Maybe It’s Just Me

June 08, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

There was a ammosexual demonstration in Houston today right across the street from the Galleria.

Click the title one to get the big one.

Check out the sign.  If you can’t make it out, it says, “Accept our Gun Fetish”.  He obviously wasn’t with them.

Okay, here’s my question.  Have you ever noticed that these people are all very unfortunate in the looks department? Okay, I know that’s mean to say.  I know they can’t help it.  But, none of them are going to be the centerfold in GQ either.  Hell, they wouldn’t even make the Academy catalog.

Really?  A parking lot at The Container Store?  That’s the best you’ve got on a Saturday in Houston?

Thanks to Mark for the heads up.

    I am very frightened by the long red thing on the table. Good lord I do not think those are legal to use in Texas and most Southern states.

    I do love the man with his sign.

    I think the sign says it all. The ammosexuals are going to be defeated by humor and ridicule. Just deserts, if you know what I mean, and I am sure your do.

  3. Beards and beer bellies…I think I’m in love.

  4. They remind me of nothing so much as a friend’s two year old demanding mommy’s attention when I’m trying to have a nice conversation with her.

    The difference is that the two year old will grow out of it.

  5. If they can parade themselves in public with their “perfectly legal” behavior, I say they need some competition. Any same-sex married people want to set up across from them with some tasteful public displays of affection? Any “I’m glad I got an abortion” sign-wavers? How about some “I don’t live in fear and I don’t need a gun to feel like a man” signage folks?

    Tell me there isn’t a racial undercurrent shared by these nutjobs. All the photos I’ve seen of these folks are white guys whose day jobs would be the tire installers and muffler changers at the local Walmart auto center, with a blond floozie sprinkled in on occasion for decoration. Haven’t seen a photo yet with anyone looking other than Caucasian.

    What is up with this? Is it just to have an excuse to show they have guns? What is the point of having them if they can’t show them off? Where can they go to even shoot one to find out just what shoddy merchandise they have spent so much money for. Because they are garbage made for the gullible.

    Two police cars in the background to control “the crowd”.

    Now if they wanted to set up shop in GWB’s neighborhood.. Or even one of the exclusive shopping centers nearby where people bring their children. Then they would draw a crowd and have plenty of attention.

    Good morning on a Monday. Some cheerful news I just read: Nia Sanchez, of Nevada, is our new Miss America. She holds a black belt, and her main talking point is that women need to learn self defense. I’m sure that some of this chunky, mouthy men will have ugly things to say about her.

    They allow smoking in public in Houston?

  13. Here’s what happened told by the guy with the sign.

    I think these guys will be hoist by their own petard!

  14. Maybe I’m wrong, but looks to me like the same few show up at all these “demonstrations”.

    I also may be mistaken about this: the guy in the red shirt looks like my down the street neighbor. (The neighbor I have who is always flying that “Don’t tread on me” flag on the front of his house). Who knew a man with a wife and a couple of kids would spend his Saturdays at the Galleria, with an assault rifle? Geesh.

    Take Back Open Carry!

    In my day “open carry” meant we could crawl from one pub to the next, or come outside and watch the St Patrick’s Day Parade, and still have our green beer in our hands.

    Also, it looks to me like, if the penny dropped and the revolution actually started, this Pretend Platoon, Queasy Company, couldn’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag. We’d be able to resell their weapons as nearly new – only dropped once! Their skivvies would be a dead loss though.

    There are laws to deal with exactly what is happening around Texas and the country! Here’s the Texas Penal Code dealing with such actions!

    TEXAS

    penal Code Sec. 42.072 – 1997. STALKING. http://law.onecle.com/texas/penal/42.072.00.html

    These demos and the armed store patrols may just be the straw that broke…..
    Business owners may be the deciding factor in this game. After all, if their customers don’t want to put up with these wackos, the bottom line is $$$.

  18. @Jan: Thanks for the link. Good solid laugh for the day.

    @sign carrier: Thanks. You have some guts. Don’t get killed. We need a lot more like you.

  19. A bunch of losers who have no power in this world except to intimidate. Pay them no mind and sooner or later Scooter and his band of misfits will be back at the trailer park (no offense to those who live in trailer parks, my heart goes out to you for having to live next door to losers).

    Maybe dryer-fabric softener sheets would stop the clinging and I hear they keep rodents away,too.

    What IS the red thing on the table?

  22. Most people don’t brag about their fetishes because:

    fet·ish:

    an inanimate object worshiped for its supposed magical powers or because it is considered to be inhabited by a spirit.
    synonyms: juju, talisman, charm, amulet.

    a course of action to which one has an excessive and irrational commitment.
    “he had a fetish for writing more opinions each year than any other justice”

    a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.
    “Victorian men developed fetishes focusing on feet, shoes, and boots”
    synonyms: fixation, obsession, compulsion, mania.

    Next thing you know they’ll be demanding to marry their guns.

    Looks like the Abbott fan club.

  24. Uncle Dave says:

    Perhaps there is room for compromise. If we concede some points to the NRA will they agree that the right to carry firearms can be restricted to those who can read, write, and have an above normal IQ? That should eliminate most of those pictured.

    24
  25. Have you noticed that losers and lowlifes just LOVE to hang out in parking lots?

    25
  26. Uncle Dave, your restrictions would probably cut off a substantial majority of gun buyers, so I can’t see the Powers That Be (NRA and gun manufacturers) going for it.

    Hey Monty, tailgating, tailgunning, whatever – it’s all the same to a redneck! (Hey Cecil, where’d you say the beer was…?)

    All of these pale males have the belligerence of a toddler in full snit mode. They appear as bedraggled as a toddler who dressed himself, too. It’s best that I don’t say anything at all about the women who accompany these males. I wonder why we aren’t seeing the pale males in business suits, or church ladies like the ones who bused in to Austin from North Carolina last summer. These pale males and their wimmin don’t seem to have real jobs to go to, since they show up for their Million (divided by a very large whole number) Munitions Marches, always during the day, always convenient for the 5:00 news cycle. Now, if a bunch of brown or yellow men showed up dressed like that, with long guns and sidearms apparent, they wouldn’t have to worry about getting media attention, would they?

  29. I enjoy the chant that Steven Colbert proposed: “We’re here! We’ve got gear! Get used to it!”

    I do feel sorry for guys who feel the need to buy a winkie because they’re dissatisfied with the one they were born with.
