President Trump at Dallas, Texas NRA Convention: Come and Take It
Trump defied the political adivsors who thought it might be unpopular to speak to the Dallas, Texas NRA convention. His response: “Bye bye, gotta get on the plane.” He said it was the “right thing to do.” Throughout his speech he promised to defend the the 2nd Amendment.
Unfortunately, the 2nd Amendment is truly under siege by leftists who are completely desirous of taking the means of self-defense away. They really don’t care if the gun is an AR platform or a semi-auto hand gun, they want them all. Will this President be able to stop the left from destroying the Constitution?
While stating that he would defend the Second Amendment as long as he is in office, he used one example of a story that brought the auditorium to its feet, and started chants of “USA, USA.”
The transcript of the end of his speech:
“This proud State would not exist if not for a handful of determined and defiant Texans who refused to surrender their rights nearly centuries ago. Alright, you know who I’m talking about.
In 1835, soldiers from General Santa Ana’s army marched into the little Texas town of Gonzalez, and ordered those settlers to surrender their small cannon, they relied on to protect their lives and protect their homes.
The Texans REFUSED! You refused. You’re tough.
They were not about to give up their only means of self-defense. In response, Santa Ana’s army returned with a large group of additional people. They had men all over the place, his army was big. This time they were met by dozens of Texans — settlers, soldiers, and ordinary citizens, who had rushed to Gonzalez to defend their rights and their freedoms.
As Santa Ana’s men watched from a distance, those brave Texans raised a flag for all to see.
And you know what it said.
On the banner, they painted a cannon along with four words that echoed through the ages. And you know what it is. It said ‘Come and Take It.’
‘Come and Take It.’
Like those early Texans, Americans will never surrender — ever, ever, ever.
We will never ever surrender. We will never give up our freedom.
Americans are born free.
We will live free.
And we will die free.
