A week ago this notice was posted by concerned gun owners in the state of Texas:
We will be gathering for a legal armed open carry march to raise public awareness of gun laws in Texas. It is partially in response to the Temple Police Department violating the Second and Fourth Amendment rights of Active Duty MSGT Christopher J. Grisham HERE. Please join us all. We will be exercising our rights as free men and women. Be part of the solution. All permits and armed march route has been approved and coordinated with the city and local authorities.
Come out for music, great speakers, food and a march around the police station and town square.
When: June 1st
Where: Temple, TX
Venue: Community Market 212 S. Main St.
Time: 10:00am-4:00pm
“While out hiking with my son through backcountry roads to help him earn his Eagle Scout rank, I was illegally arrested and disarmed without cause. I was thrown in jail and my lawfully owned weapons were confiscated without receipt or notice,” -Grisham
That’s right! Get your guns and get to Temple, TX. They forgot we have rights and we must remind them. If we don’t stand up for fellow Texans today then we will stand alone when it happens to us in our hometown. Just a reminder on legal open carry in Texas: It must be a long gun and can be strapped or hung on your person. Holding it could be considered “calculated to alarm” and this will be a peaceful march. We will be taking up donations for the 2nd Amendment Legal Defense Fund for Christopher J. Grisham.
The march ended up being successful and peaceful, as a local news channel reported:

  1. First I heard and I am 150 miles from temple

  2. All those armed Conservative Terrorists and no one got shot? Damn, it will take forever for the Liberals to figure out how that happened...

    1. it will take forever for the Liberals to figure out how that happened...

      There will never, ever be a mention of this, since after all, it couldn't have happened.......:)

  3. I saw it about a week ago , V. was out there and made a speech . Nothing much really happened .

  4. Well, I like Temple TX and have wanted to return and visit the 4th Infantry Division Museum at Killeen. Texans are different. In 1998, I had my van backed into an Econo-Lodge space in front of my room. The boat was out in the parking lot at Livingston TX. Two large, young, good looking guys wheeled in next to me and started carrying cased long guns into the next room. They spoke cordially as they passed me. Men like that have always treated me with great respect in Texas. After about the eighth four-gun trip I said, "When it starts, you can count on me men." They laughed and said they sure would. Surround me and my family with armed Texans, please.

  5. Yep but Jackson the greatest tactician said NC troops "stuck to their ranks like they had tar on their heels."

    1. I hadn't heard that Jackson said that. Below is what I am familiar with.

      During one of that war's fiercest battles a column supporting North Carolina troops was driven from the field. After the battle, the North Carolinians who had successfully fought it out alone, happened to meet the regiment which had fled to safety and were greeted with the question, "Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?"

      "No, not a bit," shot back one of the North Carolina soldiers. "Old Jeff's bought it all up," he went on, referring to Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy.

      "Is that so? What's he going to do with it?"

      "He's going to put it on you'ns heels to make you stick better in the next fight."

      Upon hearing of the incident, Robert E. Lee smiled and said to a fellow officer, "God bless the Tar Heel boys."
