NRA retracts oc statement

  1. The NRA has retracted the earlier statement about the Texas open carry debate. Now they should back up their new statement by pushing for constitutional open carry in all states.

    "the executive director of the group's lobbying arm, said in an interview Tuesday on an NRA-hosted radio show that the statement was "a mistake" and that it was written by a staffer who was expressing his personal opinion.

    "The truth is, an alert went out that referred to this type of behavior as 'weird' or somehow not normal, and that was a mistake. It shouldn't have happened," said Cox, who added that the group "unequivocally" supports open carry laws."

    "Open Carry Texas, one of the groups behind the recent demonstrations, had said if the NRA didn't retract the statement, Open Carry would withdraw its full support for the NRA.

    Tov Henderson, an Open Carry member, told WFAA-TV in Dallas that the group's clarification was refreshing.

    "Getting the clarification from them that it wasn't an official stance and that it was just a low-level employee ... it makes sense," Henderson said."
