Come and Take It -- Austin marches downtown
Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me.
This afternoon, we attended an open carry event with the local Austin group. The event began at the Texas State Capitol, then continued down Congress Ave to Sixth Street. And yes, there was an open carry group walking up and down Sixth street in Austin just a couple hours ago! Reactions were 99% positive, although we did observe on person giving the group a middle finger from a car. We can't really explain it, but the hand of God is on this open-carry movement in Texas!!!

And, of course, we had the election forecasting of Sam Fyrestarter!!! :)
