C.A.T.I. Brings True Meaning Back To Festival

08 Oct 2014

On October 3rd-5th 2014 Gonzales, Texas hosted the COME AND TAKE IT FESTIVAL. A festival
dedicated to Texas history. You see, on October 2nd 1835 the first shot was fired of the
Texas revolution. The Mexican Army demanded that they surrender the 6lb cannon that was
given to them to protect the colony. 18 Texans stood their ground and was out numbered
just about 10 to 1. The Texans waived what we now know as the Gonzales Flag. A white
flag with the cannon the Mexican army wanted with the words 'COME AND TAKE IT" spelled
out on it. The Texans fired the first shot that would lead to Texas gaining its
Independence and freedom. What was special about the Festival this year was that it had
a Float in the Parade like no other. The crowd of about 10,000 cheered as a Very Special
Float made its way down the Parade route. This was the first time the festival had a
float like this. The float was the TRUE meaning of the event. It belonged to a Texas Gun
Rights Group called "COME AND TAKE IT TEXAS" and was decorated with banners and many
Texas revolution Flags, but that is not what made it special. What made it special was
the Texans that were walking and riding on it. They where heavily armed Texans openly
carrying the arms that many "gun grabbers" are itching to take. These Texans made an
emotional display for many as they realized the TRUE meaning of the COME AND TAKE IT
FESTIVAL. They payed respect to the ones that secured our Freedom and showed that we
are still in a battle to secure our freedom. While talking with many locals at the
festival they expressed how it is our DUTY and RESPONSIBILITY to take care of our self,
our family, and our community. They said we as citizens are the first responders and the
right of self defense is a natural born right protected by our Constitution. Wee should
never let anyone infringe on that. A big victory for Texas was made this year at the
festival as thousands really understood the meaning of the festival and the importance
of the right of self defense. This was the 2nd year the C.A.T.I. Texas group attended
the festival but a first to have a Float in the parade.
A little background on the Gun Rights Group "COME AND TAKE IT TEXAS".

to restore our rights that have been stripped away. They are well know for Open Carry
demonstrations and was the 1st group in Texas to push for the open carry of a pistol in
Texas, tryinng to just catch up to 45 other States.
