‘Come And Take It Texas’ To Join Parade Today With Men Carrying Long Guns And Riding On A Float
An Open Carry group in Texas plans an armed walk in a parade today and they’ve also booked a float. What fun! I wouldn’t take the kids out to this parade, though. The group states that the long guns will be unloaded but only because, “The parade people are making it that way” but you can “just carry a mag in pocket if you are worried.”
The protesters will be joined by lots of flags, which means they are real ‘patriots’ while they ruin a parade for families with children.

[su_center_ad]Everyone loves a parade. The group’s Facebook page reads:
Celebrate “Come & Take It!” with us! Be part of history by walking armed with us in the parade. C.A.T.I. will have a float this year and we are encouraging everyone interested in gun rights to participate. Bring your long arm on a proper sling, unloaded and walk with us showing solidarity in the gun rights movement sweeping the state.
The dates for the Come & Take It Festival are Oct. 3, 4 & 5, 2014. The parade we will participate in is Oct. 4th. Be there by 9:00 and the parade starts at 10:30.
The Come & Take It Festival celebrates the firing of the first shot of the Texas revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, which took place near Gonzales. Come & help us celebrate history with the firing of the first shot!

Joseph Walker writes in the comments, “Empty guns ? What about black powder pistols ? When did the new rules come out ? How is carrying a empty long gun fighting for our rights to carry a pistol constitutionally ?”
Why can’t they have snipers on the floats? What a crappy revolution.
Weapons will be loaded after the parade so don’t worry.
Scheduled to attend are David Amad of Open Carry Texas in Houston, Lamar Russell of Open Carry Texas in San Antonio (he’s also an Admin at OCT).
Misty Witt of Open Carry Texas of Houston and she’s a “Gun Goddess” (see image below):
Most of the “Goddesses” attending a recent rally turned out to be men, but whatevs.
These three “Goddesses” where there, though.
The motivation for the rally seems clear: piss of Moms Demand Action.
I’m pretty sure the Moms group is smiling right now. You see, these Open Carry groups are their own worst enemies. We just have to sit back and watch their examples of extreme behavior while carrying firearms and gun sense laws will follow their lead. If gun activists are allowed to ride on floats with their long guns strapped to their backs, then the gun laws in that state are already lax.
Big thanks to my tipster whose anonymity shall be respected here.
