Follow-up: Open Carry Texas plans rally to teach Ector sheriff 'a lesson'

In a video posted last week, Open Carry Texas Vice President David Amad said the group will return to Odessa and teach Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis “a lesson” following the arrests of some group members for carrying guns outside a West Odessa bar.

Six men were arrested earlier this month after openly carrying rifles in a lot adjacent to Big Daddy Zane’s. They said they were supporting the owner, who opened against Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive orders. She was also arrested for violating those orders, as was another employee.

Griffis said in a press conference the day after the arrests that the presence of Open Carry Texas was meant to intimidate law enforcement and that the men were not there to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Now, members of Open Carry Texas are planning to return to Big Daddy Zane’s and hold a second rally on June 6, according to a Facebook event and video posted on YouTube.

5. The way to stop this nonsense from these types

Is voting out the ones in power that promote it, or it will just continue to escalate until someone uses violence from political prodding. trump wants to incite others to do violence for him, then claim deniability for it.

7. If the armed protesters are not there to defend their 2nd amendment rights

But are there to "intimidate the sheriff" then the sheriff needs to go in and arrest them all for communicating threats and attempted extortion. Because that would be how I would define their actions
