Got up early this morning to head out to the Saxet Gun Show at the Travis County Expo Center. With all of the gun-grabbing legislation and anti-gun rhetoric and mis-information from the complicit Democrat Media Complex, I knew the show would probably be a little busier than usual.
Throw in the Travis City Council’s ill-advised threats to shut down gun shows on county-owned property, I wanted to make sure we got there right at 9:00 a.m. when the doors opened.
My plan was to head out there by myself, but when my wife said she wanted to go, too (which of course meant bringing our boy), how could I say no? When you’re wife tells you she wants to go to the gun show with you, 1) you thank you’re blessings for being married to such an awesome woman, and then 2) tell her to get her butt in gear and let’s get going.
At about 9:05 a.m. we turned left from MLK onto Decker Ln, and immediately hit a line of cars trying to get into the Expo Center:
A mile away. The line coming from the other direction was nearly as long.
All trying to get into the same gate:
I’ve been to the Saxet Gun Show a number of times over the last several years. And I’ve never seen anything like this. The gun-grabbing leftists have no idea what they’ve done; no idea of the size of the beast that they have awakened.

So, while we didn’t make it into the gun show today, I did get to spend the morning with my wife and boy, and we got to chow down on some of the best BBQ in the state (Cash had some of mommy’s mashed potatoes and gravy and some of daddy’s black eyed peas).
