How do you make a gun-rights rally more interesting? Well, one way to do it would be to manufacture a firearm during the demonstration — which is exactly what the pro-gun organization Come and Take it Texas plans to do at the Capitol building on Jan. 13, the start of the 2015 legislative session.
Members of the group will build the firearm with the help of Cody Wilson’s ‘Ghost Gunner,’ a CNC mill that gives one the ability to make a metal AR-15 lower receiver with ease.
Naturally, the thought of making a firearm at the steps of the state Capitol has some feeling uneasy, but one of the organizers of the event addressed the concern in a recent Facebook post:
For all those not sold on the idea of manufacturing firearms at the capital Just remember we had a thousand people tell us open carry was a bad idea also,yet it put gun rights back in the headlines and opened up more discussion than we have seen in years! Don’t buy into the gun controllers hysteria, the more we flex our rights the more they are seen to have no power over us. Government control is a delusion over divided weak men, when we unite we show they have no control and the illusion fades away. This is the front line! Some will stand shoulder to shoulder with us others will stand behind and hope to claim victory after we take the hits but we don’t waiver. As always if anyone has an issue they can Come And Take It. – Phoenix
In addition to building the gun, Come And Take It Texas will be there supporting a bill sponsored by Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) that would put the Lone Star State on the path to permit-less or Constitutional carry.
