Devine resident Austin Ehlinger and his family took part in a January 2013 Guns Across America rally in Austin. The words underneath the assault rifle on Ehlinger’s banner — “Come and Take It” — were used during the Texas and American revolutions and immortalized on the iconic flag flown in the Battle of Gonzales in 1835.
