Daily Kos Compares Open Carry Texas With Terror Group ISIS
Look, I know the post at the Daily Kos that compares Open Carry Texas to the terror group ISIS (also known as ISIL) is meant to be tongue in cheek and snarky, but even so, it’s in completely horrible taste.
First of all, yes, I have not been the biggest proponent of OCT’s *PAST* tactics, but those have changed and the group is seeking a positive change for gun rights in Texas. However, while I have been against one specific action (carrying long guns into private businesses) I also recognize that the group is operating safely and with a specific political goal in mind.
To compare a peaceful political group operating in the United States with a terrorist organization that has released video of horrific executions of innocent civilians, even jokingly, is in extremely poor taste.
Maybe the Daily Kos would be interested to know that ISIS has outlawed all civilian firearm ownership in areas they control. If you want to see what a disarmed populace looks like then look no further than the hour and a half film released by ISIS in which dozens, if not hundreds, of people are gruesomely killed on camera.
