Governor Greg Abbott of Texas is challenging Obama on gun control and saying that Texas will not comply with unconstitutional gun edicts. Obama is set to meet with Loretta Lynch today to shred the Constitution and use executive orders to implement more gun control. He will announce his actions to sidestep Congress tomorrow. This will probably take the form of enforced background checks for anyone buying a gun at a gun show. “Come and take it,” or “come and take them” is the response the Spartan soldiers gave to the Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. When the Spartans were down to about 300, versus Persia’s more than 100,000, the Persian’s demanded that the Spartans surrender and throw out their weapons. The Spartans replied, “Come and take them.” 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. All of America cringes as we await Obama’s newest diktat.
From BizPac Review:
After President Obama indicated his intention to issue more gun control executive actions, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a 25-century-old challenge to the president — come and take it.
The president indicated in his weekly address this week that he would be meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to work out executive actions on “reasonable” gun control executive actions due to the inaction of Congress on the subject.
“The gun lobby is loud and well-organized in its defense of effortlessly available guns for anyone,” Obama said in his address. “The rest of us are going to have to be just as passionate and well-organized in our defense of our kids.”
Abbott, a Republican and former Texas attorney general, fired back in this tweet:
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. 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. All of America should tell Obama to ‘come and take it.’ I don’t believe seceding from the Union is viable, but refusing unconstitutional mandates certainly is. Obama wants our Second Amendment rights stripped before he leaves office, but Americans will never give up their rights and guns so easily. He should remember the Alamo.
