    How about the OP?

    "National Review Online has called the OCT meeting a pro-Second Amendment protest, but labels aren’t really the central issue here: nearly 40 OCT members stood outside the Blue Mesa Grill on Saturday, waiting for the MDA meeting to end. And they brought their guns."

    "Nearly 40", huh? I count 18 in the picture, so yeah, nearly 40 (divided by 2). "Waiting for the MDA meeting to end and they brought their guns." Yeah, no sensationalism there.

    Also, OP has link to OCT wrong. Wouldn't want people visiting the enemy's page, huh?

    Or...

    "If a bunch of men with guns showed up outside a restaurant, it might make anyone inside a wee bit nervous. If you happened to be one of four members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense who had gathered for lunch at that restaurant and you looked out the window and saw a group of 40 rifle-toting people staring back at you, you could be forgiven for freaking out."

    Men? The picture clearly shows women and children, too. Four members? Other articles say it was a meeting. Which is it? Could the LA Times be lying to make the numbers skew? There's that number 40 again. Again...divide that by 2.

    Those are a pretty long way from taking up sniper positions and trapping the women for hours, don't you think?

    Is that how you are characterizing those guys posing for a group photo? Taking up sniper positions?

    Sigh. You know I wasn't being literal, but I guess you have to pretend I was because you have no retort for the sensationalism and lying. Forty rifle-toting men waiting outside for four women to come out of a restaurant is a lie. Plain and simple.

    I am not even sure we are disagreeing (well other than my earlier point that it is undignified that so many people just spaz out at the sight of a gun).

    Yes, it looks like the report of the number was wrong. It was more like 30 people and only 18 or so were men.
    "Hey, it didn't take us 40 armed men to show up those four moms! We could do it with only 18!!!"
    I guess that must be the courage that semi-automatic weapons gave them.

    And if they were put in fear by a bunch of people with guns posing for photos with an American flag, they are asininely hypersenstive and have no reasonable complaint whatsoever.

    I think you have to figure out your silly sniper questions before you're allowed back in. I mean, damn.

    Call 911, I think you're having a stroke.

    It was a stupid stunt. All it would take is one person inside the restaurant calling the police and things could get out of hand very quickly.

    Unless one of these same timid souls were on the police force, they show up, see nothing illegal going on, and leave. If anything got out of hand, it would be because police have the same "zomg guns exist!" panic as the entirety of the antigun movement appears to have.

    Yeah police are real drama queens when it comes to dealing with people on the streets with guns. What a bunch of p's.

    The manager of the restaurant did call 911, but police were already there because other citizens had called them.
    Michi's right, nothing illegal was going on. That doesn't make it OK.

    No, being okay is what made it okay. This is a completely irrational pile of horsecrap of a controversy. Only a complete nitwit in that restaurant would have been concerned that they were in any danger from this group. Sorry, there aren't actually two sides to every issue. Groups of dissonant interest appearing at each other's organizational activities is pretty normal anymore, and of course we have leftists of various stripes to thank for that, but it is sort of how we roll now, and OCT isn't excluded from the game just because we have become a society of ninnies about the fact that weapons exist and don't radiate evil-flakes.
