Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's response to Obama's New Year's speech on increasing gun control in America?

According to Infowars, Abbott sent out a tweet Jan. 1: "Obama wants to impose more gun control. My response.#? COME & TAKE IT."

His words reference a famous flag in the Texas Revolution with a silhouette of a canon and the words "come and take it" directed at the Mexican army.

Abbott is no stranger to tweeting out his thoughts concerning the Second Amendment.

Back in October, he tweeted, "I'm EMBARRASSED: Texas #2 in nation for new gun purchases, behind CALIFORNIA. Let's pick up the pace Texans."
