Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for New York gun owners: Come to Texas, and bring your guns with you.
By now you’ve no doubt heard about the nonsensical gun control legislation that New York Governor AndrewÂ Cuomo signed into law last week. Not only did New York expand their already existing ban on “assault weapons”, but they also limited magazine capacity to seven rounds, because, you know, criminals will definitely only carry seven rounds now.
In response, Abbot used campaign money to buy ads on websites of news organizations in New York City and Albany with messages like “WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities.”
[blockquote cite=”Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott”]Texas is better than New York, and New York just gave us another excuse to say that.
It is tongue in cheek, but there is a deeper message here. Texas really does stand as the last bastion of ultimate freedom in this country. Over the last decade, more than 4 million people moved to this state, and one reason is freedom and one reason is economic opportunity.[/blockquote]
Personally, I think this is a wonderful idea, so to the good people of New York: vote with your feet, move to Texas, and bring your guns with you.
