Come And Take It Texas, Central Texas Militia Team Up To Host Public Open Carry Training

TEMPLE, TX - In anticipation of a new law to be passed and enacted in 2015 expanding gun rights in Texas to include the open carry of modern handguns, gun rights activist organization Come and Take It Texas (CATI) has joined forces with Belton/Temple based Central Texas Militia (CTM) to provide a series of open carry courses for Texans who wish to enjoy their new-found liberty in a safe and effective manner.  CATI will host the training while CTM will provide range safety officers and assistant instructors for the events.

Veteran Texas peace officer JR Ryan heads up the training as the primary instructor, giving average citizens a chance to learn how to open carry like a pro, and will focus his training primarily on weapon awareness, retention, how to interact with law enforcement, and self-defense in close quarters confrontations. "Someone who has never open carried a weapon has not had the 'real' threat of their weapon being easily accessible to others before," said Ryan. "It is imperative that anyone open carrying a weapon have training in weapon retention. This way, they have an idea what to do in that situation, and do not have to 'learn on the fly' if it were to happen to them."

The training is meant to head off criticism from both sides of the gun rights debate, that average citizens are not properly suited to openly carry firearms, including the often repeated strawman argument that open carry could make people automatic targets for criminals. To Ryan, this represents a crucial teachable moment for gun rights activists. "The critical message that I want to get out there with this training is that when someone attempts to take your weapon it becomes a fight for your life." For this reason, martial disciplines including arm traps and throws, are a central focus of the training.

However, open carriers are cautioned not to think of their guns as some sort of talisman that grants complete safety by virtue of its being worn, and are reminded that assuming the responsibility of wearing arms demands careful consideration of the risks involved, and an increased level of proficiency and heightened situational awareness.

Part of the training intended to drive this message home involves a 21-foot "sprint" scenario, in which an attacker with a simulated knife closes on the trainee who must attempt to draw before he is overtaken. It is expected that most people, especially using holsters with additional levels of retention, will not be able to effectively employ the weapon while being charged from that distance, and therefore must practice increased vigilance as well as alternative defense and evasion techniques.

Trainees will also be taught that the pistol is not necessarily their only defensive option. As assistant instructor B. McLoughlin of Central Texas Militia explains, "Some situations might not require that level of violence or the gun could have a failure caused from the confrontation or accessing. Then you would resort to other means of defense. Hands, impact objects, knives." McLoughlin is a military veteran who studies and teaches close-quarters combatives, as well as advanced stress shooting techniques.

Some form of open carry legislation, whether licensed or constitutional carry, is expected to pass the Texas legislature this year, and Governor Abbott has promised to sign it. Despite concerns raised from conceealed carry supporters, including recent comments from former Governor Rick Perry questioning the safety and effectiveness of allowing ordinary citizens to open carry, CATI and CTM remain confident that once seeing people openly armed becomes the norm, crime will fall and police relations with the community will become less tense. As McLoughlin explains, "the thought of a firearm being a taboo weapon will change to it now being a tool. Something that you bring. Just like jumper cables or a wallet."

"I see the legislation getting passed," says Ryan, "and I for one support it wholeheartedly. I think it ought to be constitutional carry, but I have a sinking feeling that it will get passed as licensed open carry.... a privilege, not a right. That being said, once it is the norm, I do not see it being a hindrance to law enforcement, and being a positive thing as concealed carry has been."

The training is set to begin in late March, and will be open to anyone who wishes to participate. Those interested in participating are encouraged to contact CATI or CTM for more information. The forthcoming training events will be announced on both organizations' public Facebook pages at www.facebook.com/catitx and www.facebook.com/groups/CentralTexasMilitia later this month.

Terry Holcomb Sr:
"Fixing to challenge the county judge on his unconstitutional silencing of the people's first amendment right to petition the government for redress of grievances.
Tyranny at its finest. It is time to stand up!
Watch  http://youtu.be/_Nunu6ISeBM "




Terry Holcomb is accused of disrupting the meeting because he was not allowed to make public comments as the regular portion of the meeting was adjourned for an executive session.
“We’re not gonna allow public comments today?” Holcomb said to the four county commissioners and County Judge Fritz Faulkner.
“It’s not on the agenda,” Faulkner replied.
“That’s unacceptable,” Holcomb said.
Faulkner then told Holcomb he could “go outside and discuss it,” but the meeting was moving forward with an executive session.
Saying again that the situation was “unacceptable,” Holcomb accused the court of taking the rights of the people.
When Holcomb made no effort to leave the courtroom, Faulkner said to him, “You’re dangerously close to disrupting a public meeting.”
Holcomb told the judge that he was denying the people their right to have their voice heard.
Faulkner responded by saying, “You can go out there and talk to the people. We’re fixing to have executive session.”
Still seated in his chair, Holcomb said, “You didn’t want to hear from the citizens and you’re gonna hear from them. You are gonna hear from me. You are not going to silence us by your abuse.”
At that point, Faulkner called for Pct. 2 Constable Roy Pippin Jr. to remove Holcomb from the meeting chamber.
“You have been requested to remove from the court,” Pippin told Holcomb.
“I am not leaving. I am not leaving,” he replied.
Directing his comments to commissioners, Holcomb then said, “And y’all commissioners that are allowing this, you are all cowards. All of you.”
Pippin implored Holcomb to leave the room but Holcomb remained in his chair and demanded to know what law he had broken.
“No law is broken. You were given an order to remove from court,” said Pippin, adding moments later, “By not following my order, you are resisting arrest. Do you want to go to jail for resisting arrest?”
Faulkner told Holcomb that commissioners court meetings are not a political stomping ground.
“That’s all you want to do,” he said.
Outside of the courtroom, Holcomb was confronted by Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Sowell who asked to have a “private word” with him.
Holcomb asked if he was being detained and Sowell replied, “You’re about to be,” prompting Holcomb to ask if he had committed a crime.
“I didn’t say you committed a crime,” said Sowell.
Sowell placed Holcomb in handcuffs and escorted him away from the premises.

Matthew Short:

"I just talked to Corpl Morgan at the jail where Terry Holcomb Sr. is being held. Morgan has been instructed by his superiors not to tell callers, or the press why Terry is being held. I was told that He would be arraigned "some time tomorrow". i was told " direct phone calls, and questions to the district attorney". I have a very large problem with some one being held, and a member of the press not being allowed to know why they are there. i very plainly asked the deputy if he was instructed to answer the way he did or if he di not understand the question. he stated" I was instructed not to say why he is here sir.'' When asked if he would be arraigned tomorrow Mr Morgan informed me he would be in the presence of one of 4 JP some time tomorrow.... Mr Morgan also informed me that the office would be open around 8 am for further information. I believe that we should continue to call until we get some real answers where my buddy Terry is...."

James Franklin:
"Thank God for real men like Terry Holcomb Sr."

PROOF – BLM Stealing Texas Land

According to a recent Bureau of Land Management statement, the Federal Government is not expanding it's holdings on the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma.

However if that were true, why would prominent and established politicians such as Gov. Rick Perry, Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, risk their careers and reputations by speaking out against an eminent BLM land grab in Texas?

A BLM spokesperson also assured me during a recent interview that the BLM is not interested in the "surface management" of what they refer to as the "Red River Management Area" (RRMA) but just like their claim of Red River Management Area Map Astewardship over 116 miles (or more than 90,000 acres) of Texas land, this is utter falsehood.

The fact is, the Bureau of Land Management is expanding  their holdings along the border between Texas and Oklahoma and I can prove it.

 

Concerning the issue of Surface Management:

On the Bureau of Land Management's website there is a recent document that mentions the RRMA, only once, under the sub-heading: BLM Oklahoma Field Office Mission – Surface Management. How about that? The very first area mentioned in the portion of the document dealing with surface-management is none other than RRMA!

Oddly enough, in my second interview with the same Oklahoma BLM spokesperson, I was told some of the specific ways in which the BLM intends to manage the surface of the RRMA.

For all of you that enjoy your weekends along the Red River, near the HWY 79 bridge between Beyers, TX and Waurika, OK, enjoy it while you can. The BLM was there just recently with Texas DOT officials and in their estimation your recreation is damaging the bridge supports in addition to ruining the environment.
 

 Over the past few weeks there's been a lot of talk concerning exactly how the Red River has changed its course over the years and thereby altered the land around it. Presumably, this disputed fact has some bearing on who owns and/or manages the land on either side of the river.

There is a legal tradition for this, know as Riparian Law, which dates back to Roman times. However, according to the Bureau of Land Management, this common law standard has no bearing on their position. In fact the BLM operates under the US Dept of Interior's Riparian Policy. In interest of full disclosure the DOI itself lists this policy as an opinion, as it's web address makes clear: http://www.doi.gov/solicitor/opinions/M-37028.pdf .

Now here's where things get really strange.

The BLM states that according to a survey done in 1923, the southern boundary of federally held lands was marked along the median line of the Red River. Everything south of the midpoint of the river was Texas. This survey line was marked with wooden stakes which, obviously, are no longer present. There seems to be no argument that the river has moved northward but the BLM states that regardless of this fact, their 'border' remains in that fixed spot on the planet. I pressed the BLM spokesperson on how they can sure of where their 'border' lies given the fact that the stakes are gone and that the survey team in 1923 had no GPS technology. The BLM could not answer this question.

At the time that the survey was done however it was understood that the river shifted and yet no mention was made that the 'border' would remain fixed. In fact the only datum by which the 'border' can be delineated (according to the survey) is the course of the river itself.

It certainly seems like the BLM is making up the rules as it goes along doesn't it?

Yet the most damning evidence against the BLM's unlawful land-grab comes once again from their very own documents. Much of the information that I used for this article can now be easily found on the internet; but when I first started investigating this issue any mention of the Red River of the South by the BLM was completely absent on every search engine. Humorously enough it was only after speaking with the BLM the first time that I was able to find these documents that so clearly dispute their claims.poster

This link will take you to the BLM's Oklahoma Resource Management Plan (RMP). If you follow that link and scroll down to document page 101 or .pdf page 107, you will find the section labeled THE RMP FOR ISSUE 4. RED RIVER MANAGEMENT.

The first sentence states: "A unique situation exists in relation to the issue of the Red River area management. The area itself cannot be defined until action by the U.S. Congress establishes the permanent state boundary between Oklahoma and Texas."

Another undeniable fact in this case is that in the year 2000, U.S. Congress did in fact make a decision regarding the state boundaries between Texas and Oklahoma, a fact that is not disputed by any of the interested parties. The northern boundary of Texas is the vegetative line of the south bank of the Red River.

referenced here by the State of Oklahoma and here by the State of Texas

The Oklahoma RMP goes on to lay out three scenarios for management based on speculation on how the U.S. Congress was expected to rule at the time that the plan was accepted.

  • In plan 4a, the BLM would gain no additional land and be left with it's contemporary holdings of 958 acres.
  • Plan 4b would provide for an additional 1,400 acres but states that the BLM could end up acquiring  upwards of 46,000 acres should they manipulate the courts successfully.
  • The scenario imagined in Plan 4c, in stark contrast to what Congress actually decided, envisions the BLM being granted 90,000 acres of land that was then and is still owned by Texas farmers and ranchers.

This 1994 OK RMP is still the plan under which the Bureau of Land Management operates. While this plan is currently under revision in regards to future management of currently held land, it makes clear that the Red River Boundary Compact decision of the U.S. Congress did not grant any additional acreage to the federal government. As it stands, the BLM's Red River Management Area consists of 958 non-contiguous acres, all of which lay beyond that vegetative line on the south bank of the Red River.10172630_10200910729210864_3202847317246571132_n

It is for this reason that Texans will be coming from across the state to rally, celebrate and make claim to our sovereign land. Our
gathering will be a peaceful one, so long as our public servants are mindful of their place.

GOD BLESS TEXAS!!!

CATI-Austin to Feed and Clothe the Homeless

CATI Austin, a community oriented, civil rights group focused on personal protection and self-defense will hold an event on May 31st to benefit the less fortunate in their local community.   aj redo pic

The Austin chapter of Come and Take It Texas is one of the nearly forty chapters across the state that is involved in organizing events designed to uplift the community.

Last year CATI Dallas partnered with DontComply.com in a similar event to feed the homeless.

The group provided over 300 fresh, hand prepared meals using both local produce and locally harvested game.

This month, C.A.T.I. Austin seeks to mirror that event and improve upon it by also distributing donated clothing and hygiene products.

Members of Come and Take It Texas say that they find it “incredibly fulfilling” to address these urgent needs that have become so common in today’s financial climate.

They’re also “especially proud” to be serving the many US military veterans that find themselves without any community support after they leave the service.

CATI Austin member Tom Jefferson stated: “We understand this is just one meal and a few items of clothes right now, but we hope to show the many in need that we have not forgotten about them.”

Come and Take It Texas is an entirely self-funded grassroots organization.

Their philosophy is inspired by civil rights heroes such as Rosa Parks who demonstrated the world changing power that one individual can wield when focused on societal evolution. They are quick to point out however that real change only occurs when others join in the effort.

Come and Take It Texas hopes that their projects inspire others to seek out a local chapter and help preserve the Texas traditions of responsibility and independence that are so crucial in maintaining a self-sustaining community.

Texans Rise Up Against the BLM – Draw a Line In The Sand!!!

On May 24, 2014 DontComply.com and  Come And Take It Texas will gather with fellow Texans at the Red River to stand up to the petty tyrants in the Bureau of Land Management.

Currently the BLM is revising it's Resource Management Plan for Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas which is clearly intended to further restrict land rights across these states and ensure that the Native American tribes that own mineral rights in these areas 'pay their fair share' to Uncle Sam.

Red riverAlthough Oklahoma BLM has issued a statement claiming that the BLM is not expanding it's holdings at the Red River, informed citizens remain skeptical.

Today a spokesperson for the BLM told DontComply.com that the BLM has no interest in 'surface management' at the Red River Management Area; however the BLM's Oklahoma Field Office Newsletter clearly recognizes the area as a focus and another recent BLM document mentions the Red River only once, under the heading ‘Oklahoma Field Office Mission – Surface Management‘

It seems that ultimately the US Federal Government intends to restrict Texas farmers and ranchers from accessing the Red River at any point along it's course, effectively placing unwarranted sanctions upon Texas agriculture.

While BLM has not yet stationed it's armed goons at the border, next month Texans will gather to send a clear message of what to expect if it tries.

Demonstrators intend to camp at the site over the weekend, an open-carry walk will be held in nearby Wichita Falls and the border between Texas and Oklahoma will be clearly demarcated with historic flags from both the Texas War for Independence as well as the American War for Independence.

All Liberty-loving Americans are invited to join us on MAY 24th as we stand against tyranny!

War on Guns: Report from the Front Lines

Update: Andrews, TX Open Carry

Come and Take It Texas members in Andrews County, Texas are continuing to gain community support even within the Andrews Police Department which has been so hostile towards gun-rights activists.

On Saturday 4/12/14 demonstrators held a three-hour open carry walk including a break for lunch at Cassidy's Sub Shop, a local eatery owned by 2nd Amendment supporters.

On Saturday CATI also saw their first local detractor in Andrews.  A local man repeatedly drove past the group [which included women and children] cursing and making offensive hand gestures at them. Andrews Police officers spoke with the man and discouraged him from using obscenities should he decide to express himself further. The officer later stated that the offender is known to them as a difficult individual so it's no surprise that, like most of the anti-gun crowd, he maintained a classy and mature demeanor while expressing his opinions. (sarcasm intended)

Liberation of Andrews

Though CATI Andrews County has earned the respect of local law enforcement, many remain confounded by what seems to be an absence of logic within the Andrews District Attorney's office as the case against CATI member and former Army Sergeant Michael Keoughan moves forward.

Michael is now urgently seeking donations to help him raise $10,000 for legal representation in a case of clear-cut financial intimidation and abuse of office intended to discourage activists from demonstrating in Andrews, TX.

The small town has a history of intimidating and unlawfully arresting gun-rights activists. Andrews residents first approached Come and Take It Texas concerning this problem in November of 2013 and currently CATI is seeking the resolution of two separate cases involving the unlawful arrest of a military veteran and the prolonged confiscation of lawfully owned firearms.

There is ample evidence that Michael Keoughan violated no laws and the dash-cam footage from the arrest makes it clear that the arresting officers were aware of this. Law enforcement was also previously aware of Michael's identity and the reason he was in Andrews that day. CATI Midland/Odessa looks forward to making more footage and recordings available as soon as Michael's trial is over. 

The DA's office has had plenty of time to research the facts in the case and make comparisons to preceding incidents around the state; assuming that they have done this, one wonders what motivates the city to waste taxpayer funds in order to soothe the wounded ego of their Chief of Police shortly before he vacates his office.

Although the town 12,000 still requires CATI to file permits for their educational walks, the situation in Andrews, TX is radically improving. Come and Take It Texas regards the situation as a textbook example of how their reasoned methods and educated activists can powerfully restructure a governmental body that has neglected the Constitution and overstepped it's lawful authority.

Californians Join The Resistance!

Similar to Connecticut, both San Francisco and Sunnyvale, California have ordered citizens to surrender their standard capacity AR magazines. Fortunately there remains a few Constitutional insurgents on the Left Coast.

As reported on Reason.com yesterday:

Does the Second Amendment protect the right of gun owners to possess magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition? A group of California gun owners says it does, and today they asked Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to block the implementation of one such ban as they mount a Second Amendment challenge to it in federal court.

Last week the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division, refused to grant a preliminary injunction that would have stopped the city from enforcing the ban while the litigation moved forward, arguing that the ban represents “only the most minor burden on the Second Amendment.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit likewise refused to block the law from going into effect.

The plaintiffs now seek redress at the hands of Justice Kennedy, whose duties include fielding such motions originating from the 9th Circuit. “Granting the injunction will simply preserve Applicants’ rights while the case is decided on the merits,” the plaintiffs’ motion states. By contrast, the lower courts have endorsed a “Hobson’s choice,” requiring otherwise law-abiding gun owners to either hand over their property “or continue exercising their constitutional right to possess the items in violation of the law, subjecting themselves to criminal penalties.”

The Oakland Tribune stated that, as of last Saturday, not one magazine has been turned in. Come and Take It Texas will continue to monitor the situation in California. For the sake of Liberty let's hope this is the start of something big.

Texas Veterans Illegally Arrested, Guns Confiscated

 

On the evening of November 30, 2013 Joey Posey, a veteran of the Army's 101st Airborne was arrested and jailed by police in Andrews, TX. He had taken a walk with his children to get ice cream and french fries and decided to openly carry his AR-15 in addition to his legally concealed handgun. Although the open carry of a longarm is legal in Texas, it was for this reason that he and his children found themselves forced to the ground as soon as the police arrived on the scene. For two months now SPC Posey has been in legal limbo. There have been no charges filed yet, his weapons have not been returned and his concealed-carry license has been suspended. What Joey didn't know when he left his house that night was that he was not the first person whose firearms rights have been suppressed in Andrews.

To show support for Joey Come and Take It Midland/Odessa organized an open carry walk in Andrews in the weeks after Joey's arrest. As the walk was coming to an end, Andrews police approached the group of demonstrators telling them that if they did not disperse they would be in violation of a municipal code that pertains to motor vehicle operation.

corner

Following that incident, three members of Come and Take It Texas met with Andrews, TX Police Chief Bud Jones to ensure that the rights of Texans would no longer be suppressed by his department and to get permits signed for their upcoming demonstrations in Andrews. In that meeting the Chief assured them that and understanding had been reached. He gave his word that he would do everything in his power to protect the legal rights of gun owners in the future.

At one time, when a Texan made a promise and shook your hand, you could rest assured that he would keep his word. Unfortunately, Chief Bud Jones failed to keep his word, and he failed to honor the oath that he swore to the Constitution.

On January 22nd, 2014 former Army Sergeant Michael Keoughan, one of the CATI members that met with Chief Jones, went to Andrews to survey the approved route for their next open carry walk. Given the multiple reports that Andrews PD had used intimidation to 'convince' people not to open carry in Andrews, Michael also wanted to film himself open carrying that day and prove to the members of the the new CATI chapter in Andrews that they no longer needed to fear their police department. Sadly, Michael was illegally arrested that day, and his weapons were unlawfully confiscated. CATI recorded their meeting with the Chief, and have posted some of that interview on their YouTube channel but the local media refuses to address this part of the story. It seems the 'good ol' boy' system is still alive and well in West Texas.

As if this story wasn't bad enough;

When a local news station posted a story on their Facebook page about Keoughan's arrest and the upcoming CATI demonstration to be held in Andrews, a resident of that town made threats against the group in the comments section of the post.

threat 1 threat 2

Two of CATI's members were so concerned by the threats that they contacted Andrews PD to file a report in case the man did make good on his threats. One of the members, an over-the-road trucker, was told that a report would not be taken. The officer went on to inform the caller that the town was full of "rednecks" that would likely shoot members of CATI and that the victims could expect that the person would never be found or brought to justice. After that the officer hung up and did not answer again.

A Sheriff's Deputy was recorded as he made a similar comment to CATI members while they were waiting for Keoughan to be released from Andrews County Jail. 
 

Another CATI member was told that a report could not be made over the phone but, if she would make the seventy mile drive to Andrews, that a report could be made in person. She immediately drove to Andrews only to find that the entire police department was too busy "in a meeting" to speak with her. A Texas Ranger stationed in Andrews made it clear that no one was going to take a report, calling the posts a "perceived threat".

Local media has ignored these two cases of dereliction of duty, just as they have refused to report the facts showing that both of these veterans have been victims of Official Oppression

In the last week of May 2014 the City of Andrews Police Department officially ceased it's attempt to charge Joey Posey with a crime having found no wrongdoing and Joey's lawfully owned weapons were finally returned to him. However Michael Keoughan is still facing charges and will appear in court on Sept. 03, 2014 with his lawyer at the expense of $10,000. Please contact Police Chief Bud Jones concerning this financial oppression and help us achieve a victory for human rights in west Texas.
