Oath Keepers Supports Open Carry March at the Alamo on October 19, 2013
Austin, TX -(Ammoland.com)- Oath Keepers will be participating in and sponsoring Open Carry Texas‘ march on The Alamo October 19th, 2013. Oath Keepers’ Texas Chapter President Jay Stang will speak along with Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers founder and president, and Mike Vanderboegh, founder of the Three Percenter Movement and author of the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog. Jerry Patterson, retired Marine Corps combat pilot and Texas Land Commissioner, will be the keynote speaker. We will peaceably assemble and exercise our right to bear arms at The Alamo, the birthplace of Texas freedom. We will follow in the footsteps of the Texas patriots at Gonzales, who famously dared Santa Ana to “Come and Take It”, and the patriots at The Alamo, who refused to lay down their arms and surrender. They gave their lives in defense of liberty and lit a fire that burns in the hearts of Texans to this day.
Their stand is as famous as the stand of Captain John Parker and the Minutemen at Lexington, who also refused to lay down their arms, and the Spartans at Thermopylae, whose king, Leonidas, who dared the Persians to “Come and Take It” (Molon Labe).
Current serving military personnel, veterans, current serving peace officers and retired Texas lawmen will be present at the march, honoring their oath and serving as an example to Chief McManus and the rest of the San Antonio Police Department that we are free men, and we will not be disarmed.
One of William Travis’ last letters implored all Americans and Texans to come to their aid. His words are preserved as cornerstones of Texas history and freedom:
Commandancy of The Alamo
Bejar, Feby. 24th. 1836
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World-
Fellow Citizens & compatriots-
I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna – I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man – The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken – I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls…
