Texas to Biden on Gun Control: ‘Come and Take it’

Republicans in Texas have a message for Joe Biden in response to his demands that many weapons be banned.

“Come and take it.”

For those who are not familiar with Texas history, a report in the Center Square adds some detail:

“The phrase is known to Texans as the rallying cry that sparked the Texas Revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, in Gonzalez, Texas. The Mexican Army attempted to take a small cannon that was largely ineffective but used as a scare tactic to thwart Comanche raids and Texans weren’t giving it up without a fight. Their fight ultimately ended in an 18-minute battle in San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.”

The newest response from the Texas party is to Biden’s continuing vows to ban so-called “assault rifles.”

He recently said, on social media, “It’s time we ban assault weapons in this country.”

To which the party says, “Come and Take It.”

The Texas legislature just recently passed a permitless carry bill, and Gov. Greg Abbott promptly signed it.

The Texas GOP’s platform also suggests that the state legislature and Congress repeal and/or nullify the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968.

The report explained the party also passed unrestricted Constitutional Carry by amending the Texas Constitution; supports nullifying any gun laws that violate the Second Amendment or rights of due process; supports national reciprocity for gun ownership rights; supports recognizing the right of License to Carry holders to carry anywhere that off-duty or retired law enforcement can carry, among other measures.

WND reported only a day earlier that Biden repeatedly has claimed that AR-15 rifles need to be banned in America – part of his gun control agenda – because “the bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun.”

But it turns out that like his wild and false claim that certain weapons were banned from private ownership at the ratification of the Second Amendment, he’s wrong about this too.

A Field & Stream study on the “Five Fastest Rifle Cartridges,” in fact, listed five products.

They include the .220 Swift, a 40-grain round that moves at about 4,300 feet per second. For the AR bullet to be five times faster, it would have to travel four miles – in a second. At the rate of 240 miles in a minute. More than 14,000 miles an hour.
