The Texas General Land Office, which took control of the Alamo in 2011, approved a gun rights rally for Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, breaking with tradition that had kept demonstrations off the hallowed ground. Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, who signed off on the event and was scheduled to speak at the rally, says he now plans to develop a policy and permitting process. (AP Photo/Eric Gay, File)
