On June 1st, the Oath Keepers Texas Chapter, along with www.dontcomply.com , The Sons of Liberty Riders and several other groups will sponsor, support, and take part in the Come and Take it Temple open carry march in Temple, Texas. Go here for details. Why are we marching? To show our support and solidarity with active duty soldier Master Sergeant CJ Grisham. MSgt Grisham, an outspoken advocate of truth and the Constitution, was arrested on March 16, 2013 by the Temple, Texas PD for “rudely displaying a firearm” while walking down a dirt road with his son on a Boy Scout hike. You can read about the incident here. And here is the video of the arrest: here
Why did he have a firearm? Because he has the right to, first of all. Second, he was walking through an area full of hogs and other wild animals. We got hogs in Texas like you wouldn’t believe. We aren’t talking Charlotte’s Web here. Our hogs require firearms to stop them if a herd decides to stampede your way.
We want to show the city of Temple and Bell County Attorney Jim Nichols that the US Army is not the enemy. We also want to support MSgt Grisham by doing exactly what he did to get arrested. This is civil disobedience done correctly, friends (while open carry is perfectly legal in Texas, that didn’t stop the Temple police from arresting MSgt Grisham).
We are also raising money for MSgt Grisham’s legal defense. Oath Keepers has set up a donation page on our site where you can chip in to help with his legal expenses (when you donate there, it goes directly to his legal defense fund. We won’t be handling any of the money). Fighting these unconstitutional and oath breaking acts is expensive. It takes a lot of time and money to be successful, and we need to win, so please donate generously to his defense fund.
As we investigate further, we have uncovered a rash of activity on the part of the Temple PD targeting active duty soldiers. We know outside of any military base, there will be tension. Thousands of soldiers and police officers don’t always get along on Saturday night. There is, however, no excuse for this behavior on the part of the Temple PD. As the state chapter president, I will be present with Beast Machine (my FAL). You bring your AR, FN-FAL, AK-47, Mossberg 930 or whatever makes you happy.
My comments during my speech will be directed to the County Attorney and to the subject of gun rights…
