So, Christopher Sherman, the Rio Grande Valley correspondent for The Associated Press out of McAllen posts this story which is updated at 3:01 pm Central on Friday: "Gun rights rally to break long Alamo tradition." Sherman lets a bit of his bias show with language characterizing the rally as a "gun extravaganza."
This is how to make another gun rally in gun-friendly Texas stand out: Tell everybody to bring their rifles and shotguns to the Alamo, the state's most popular attraction, which sits downtown in the country's seventh-largest city. And be sure to invite the state's gun-friendliest politician, who also happens to hold the keys to the historic site.When the organizers of "Come and Take It San Antonio!" made plans for a display of long guns Saturday, this setting seemed ideal but the event is now drawing attention for breaking a century-long tradition against public demonstrations at the shrine of Texas liberty, where Col. William Travis and 200 Texas defenders famously died in a siege with the Mexican army in 1836. Such public displays have usually been relegated to an adjacent plaza.Some are asking whether a pro-gun group has gone too far in extolling firearms rights, a feat considered near impossible in Texas. And whether a politician may have been too willing to accommodate them."We certainly consider the Alamo our family cemetery," said Lee Spencer White, president of the Alamo Defenders' Descendants Association. "Our guys died there and we take it very seriously."

Now I don't know the politics of Lee Spencer White but at 04:58 PM Pacific, three minutes before the update, one "bastrop" who lives in Austin TX and pimps for abortion advocate Wendy Davis for Texas governor posts this on the collectivist Daily Kos website: Turning Texas: Land Commish running for Lt. Governor issues unprecedented Gun Rally permit at Alamo.
"Patterson is using this as a launching bad to shore up a Tea Party base. Unfortunately, this tactic will likely pay political dividends and further inspire a more aggressive and confrontational image of public arenas to intimidate and strong-arm Republicans in Texas to be wary of opposing their radical and extreme agenda. Stay tuned. This is only just the beginning for Patterson and the rest of the Teabagger gang."
What a kvetch.
