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.
We 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.
