Texas Official Invites NY Gun Owners to Lone Star State

(Breitbart) – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is rolling out the welcome mat for New Yorkers who would like to keep their guns—and their money.

Abbott used his campaign money to produce and place ads on media websites in New York City and Albany encouraging residents to move to Texas. Why? To avoid the severe gun restrictions put into place by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, as well as the high income taxes of the Empire State.

FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Don’t Let The Government Take Your Guns! Protect Your Second Amendment Rights!

One ad reads: “WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities.” If the viewer clicks on the ad, the link goes to a Facebook page extolling the advantages of moving to Texas, such as the lack of an income tax which would enable people to “keep more of what you earn and use that extra money to buy more ammo.”

Abbott minced no words courting New Yorkers, saying:

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.

New Yorkers are now limited by Cuomo’s new restrictions, including an expansion of the assault weapon ban already in place and limits on ammunition capacity.

Texas is a different matter; Abbott has committed to sue to block any gun restrictions enacted by Congress.
