Anti-Gun Texas Women Hang Out With Open Carriers

Anti-Gun Texas Women Hang Out With Open Carriers

anti-gun_womenAnti-gunners don't like any of us, but the subset of gun owners that gets them completely unhinged is the open-carry crowd. That group occasions heartburn among other gun owners sometimes, but their best endorsement is the rage they cause on the other side. If they're making the antis that mad, they must be doing something right.

Come And Take It is an Austin, Texas group that has been conducting regular open-carry walks for some time. Until recently, this was all without much fanfare, but a couple of local women, one a former "performance artist," decided to protest CATI by turning up at the walk and loudly confronting the open carriers while topless. It was initially thought the women were affiliated with Moms Demand Action, the Mike Bloomberg front group, but apparently they were local freelancers.


If the pair was out for publicity, the gambit failed, since it appears the only notice the stunt got was in pro-or anti-gun websites, with the exception of the left-wing British newspaper, The Guardian, which carried a first-person account from one of the women.



The potential connection to MDA is belied by the cheesy homemade signs the duo carried, with the usual canard that gun owners like guns because they are, presumably, less well-endowed than "progressive" men. That one wasn't particularly clever or funny 50 years ago, and it's no more clever or funny today; it's just tired.

The exhibitionists apparently plan to shadow the CATI walks in coming months, and that's just fine. They can get a little sunshine and further illustrate the point that open-carriers aren't criminals and lunatics, but just regular folks making a point. They also will illustrate the point that the women on our side are a lot better looking.
