Texas AG To New Yorkers: “Keep Your Guns, Come To Texas”


The Second Amendment might be a tourism industry for Texas, or at least if the Texas attorney general has anything to do with it.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is running ads in New York City and Albany to promote Texas and knock New York’s new gun laws, the New York Times reported.

“Here in Texas, you will have the liberty and the opportunity to achieve your dreams. On top of that, we have no income tax, yet still manage to have a multi-billion dollar budget surplus,” Abbott says on his Facebook page.

“We have right to work laws and a reasonable regulatory environment. Texas has created more than 275,000 jobs in the last year alone! And we’ll fight like hell to protect your rights. You’ll also get to keep more of what you earn and use some of that extra money to buy more ammo.

I hope to see you soon in Texas. In the meantime, sign up to show your support for our second amendment rights.


Attorney General of Texas

About 2,000 protestors at the Capitol on Saturday criticized the decision by the state Legislature and Gov. Andrew Cuomo last Tuesday to enact the toughest gun-control laws in the nation.

Cuomo has hailed the decision as a way to save lives and curb the gun violence in New York and the nation.

On his Twitter account today, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was unmoved by the Texas attorney general’s effort.

“With all due respect to my colleague: thanks but no thanks,” Schneiderman wrote.

  1. Delta departs for Houston and Dallas daily from LGA and JFK. Have a nice flight. Bring your A/C as well as your guns.

  2. Greyhound. Trailways. Amtrak. A boat to Galveston. Walk if you want. Just go. You’ll like it better down there in True Conservative Country. And were happy to have you go. We can be the Progressive Capital with you and your unhappy complainers g-o-n-e.

  3. I think the Texas AG has good points and the new pull backs of our Rights is just another reason to leave NY. My plans are in the making, maybe not to Texas, but to a much friendlier State.

    NY is not friendly to business, workers, taxpayers or the people it is supposed to care for.

    The strictest guns laws in the country are in NYC and you can read about what happens there every day.

    NY permits serious overcharging for Medical Services and willingly pays the bills. The amount of residents receiving public funds is unbelievable. The EBT cards used for items they are not supposed to be used for in the grocery, drug stores and the like is just despicable.

    Those who commit crimes are let out after so-called ‘rehabilitation’ and left to wander on their own with no supervision.

    Our taxes are just over the top, as are our Insurance costs. The Workers Comp board is a constant back breaker for businesses as is the Tax Department and their ‘questionnaires’.

    The NYS Thruway is in terrible condition and the cost to use it is not cheap-just ask the big rig drivers.

    Our DMV License Plates now carry a ‘Usage Fee’ which amounts to a double usage fee as the registration was just that to begin with. The cost to get new license plates is much higher than it should be and the darned things are not even embossed as they used to be–much less expensive to make but yet cost more.

    DOT seems to wait until complete deterioration so it needs to completely rebuild bridges and roads rather than do regular maintenance. Road crew trucks are full no matter which coffee shop they are at.

    Closer to home, Albany pushes kids to drink on Thursday Summer nights then wonders why we have an epidemic of alcohol related issues. Kids are allowed to walk around with open containers on Thursday Nights and then are also allowed to walk to their cars to drive home.

    EBT card users are allowed to purchase an item costing $5.00 at a store and ask for ‘cash back’ so they can spend the cash in ways that it was not meant to be spent. If you don’t believe this, check out the big stores like I did-Walmart in Bethlehem-and you will see it. Fraud is allowed and is everywhere.

    DOT trucks routinely ‘plow’ roads with no snow–we have all seen the sparks.

    School buses-large ones- head out of district away from their home base with one or two passengers.

    CDTA buses routinely are very empty to the point it would be cheaper to have us pay for taxis.

    There is just so much good about NY and we think of more ways to collect money from the few of us who own property and equipment.

    Yes, the Texas AG has a few good points. We have a state that is the elephant in the room and on our back and those in charge do not have to pass a common-sense test before running for office.

    Of course, we vote them in….

    Just a few thoughts.
    Thanks for the time.
