Following an arrest of two Texas open carry advocates earlier this week, a gun control group is using their mugshots in an ongoing campaign to influence a large grocery store chain change their gun policy.

The arrest came when the pair were booked along with a third man earlier this week in Arlington, Texas, on charges of interfering with a traffic stop stemming from a “cop watching” incident. The trio – Kory Watkins, his wife Janie Lucero, and Joseph Tye – claims they were not interfering and are calling the charges “bogus.”
