Grammy-winning musician Steve Vaus, creator of the Buck Howdy character, has recorded a new song that defies those advocating gun confiscation to “come and take it.”HT: WND.
Invoking the spirit of the Texas battle for independence, the song declares, “Come and take it if you want it. Come and take it if you think you can. Come and take it, but we’ll warn you, you’ll have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.”
Vaus’ song proves particularly timely, as President Obama this week announced 23 new “executive actions” aimed at restricting gun use and availability in the U.S. and called for Congress to pass further gun-control legislation.
Several states are mulling ways to counter the president’s agenda, and many individuals fear the president is putting the U.S. on a path toward confiscating guns.
Vaus’ song, however, warns that gun ownership is a God-given right and violators of that right had best beware:
“We want the freedom that God gave us,” the lyrics declare, “so you best not cross that line. If you want this gun you gotta to come through us and take it, one shot at a time.”The slogan, “Come and take it,” became the battle cry and banner of the Texas Revolution after the 1835 Battle of Gonzalez, in which Texians defied the Mexican government’s demand to return a cannon that had been given them for self-defense. Rather than surrender the cannon to Mexican dragoons, Texians stormed the Mexican camp and drove the soldiers away.
As Vaus’ song sings, “You just don’t mess with Texas, especially when it comes to guns.”You can listen to the song Here or download it from ITunes.
