UPDATE: A Washington, D.C., conservative radio station has refused to sell airtime for a political statement from the writer-actor-singer who performed for years as television’s Buck Howdy – deeming it too “controversial.”“How sad that we live in a time when a message supporting the Constitution is deemed too controversial,” Grammy-winning musician Steve Vaus, creator of the Buck Howdy character, told WND today.

Law abiding citizens do not possess assault weapons, they own defense weapons. And just so we are clear to the gun grabbers. The phrase “You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hands” is not simply a saying, it is a constitutional right and way of life. For those who are not apprised of the phrase “Molon Labe” it means “Come and take”. Spoken by King Leonidas in response to the Persian King Xerxes (Persia is now Iran) army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It is a classical expression of defiance. So we will succinctly say it, Molon Labe!
Freedom has never been free. It has been paid for with the blood of Patriots since the birth of our Great Republic USA. As time passes, it is up to true Americans to teach the next generation the Truth about Liberty and its cost. The greatest Country of all time has been the most free and the most brave due to the Faith by Grace of its Citizens upon The Rock, The Cornerstone of our Country, The Lord Jesus Christ Who is the Only Mediator between God The Father and all of Mankind, which includes woman too, of course.
Our Freedom of Speech and of Worship has always been contingent on the Safety and Security of Keeping that Freedom. The Right to Bear Arms, the 2nd Amendment to our US Constitution was not given to the People for the People by the People so that we could continue to Deer or Bear Hunt, or even to simply and rightfully protect our homes.
The MAIN reason has ALWAYS been to keep “We the People” safe and secure from the eventual possible reality of a corrupted, atheistic/agnostic, and ever-emboldened tyrannical government bent on usurping our God Given Freedoms away from “We The People”. Our Founding Fathers knew this grave potential for it was from whence they had come. The King of England had shown them no mercy and had followed those Freedom seekers to the shores of this Great New Land. The founders had stated how important our God Given Freedoms and Rights were clearly in black and white in our US Constitution and in the Declaration of Independence, the Founding document upon which the US Constitution was based. USA- The Home of the Free and the Brave.
Stay strong. Stay courageous. Our strength is in the Lord, the Joy of the Lord. His name is JESUS. There is No Other Name by which we can be saved!- PBN
Come and Take It,” the song that has rallied gun owners with its remember-the-Alamo-like message, now has an accompanying music video with a special message for Barack Obama and members of Congress.
Grammy-winning musician Steve Vaus, creator of the Buck Howdy character, recorded the song that defies those advocating gun confiscation with one of the slogans of the Texas Revolution, “Come and take it.”
Though the song itself is more vague, the video leaves no doubt who Vaus is talking to in the lyrics.
“Mr. President, members of Congress,” Vaus says in the opening to the video, “you’ve been making a lot of noise about taking our guns away. But you might want to review history.
“1835. Gonzales, Texas Territory,” Vaus continues. “The authorities wanted to confiscate the big gun that protected that colony. You know what the people said? ‘Come and take it.’ Because they were willing to fight for their freedom and their guns. So are we.”
The video then launches into the pointed chorus: “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.”
The lyrics continue, “We want the freedom that God gave us, 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.”
