’t see it as “people just demonstrating their rights.”

    The only reason I don’t see that as a good counter protest tactic is because of the high likelihood one of those dipshits would start shooting to sate their murderboners.

    Looks like I caught you MIKE with your pants down you big fat lier.
    You must think you’re slick only posting a side shot of these 2nd Amendment supporters while they were taking a group photo. The polls show your propaganda is failing.

    Below is a link to a front and side photo. Both angles are shown so you can get the full context of what was going on.
