Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) just crashed Joe Biden’s party and Democrats are furious. The conservative senator from Texas has sent a very clear message.
According to Breitbart News, Cruz wore a “Come and Take It” mask to Biden’s inauguration — signaling to the new administration that he would not allow any infringements upon our right to keep and bear arms.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) tweeted out a photo of Cruz wearing the mask with the iconic logo and statement. Back in 2018, when President Donald Trump spoke to the NRA convention, he explained its significance.
He told the story from 1835 when “soldiers from General Santa Anna’s army marched into the little Texas town of Gonzales and ordered those Texans to surrender their small cannon,” their primary means of self-defense.
But the people of Gonzales would not stand for it, as “dozens of Texas” rushed to the aid of the small town and “raised a flag for all to see.” A cannon was emblazoned on the flag with the words “Come and Take It.”
Symbolically, by wearing a mask with the same powerful statement, Cruz has told President Joe Biden that there will be no compromise on the left’s gun-grabbing agenda. “Shall not be infringed” was not a mere suggestion in the Second Amendment.
