Another man at the end of the video, says that he is a gun owner and 2A supporter, but was offended by the man’s actions given the circumstances.
The man was not committing any crimes, as it is legal to openly carry a firearm in the State of Texas.
What is your opinion of this man doing what he did? Do you support his decision to make his way to the scene while armed, or do you feel that he should have shown his support in another location? Chime in below.
