Imagine working at Subway and turning around to see in front of you, a group of people brandishing weapons of all kinds, including what looks like a good old-fashioned rocket launcher.
This is exactly what happened in one North Carolina Subway, as anti-lockdown protesters came in for a quick snack.
A group of 11 anti-lockdown protesters had a snack at the sandwich shop, earning them the hastag #MealTeamSix on Twitter.
Travis Long, a photojournalist for the North Carolina-based paper “The News and Observer,” said he took the photos on his vacation day while following a gathering called “Blue Igloo,” which the Observer said set up the social occasion in downtown Raleigh to show support for the First and Second Amendments.
His photographs show the gathering — with and without masks— ordering at the sandwich establishment from a solitary worker behind the counter. One man had a weapon looking like an AT4 rocket launcher with “inert” stickers close to the top, with firearms on his abdomen. Another had a rifle that gave off an impression of being made out of wood.
Mia Farrow and other celebrities sounded off about the images:
Personally, I’d feel like I was in the middle of a halo or COD game, and would definitely want some pics of my own of these fantastic walking advertisements for our 1st and 2nd amendment rights!
