Dem Says Pro-Gun Demonstrations ‘Need to Be Canceled’

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said over the weekend that a gun rights group shouldn’t bother rescheduling a planned march through Houston’s Fifth Ward, and that these sorts of demonstrations “need to end.”

Open Carry Texas was set to march through the political subdivision of Houston, but had to postpone the event. According to the Houston Chronicle, Jackson Lee and others gathered to say they oppose the group’s effort to raise awareness about the right to openly carry rifles and shotguns in Texas.

“We come in peace,” said Jackson Lee. “On behalf of many thousands who live in this community that are minding their daily business, Open Carry’s efforts need to stop, need to be canceled, they need to end.”

The Chronicle said the Fifth Ward is an historically black neighborhood, and that Open Carry decided to hold an event there after being criticized for only holding events in “rich white neighborhoods.”

“We also want to work with the minority community to get them more involved in their right to legally bear arms,” said Open Carry Texas leader C.J. Grisham.

The conditioning some people have soaked up like sponges since birth sickens me. It is an infection of perfectly good brain matter. Maybe if they brought in Rifle Dynamics to do a class on AK's it would go over a little better. Hell I don't know. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG AT ALL WITH TRYING TO TEACH PEOPLE ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS. Some folks just don't want to hear it because it comes from someone different than themselves. What a shame.
