COME AND TAKE IT! Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas Takes On Obama Over Gun Control

Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is throwing down the gauntlet against Obama on gun control. Obama is set to meet with Loretta Lynch tomorrow to do a two-step on the Constitution and use executive orders to implement more gun control. This will probably take the form of enforced background checks for anyone buying a gun at a gun show. But I wouldn’t be surprised at outright gun confiscation in certain areas if he thinks he can get away with it. The original Greek phrase was “Molon Labe.” That very phrase is tattooed on the forearm of Texas resident, Col. Allen B. West. It is very close to being time to dance over this issue. I guess we’ll fight in the shade. Increasing background checks only suppresses gun ownership by law abiding Americans, not criminals. Gun free zones are nothing more than shooting galleries for murderous psychopaths. At least Abbott and Texas are standing against Obama on this and there will be more to follow.


From Allen West/Michele Hickford:

Well folks, get ready for a modern-day showdown at the OK Corral. As we’ve been reporting here, our president is fixin’ to get guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens to make sure we are fully disarmed in the face of criminals and terrorists – – or so it seems.

On New Year’s Day during his weekly address, President Obama said he is looking for ways to control guns without having to go through that pesky Congress. He’s set to meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch tomorrow to discuss what executive actions he can take to push his agenda through.

Well, thank God for Texas.

In response to President Obama’s comment, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted those famous words uttered by Spartan King Leonidas when the Persian army demanded the Greeks lay down their weapons.

Obama will also seek to take gun rights away from those on his notorious “no-fly list.” A list that is more than 50% wrong and which can be used as a de facto enemies list. On Jan. 1, a new law came into effect allowing licensed citizens of the Lone Star State to openly carry holstered pistols. It was cause for celebration in Texas. Abbott is also encouraging Texans to buy more guns and ammo. Now is not the time to put your weapons down as Kurt Russell recently said. The phrase “come and take it” was emblazoned on a flag flown by Texian forces during the Texas Revolution, chiefly at the battle of Gonzales, where Texian rebels revolted against the Mexican army and challenged them to retrieve a cannon loaned by them for protection. The phrase also goes back to the Spartans in Greece and is more than appropriate here. All of America should tell Obama to ‘come and take it.’
