For whatever reason, the open-carry debate continues to play out in venues where people generally go to relax and drink refreshing things: A meeting of four women from advocacy group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was disrupted Saturday afternoon by 40 members of Open Carry Texas, who lined up in the parking lot outside Blue Mesa Grill to pose and preen with a variety of firearms, including some jumbo semi-automatic rifles. The restaurant’s manager refrained from calling 911 for fear of inciting the group. In any event, following “two hours of staking out the parking lot, the members of Open Carry Texas went to a nearby Hooters restaurant,” which sounds about right.
