Today and Yesterday, patriots gathered across the state of Texas to exercise their right to open carry long guns.
Following the illegal and unconstitutional arrest of Murdoch Pizgatti (Zach Horton) in McAllen, Texas this last Wednesday, everyone decided to show the Police Department how we feel. It was decided that we would not take this abuse. The amazing thing with this event is that so many people showed up in support of open carry and our rights, even with just a few days notice. A few people traveled from the Dallas Metroplex, Houston and from other cities all over the state.
It seems that a crowd of 78-100 citizens gathered at the peak of the event Saturday. Sunday had a large turnout as well. It was very exciting to have everyone gathered. I will point out as well that this is the same parking lot that Murdoch was arrested in, for having his weapon IN HIS TRUNK.
Below is a gallery of a few images from this event:
For a bit more backstory or information:
EVERYONE did a great job with this event. It was great to see everyone out in McAllen and locally in Denton. This is what we have to keep doing. Stand up for your rights. Stay within the law. You get jailed illegally? Do not put up for it. Always travel with a buddy or tell someone where you are exercising your rights until we can make this an every day occurrence. If you get detained illegally, we all have your back.
