    On May 30 the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) released a statement on the open carry demonstrations that have been recently carried out in Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Chili's, and Sonic restaurants in Texas.
    These are the demonstrations where members of Open Carry Texas (OCT) legally carry AR-15s and AK-47s into restaurants as part of their bid to see the open carry of handguns legalized in the Lone Star State. The NRA-ILA described the demonstrations as "downright weird" and "counter productive for the gun owning community."

    Open carry texas' president: 'i'm leaving the nra'

    HOUSTON, Texas--Armed members of the activist group Open Carry Texas (OCT) were asked to leave Sonic and Chili’s restaurants last month after they entered with AK-47's in full display. In response to footage of the events, which received national press coverage, the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) released a statement on May 30 calling the demonstrations "downright weird" and "counter productive for the gun owning community." Now Texas gun group members are threatening to leave the NRA.
    "I'm leaving the NRA," C.J. Grisham, President of OCT, told Breitbart Texas. "I'm an Endowment Life Member which is two levels above Life Member--I'm tearing up the cards and certificates I've gotten from the NRA."

    The level of stupidity these OCT folks display is remarkable.

    I agree. You're much safer and with a holstered pistol.

    because it IS weird and it IS counter productive. Like a 10th dan black belt who walks into restaurants and crowded places wearing his black belt over his regular attire. Does he have to flaunt his expertise ? Did they have to flaunt their right to open carry ?

    They're scaring or disgusting some, or maybe many, supporters and sympathizers of the 2nd Ammendment into opposition, just for the heck of it.

    IMHO- I believe a business has the right to refuse entrance to any person for any reason - period!

    Yes, I think the news here is that the NRA is actually telling another pro-gun group that they are crazy.
