Facts are stupid things to publications that deliberately misinform the low information voting, liberal sheeple who gobble up the garbage spewed at them on a daily basis.
Case in point: The liberal blog, Think Progress, instigated outrage when it published an article and photo showing the supposed armed, “intimidation” tactics of group of members from Open Carry Texas protesting a Saturday meeting of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America in a mall parking lot.

From Think Progress:
According to a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action (MDA), the moms were inside the Blue Mesa Grill when members of Open Carry Texas (OCT) — an open carry advocacy group — “pull[ed] up in the parking lot and start[ed] getting guns out of their trunks.” The group then waited in the parking lot for the four MDA members to come out. The spokeswoman said that the restaurant manager did not want to call 911, for fear of “inciting a riot” and waited for the gun advocates to leave. The group moved to a nearby Hooters after approximately two hours.
MDA later released a statement calling OCT “gun bullies” who “disagree[d] with our goal of changing America’s gun laws and policies to protect our children and families.” The statement added that the members and restaurant customers were “terrified by what appeared to be an armed ambush.” A member of OCT responded by tweeting, “I guess I’m a #gunbullies #Comeandtakeit.”
Now for the reality – the factual truth of the photograph, shown in its proper context by the gun rights group:
They were posing for a picture with the American flag.
