I hear you Beto. You did not stutter when you stated that If elected, you will take our weapons. You are talking to an ex-lawman. I was well acquainted with evil men. I made it my work to chase down the baddest of the bad. I am under no illusion as to what good people of tender hearts are up against. I hear you.
On the 15th of February 1971, five lawmen gave up their guns to Rene Guzman and Leonardo Lopez in West Dallas. The five handcuffed deputies were driven down to a dirt road between the Trinity River and its levee and told to get out of the vehicle. It was then that Deputy Samuel Garcia Infante told his fellow deputies, “They’re going to kill us, boys!”
Infante barreled into Lopez and was shot and killed. Deputy William Reese, having managed to work his hands free, took a swing at Guzman but missed. He was shot and killed. The execution of Deputy A. J. Robertson followed. Deputy Wendell Dover was shot in the chest but survived despite being badly wounded. Only Deputy A. D. McCurley escaped by throwing himself over the embankment and rolling to the river’s edge.
Three good and decent Christian men were shot and executed and a fourth badly wounded by murderous thugs armed with stolen pistols. They did what no lawman ought ever to do. They gave up their weapons.
Evil men the likes of Rene Guzman and Leonardo Lopez abound. You Beto, and other politicians of your ilk have the right to make your impassioned but misguided speeches. Stop there.
Sadly, it may be coming one day. In the hands of a Beto (by his own admission) we may very well get the oppressive government the Founding Fathers warned against. Against such came the inspiration from God for our Divine Constitution, which takes into account the 2nd Amendment.
We would do well to remember the warning given by John Adams. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Is it not now time to humbly repent of our sins and return to the God of this land, who is Jesus Christ?
