Two open carry gun advocates were arrested in Austin outside a Veterans Day event Monday.

Open Carry Texas President C.J. Grisham was arrested for trespassing following an open carry protest at the Capitol. Jacob Cordova was arrested as well.

According to KTBC-TV, Grisham and other advocates were on the north side of the state’s Capitol building, while a veterans ceremony took place on the south side. The group has long been advocating for the right to openly carry handguns.

“I think the point should be made. What better day than today for us veterans to stick up for the rights we took an oath of office to protect,” A. J. Postell told KTBC.

Others disagreed.
