Not at all intimidating, no menace whatever.

Further, Think Progress claims that open carry is illegal in Texas. But it is only illegal to open carry handguns, not long guns/rifles such as the group carried.

This is deception, this is Think Progress, this is the progressive mindset. Lying doesn’t matter, the ends justify the means.
