A GROUP protesting for their right to openly carry guns in public accidentally sent restaurant workers fleeing in terror because they forgot to bring any signs saying what they were doing.

Workers in the Ft. Worth restaurant saw a group of heavily armed white men approaching the restaurant and hid themselves in the freezer, expecting to be robbed.

"They locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them," Ft. Worth's Sgt. Ray Bush told Raw Story via email.

"The demonstration had no signage that would have alerted anyone to their real purpose, and to our knowledge they did not attempt to contact anyone in the Fort Worth Police Department to advise us prior to the demonstration."

According to NBC's Channel 5, the protestors became irate when police 'treated them like criminals' for protesting with rifles and other firearms without banners or signage indicating what they were protesting.

"We're not breaking the laws," said one of the demonstrators, Edwin Haros.

"We're not here to hurt anybody. We're not trying to alarm anybody. We're doing this because it's our constitutional right."
