Sign up for the Alarm List to get action alerts regarding firearm freedoms in Texas. We will email you when there is something that needs to be done for our Texas firearm freedoms, such as calling committee members and emailing the house of representatives.
Why do we call it the Alarm List? Good question!
In colonial America, the militia was composed of several groups. The minutemen were famously able to be ready at a minute’s notice, while the bulk of the militia was the remainder of able-bodied men ages 16-50. There was another group, however: the alarm list.
The Alarm List included men ages 50-70. They were retired from normal military service; however, in the event of a dire emergency, they were ready to join the ranks and stand for liberty.
In these times, when we can use the ballot box and the soap box instead of the bullet box, you may consider yourself the alarm list. You are not a career politician, and you may not even enjoy politics, but you prize your liberty and recognize your duty to your country. So keep going about your normal daily routine at home and at work, but when you hear a call for the Alarm List to pitch in and help, know that 5 minutes of your time to send an email or make a phone call truly can make a difference.
“Posterity! You will never know what it cost the present generation to secure your freedom. I hope you make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took such pains to preserve it.”
John Adams, 1775
