Gun owners and Second Amendment supporters from around the state gather for an armed open carry march through downtown Temple, Texas, June 1st, 2013. The "Come and Take It Temple" event was in partial response to the recent arrest of Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham and confiscation of his rifle by the Temple police department as he and his son were walking down a area road with an AR-15 rifle slung across the front of his body. Temple Police arrested Grisham on March 16 and first charged him with resisting arrest in connection with his possession of an AR-15 rifle slung across the front of his body. The charge was later changed to interfering with a police officer’s duties. Grisham contends he was not violating the law and his arrest and the confiscation of his weapons were unlawful. The case has yet to be heard in court.
