US: Shotgun-wielding protesters rail at Syrian refugees outside Dallas Mosque

A group of heavily armed anti-Islam protesters gathered outside a Mosque in the Irving suburb of Dallas, Texas, on Saturday, to oppose the announcement that the US city is set to accept 200 Syrian refugees.
The protesters stood opposite the building, with one holding a placard inscribed with the slogan, "Say no to Syrian refugees."
The group of around a dozen protesters took full advantage of the state's lax "open carry" gun laws and were armed with shotguns, automatic rifles, and other firearms.
