Flip the Crowd

RECEIVED Sat., June 7, 2014

Dear Editor,
    Regarding “Point Austin: We'll Always Have ... Mass Murder” [News, June 6]: An interesting response to the open carry groups would be to mirror them but flip what seems to be a common characteristic of these groups. In other words, have large groups of black people openly carry around AK-47s and AR-15s in the small towns where many of the open carry people live.
    I suspect that many of the open carry people might gain the ability to understand why people feel threatened when armed groups of “those people” are walking around the Dairy Queens and Burger Kings in their own neighborhoods.
