The Second Amendment Cowboy

Just down from Cadillac Ranch and still along route 66 is the Second Amendment Cowboy. The Second Amendment to the US Constitution provides the right to keep and bear arms. Why a Second Amendment Cowboy? Texas! 

A 22-foot cowboy with the second amendment and a quote from George Washington at his feet. With three vintage Cadillacs thrown in for good measure.

The plaque reads:

TEXAS

2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. –George Washington
