The crowd at Monday night’s rally in El Paso was highly supportive of President Trump’s remarks regarding his defense of the Second Amendment. He compared the attitude which would be displayed in the defense of the Second Amendment to the soldiers who defended the Alamo with a single cannon.
This from Breitbart:
During his Monday night rally in El Paso, Texas, President Donald Trump defended the Second Amendment by recounting the Battle of Gonzales and saying, “Come and Take It.”
He was winding toward the conclusion of his remarks when he began to speak of those things distinctly American, those things that bind together citizens across this country as well as the thousands who flooded into the building to hear Trump speak.
He said, “We believe in religious liberty, the right to free speech, and the right to keep and bear arms.”
After a few more comments and massive applause, Trump narrowed his comments to the love of freedom exemplified by the state of Texas in particular. He said, “This is the state where William Travis, James Bowie, and Davy Crockett made their last stand at the Alamo.”
Trump then added, “This is the state where a small band of patriots, at the Battle of Gonzales, armed with a single cannon, stared down a foreign, powerful army and declared, ‘Come and Take It.’”
He looked around during roaring applause and said again, “Come and Take It.”
On May 4, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Trump referenced the Battle of Gonzales during his speech to the NRA Annual Meeting.
In 1835 soldiers from General Santa Anna’s army marched into the little Texas town of Gonzales and ordered those Texans to surrender their small cannon that they relied on to protect their lives and protect their homes. The Texans refused! They were not about to give up their only means of self-defense.
In response, Santa Anna’s army returned with a large group of additional people. They had men all over the place … [but] this time they were met by dozens of Texans … who had rushed to Gonzales to defend their rights and their freedom. As Santa Anna’s men watched from a distance those brave Texans raised a flag for all to see. On the banner they painted a cannon along with four words that echoed through the ages. It said, “Come and Take It.”

The gun-grabbers will never stop their pursuit of taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens, and we must stand in their way. If they were to succeed in taking out the Second Amendment, the First Amendment would immediately come into focus as the next target to be destroyed. Without free speech and the right to bear arms, the country would become the Socialist States Of America, which is the end game of the globalists intent on taking down the USA. Thank God for a president who opposes them!
