Is Chris Cox A Liar
NRA-ILA Opposes Open Carry
Once news spread of a statement from the NRA that seemed to call the actions of open carry activists "weird" went viral, members of Open Cary Texas sent out a rebuttal
claiming the following -
"The NRA has lost its relevance and sided with#guncontrolextremists and their lapdog media,"
The mainstream media wasted no time spotlighting the friction between the groups, and sparked calls, emails, tweets and social media posts in opposition to the NRA comments on open carry supporters.
The NRA Chief Lobbyist Chris W. Cox recently addressed the NRA article on open carry demonstrations in Texas in a video interview claiming that the NRA fully and "unequivocally" supports open carry. Cox even went a step further in claiming that the NRA has been the leader of open carry efforts across the country.
Now I find that hard to believe since I have not come across any positive action by the NRA to restore open carry. His statement also seems to contradict the NRA's stance on open carry in California.
According to CaliforniaRightToCarry.org, who recently put out their own press release, accusing the NRA and, in a video, the Second Amendment Foundation of supporting the California open carry ban as well as opposing their lawsuit to restore open carry in California.
The NRA Supports Open Carry Except When The NRA Opposes Open Carry
