Rally turns the Alamo into the safest place in America
October 20, 2013
Despite the mainstream media’s attempts to condition the public into thinking that guns commit crimes on their own, absolutely no injuries were reported at an open carry gun rally at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday.
The rally, named “Come and Take It San Antonio,” temporarily turned the Alamo Plaza into the safest place in America.
“We have come a long way in showing the public and police that gun owners are responsible,” the event’s public announcement read. “We refuse to go backwards in this cause.”
“We are drawing a line in the sand on the historic land of the Alamo.”
Carrying everything from lever-action Marlins to Mini-14s, over 1,000 well-armed Texans arrived at the rally, fulfilling the plea for reinforcements made by Alamo Commander William B. Travis “in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character.”
Although Saturday’s response came 177 years too late to save Lt. Col. Travis and the Alamo defenders, it was not too late to defend the very axioms of liberty that they died for as tyranny continues its cancerous spread.
“I’ll tell you, I’m not different from my ancestors, and you’re no different from your ancestors,” syndicated radio host Alex Jones told the reinforcements. “My ancestors on both sides of my family started the Texas revolution, and I’m here to tell you that that revolution was a continuation of human beings fighting against bullies and tyrants in every civilization throughout history, and this is the struggle of the individual.”
Only mere blocks from the Alamo rally, gun control activists attacked individual rights at the largely ignored Moms Demand Action “rally,” whose organizers had views no different than the 1836 Mexican authorities determined to disarm Texans.
“I think its unnecessary and irresponsible to have open carry at the No. 1 tourist attraction in Texas,” Sandy Phillips, one of the few attendees said to mySA. “And to try to intimidate and bully by carrying a gun, you have the right, but why exercise it?”
“Nobody is trying to take their guns away.”
Yet according to the bookmark-sized flyer handed out at the event, the gun control group wants to “ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds,” a demand that runs completely contrary to her statement.
Back at the Alamo, Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, who is currently running for Lieutenant Governor, affirmed that the open carry rally answered the call for liberty made by Travis in his letter dated Feb. 24, 1836.
“There’s a standard that should apply to all gatherings held at this sacred cradle of Texas Liberty: Whether our activity or our purpose would be supported by those men who gave us all,” he said.
