People need to realize that these kinds of crazy stunts damage the cause of gun rights. The liberal media inevitably use these stories to make gun supporters look silly.
The Second Amendment is about having the ability to protect yourself and your family. It isn’t about taking part in acts of political theater that alienate 98% of Americans. I’m pretty sure that I am not the only gun owner who believes that.
And yet the gun rights movement lets itself be defined by people who think it is a good idea to bring military grade weapons into family restaurants, and then post pictures of it online for everyone to see. Why?
Pro-gun politicians and the NRA need to speak out against these inflammatory tactics more often, before they do more damage to the cause. If they don’t, there’s no telling how much the Second Amendment will suffer.
