This is my sense of humor,” said event organizer Barry Kooda, a musician who’s played for years around Austin. “I have a larger following than I’d like because I’m just the local yokel.”He addes he is essentially a gun rights supporter but, get this:
Kooda suggested the rally on Facebook as a light-hearted response to gun-rights activists openly carrying firearms around Texas and elsewhere, photographing themselves inside national retail and restaurant chains to suggest corporate endorsement.
I have guns, (but) leave them at home. You have rights — you just don’t have to express them all the time in people’s faces.”
Apparently the gun lovers aren't "fretting" about this...too much.
“They can bear their guitars and I’ll bear my guns — it’s all good,” said Kory Watkins, of Open Carry Tarrant County, standing outside a strip mall with a rifle slung over his shoulder. “It’s freedom of speech, doing what’s within their rights — and I support that.”And it has struck a chord with others who want to hold their own Guitar Rally: the feedback has been pretty good.
I love it.
