A group of open-carry gun rights activists were busy picking up trash while packing heat. The group called "Open Carry Texas" came in from Temple. They advocate for the right to openly carry firearms in public which is legal in the Lone Star State. The group says they are working to spread the word about gun rights.
"We're just doing an open carry clean up, this is our second one," said Randy Gonzales. "We collected about 60 pounds of trash."
Randy Gonzales with "Open Carry Texas" says they collected roughly 100 pounds of trash. Gonzalez adds the ultimate goal is to condition Texans to feel safe around law-abiding people who carry guns and encourage elected officials to pass less restrictive open carry legislation.
