Open Carry Advocates Shadow #MikeBrown Protesters in Dallas – No Vandalism Reported
Three members of an open carry group called Come and Take It Texas had rifles over their shoulders as they followed a small group of Ferguson protesters who marched through downtown Dallas Wednesday night.
Marchers stayed on the sidewalk the entire time and never left Lamar St. as they walked into downtown by El Centro College and returned to Dallas police headquarters where they started.
The open carry advocates said they respected the marchers’ right to protest but decided to show up to protect private property.
“We’ll stand between them and private property,” said Matthew Short, from Come and Take It.Three Texas rednecks did what the Missouri National Guard, Eric Hold and Obummer were unable to do. They kept the peace simply by being themselves.
