Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)-  The open carry rally in Andrews, Texas, went off without a hitch on Saturday, 25 January.    The local newswest9.com headline was: Gun Rally in Andrews Had Message of Education, Peace

This occurred in spite of the arrest of a member of the organization, Michael Keoghan when he was scouting out a route for the rally.   In spite of the controversial arrest, Police Chief Bud Jones insisted that he supported the rights of everyone.  From newswest9.com:

One thing is for sure, both police and “Come And take It” organizers had a peaceful, respectful day in Andrews.

“Come And Take It” has over 40 chapters across the state with rallies going on just about every weekend.

The Come And Take It America website  states that their efforts are paying off:

We have been going town to town educating not only the public but the local police departments on laws that they haven’t had to enforce and have forgotten. But what seemed strange earlier this year has become commonplace amongst us Texans. Police departments everywhere are stepping up and respecting our second amendment.

James Franklyn, West Texas Regional Director for “Come And Take It,” said that they expect to work with police.  From newswest9.com:

“It’s in our mission statement that we work hand-in-hand with law enforcement,” 

Perhaps Chief Jones and the Andrews police department will reciprocate in the future.

    1. Dean, thank you sir for this write-up.One of the most effective tools we have to protect the rights of the two veterans that were arrested in Andrews is to publicize this story and utilize the opportunity for further educations. You’re helping Michael Keoughan and Joey Posey and I know that they appreciate it.

    2. Now, they need to drop the ridiculous charges against Michael Keoughan!

    3. Well….what was the guy charged with? You tell us he was arrested but not what for? Come on!
