Last time the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas held a gun buyback event, it caused a stir. Will this one cause the same outcry?
Members of the gun control organization Mothers Demand Action found members of Open Carry Texas outside one of their meetings in Arlington on Saturday. What happened between the two groups is subject to interpretation.
A few days after the holidays, Derek Poe—a Beaumont gun store owner—was arrested for walking around a shopping mall with an AR-15 strapped to his back. While Texas allows for long guns to be openly carried in public, the question about whether or not Poe was committing a crime is more complicated than it might seem.
Open carry supporters in Texas have been very active in making their fellow citizens aware of their right to carry long-arm rifles in public—and they took their message to San Antonio Police over the weekend.
