A bunch of gun toting crackers marching in the Fifth Ward?

Boggles the imagination.

Sounds like a situation where predominantly black pro 2nd marchers would have been more effective.

One would hope that local Fifth Ward residents would join in on the march.

Marching into a black neighborhood looking like a white lynch mob is sure to win a lot of hearts and minds. /s

I’m dyed in the wool 2nd amendment but whose bonehead idea was this. Hey guys, lets go provoke a bunch of black folks by parading through their neighborhood with our ARs slung over our shoulders.

Really? Common sense is a virtue. For shame.

Wars are won with a hundreds of strategies, and thousands of tactics. Each plays a role in the successful outcome.

This march is but one of those strategies in our war with those who would take away our guns.

When are these guys going to realize that they are becoming an embarrassment?

Backfired in CA. Won't work in TX.

Flame away.

I was going to post this but I decided not to. I did not want to start a war. There is foul language in the article.

I think these guys are a bunch of idiots who do more harm then good to the 2nd amendment.

They showed up in Dallas and fed the homeless, right next door to the Sheriff’s office - a very black community - and nobody batted an eye.

Black Panthers carry long guns all the time in public, with no problem. This pic was in Jasper TX, a very white community.

From Tom Gresham's Truth Squad Newsletter...

"Open carry demonstrations are performances. Nothing less. They are done to elicit a response. They are, in effect, public relations "stunts." I don't use the word stunts in a negative way. The idea is to move public opinion. Therefore, as with any public relations effort, or any performance, attention to details can make or break the performance.

If you want the public to come away with the impression that good people carry guns openly (a good goal, by the way), it's worthwhile, I think, to make sure that the performers appear (in behavior, in build, in dress, etc.) in such a way that they are viewed favorably.

In the context of a performance, I submit that wearing ragged military-looking clothes, wearing nasty T-shirts, and (unfortunately) selecting (or not selecting, actually) performers who are 150 pounds overweight, wearing boonie caps, does not work toward the desired result. If you were the casting director for this performance, is this who you would choose? Is this how you would dress them?

It actually has nothing to do with whether a person is good or not. It is all about playing to the prejudices, perceptions, and biases of the public. In sales, and in politics, perception really is reality. If the public perceives open carry activists to be slobs, or goofballs, or homeless, or nut jobs -- based on how they look -- then we have failed at the public relations effort. If, however, they see well-dressed (slacks or jeans and tucked-in polo shirts??) men, the reaction, and the perception, is different."
