Dramatization Depicting the Dangers of Victim Disarmament Zones to be Performed In Austin, Texas

Freedom of Speech and Expression will be tested this Saturday when we use the concrete sidewalk as our stage, with the public and the media as our audience in an important dramatization. Will it be police in the public schools armed with semi-automatic rifles?  Will it be a mangled car on display for students to see the dangers of drinking and driving? Will it be the survivors of tragic personal injury at the hands of another?  No. This will be a serious, theatrical skit consisting of ketchup and cardboard props to capture the reality of the plot.

CATI Austin flagWe won't have high price directors nor a casting agent, just a volunteer group concerned activists bringing to light an important message. A skit of significance detailing a very specific cause, (Personal Protection), a Human Right that seems to have been slowly removed from the people and placed upon a shelf to be voted off or given back according to whomever is deserving of this essential benefit.  Wanting to capture the crucial dangers of gun-free zones we are acting out a play or series of plays in which one or two are armed against a group of unarmed victims, ending in a number of casualties that are a result of a law regulating self-defense or any similar rule that is abided by only the innocent.

Our goal is to instill the importance of everyone to be able to defend themselves in any way they choose. This way we can broadcast it to everyone, including our readers and the listeners of our show. We have had our share of negativity throughout the years and have still came out unscathed by any proposed deterrence of our ideas.  Mahatma Gandhi once said

"You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results".

Our upcoming performance is gaining ridicule and slander from people all across the land, the anti-gun crowd, and even people within our family tree of Freedom Fighters but we will proceed. Most of the finger-pointing bunch just left the theater watching a movie where the characters take up arms against their government like the Hunger Games and are eagerly awaiting the new Star Wars to hit the screen with a similar scenario.  The Chief of Police in Austin, Art Acevedo is against open carry of weapons in public and on campuses and even stated that he'd rather have young women go through rape counseling instead of having the right to carry a firearm for protection.

The State of Texas has installed their own gun control measures upon their citizens by limiting the use of handguns for defense to people who pay a concurring fee and get permission to exercise that right from the State. Texas has even used their version of the 2nd Amendment article 1 section 23 to go as far as creating more Gun-Free Zones by enacting 229.001 a law that gives cities the authority to regulate firearms in designated areas of their choice.

When the ranchers on the Red River were threatened by the Bureau of Land Management we were there, when fellow 2nd Amendment activists were incarcerated, we were there.  When San Antonio police Chief William McManus said No to open carry of rifles at the Alamo we were there.  When the city of Dallas said No, to feeding and clothing the homeless we stood our ground and are moving forward with our third annual event catered to the unfortunate in downtown. When innocent victims are being slaughtered in Victim Disarmament Zones we are here again on the front-lines of freedom and liberty to do what we do best.

"It has long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sit back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things" - Leonardo Da Vinci.   

Our current event will be conducted the same way and will not require tickets, ambulances, or police and will certainly not have a list of victims.  Words can only go so far in explaining ourselves, this way we'll get our message out ten-fold, and hopefully the shackles that prevent us from fully protecting our lives are lifted.

The First Midnight Open Carry March Around Texas Capitol

The First Open Carry Of Modern PistolsAustin, Texas  - With September 1st being the start of a number of bills to be enacted in the long list of Texas laws. Come and Take It Texas along with its sister group Dontcomply.com are taking it into their own hands, these 'Free' men and women will not wait for the new open carry law to go into effect on January 1st 2016, they will show the stupidity of the embarrassing gun laws in the state of Texas on midnight August 31st.

This new law that some say is a win, was not much of a change at all, simply allowing Texans to raise up their shirt a few inches to expose their personal defense tool, while still being extorted of part their personal income to pay the fee, giving their fingerprints, and waiting on permission from the Lone Star State.

You see here in Texas, were everything is supposed to be much bigger and that we are recognized by outsiders as an independent state, is really the opposite, we have shackles on just like most of the others. Here we can carry a fully loaded semi automatic rifles, shotguns, and or pre-1899 or replica black powder pistols in public without a license, but are not allowed to carry a modern handgun or even a little .22 pea shooter open or concealed in public at all. To outline the inconsistency of these draconian, and freedom suppressing laws, a rally of this nature is essential to further educate Texans and the world about all oppressions in good ol' Texas.

Back in January on the first day that the lawmakers convened in Austin Murdoch Pizgatti operated a 'Ghost Gun' Machine at the south gate of the Capitol and manufactured  a few AR-15 Lowers, while a Fort Hood Shooting survivor gave a heartfelt speech about how he was unarmed crouching down in the back of a room and the agony of feeling like a sitting duck while their was somebody shooting at them.

Murdoch Pizgatti and Jason Orsek were asked to leave the Capitol while other Concealed License Holders were whisked right in all for concealing their guns with their 'Glock Socks' which was totally within the law and with the licenses which they obtained, but believe me, they were like a couple of guys forced to eat something they absolutely hated when going through the torturous requirements. Come and Take it Texas and other gun rights groups for the past two years have walked, marched, gathered, passed out literature, and even talked with legislators about gun laws in Texas, but to no avail, lobbyists and fat pockets have prevailed in coercing these law makers to go against freedom. So come join us in our fight for Freedom and Human Rights and walk with us on Midnight August 31st, 2015, at 11:00pm at the south gate of the Capitol, bring a fake gun, long guns, black powder pistols, or you may chose to carry your real one and blend in with others and engage in civil disobedience and let's show them how stupid it really is to carry one and not the other. - View Event Page

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.
