A group of topless moms crashed a open-carry demonstration over the weekend in Austin, Texas, Buzzpo.com reports.
The group CATI (Come and Take It) was staging a protest walk in downtown Austin on Saturday when several bare-chested women joined the party, toting signs that read, “Boobs feed babies and bring Joy… Guns only bring death! More boobs, less guns!”
While its unclear if the women were members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun control organization, they did allegedly reference the group’s “victories” over the past few months, e.g. the statements issued by Target and Chipotle requesting gun owners to leave their firearms at home.
In addition to heckling the pro-gun advocates, the women accused them of being white supremacist, said Thomas Jefferson, CATI’s Austin leader.
“They followed us into a small coffee shop and called us the Aryan Brotherhood,” said Jefferson. “They continually used terms like white pride and white power. Their allegations are obvious nonsense as we not only have many African American members in our group, but also on our walk today.”
UPDATE: 7/28/14, 6:50 p.m. EST, Erika Soto Lamb, the communications director for Moms Demand Action, said the topless ladies are not affiliated with Bloomberg’s pro-gun control organization, stating in an email to GunsAmerica, “We have no affiliation with this group [of women].”
