The Open Carry move­ment has an im­port­ant ally ter­ri­fied.

The Na­tion­al Rifle As­so­ci­ation first chas­tised the Texas Open Carry group for show­ing “a lack of con­sid­er­a­tion and man­ners” when gath­er­ing in large demon­stra­tions. But the NRA then quickly walked back its crit­ic­al state­ments be­cause, as Jon Stew­art af­firms, “every­one’s scared of gun nuts—even oth­er gun nuts.” 

Plus: Vladi­mir Putin doesn’t care to ar­gue with wo­men, a video of Pres­id­ent Obama’s workout is leaked, and tele­vi­sion news out­lets ques­tion Bowe Ber­g­dahl’s loy­al­ties.
