TX:Action 10 Gets Open Carry Announcement Right

An open carry march in Texas

This is an interesting announcement at Action10 news in Corpus Christi, Texas.  What makes it interesting is that their is no castigation of the open carriers, no attacks on them as "frightening", no characterization of their event as a danger to society.   In addition, the short item accurately describes the motives of the event organizers, as they have stated them.   Here is the article, from

CORPUS CHRISTI - A group of gun owners across the state will continue peaceful demonstrations asking for change in restrictive open carry laws.

The goal is to get the public and Texas legislature to amend laws that do not allow handgun gun owners to openly carry their weapons.

As it stands, gun owners are only able to carry rifles or shotguns out in the open. Yet the state forces handguns to be concealed at all times.

This weekend the local Open Carry group will be at Target to educate shoppers about their cause.
It is particularly noteworthy that this notice was published just as the old media is creating a plethora of emotional rants calling for exactly the kind of gun control laws that failed so spectacularly in the recent knife, car and gun attacks in Santa Barbara.

Normalization seems to be working in Texas.

You are welcome. The anti-rights crowd work very hard to create a negative perception of open carry events.
