    Somehow I think the people moving because of the gun situation aren't the ones you need to worry about. Or are y'all convinced everything New York is just like Nuuuuuu Yerk Citaaay?

    Gosh.. I think I see what's going on here.. Texans are afraid of those "Yankees". Geez, haven't we got past this already? Seriously, if you guys think New Yorkers are so bad, then you should sell off all your Remington products, because they are made in part by New Yorkers. And, if all people from Illinois are so bad, please sell me your Rock River rifles. Oh yeah, while you are at it, get rid of all your Smith & Wessons, as those are produced in the heart of Yankee land in Massachusetts.

    There is a lot of freedom loving, conservative , pro-2A New Yorkers who you insult with this "we don't want New Yorkers here". Obviously, if people are leaving their own state because of loss of 2A rights, they are not people who want to come to Texas to change your laws.

    Why are so many Texans so naive to see how many liberals come from their own state? I personally think they will help counter a lot of the liberalism that is brewing in your state. And, no, it's not all coming from out-of-staters. Didn't anyone hear of the guy in Houston who said he wanted to shoot NRA members?

    Funny enough, Texans just received their right to open carry. That is a right that Washington residents have had for decades.

    Please, get over this whole Yankee thing, we are all Americans. There is a lot of freedom loving people in New York who are even more conservative than some people in Texas.

    Last I checked, most New York members here speak English. Picking up the Texan dialect might take a little time, but I am sure there are training courses on it that can assist them with the effort. If I am correct you say y'all rather than you all? Right? :p

    News to me. Where do I find info on THAT? A quick search didn't show anything useful but I don't have time to check further at the moment. Last I heard it was in the works.

    I think you Texans may have a lot more in common with those from the upstate areas of NY than you think.
    I wouldn't be too worried about it if I were you.

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is a pro-gun powerhouse. He recently threatened Travis County and the City of Austin with lawsuits if they tried to ban gunshows.
    That is not true. There is no legal way to open carry in TX except in very limited circumstances. That could change in the near future--but we'll have to wait and see.

    Anyone who reads this misinformation and tries to open carry will almost certainly be subject to prosecution.

    Please be careful to verify things like this before posting them as fact.

    Stand corrected.. I was told some wrong information. Somebody on my local firearm forums told me that a new law passed allowing Texas to open carry, but I guess it must have been wrong.

    Well, if New Yorkers want the freedom to open carry, Washington/Oregon/Idaho would be a better option than Texas. Seriously, how can a state that calls itself free not allow open carry? It sounds like Texas has its own regressive liberal policies to deal with. I highly doubt any New Yorker wanting to move there for loss of 2A rights would not support open carry.

    Just for your information not everybody that lives in N.Y. State votes democrat for one thing for another the state has 19 million people in it, there are 13 million of them in NYC alone which votes like you dislike, then there are then other minority 6 million people that vote like you. Question what chance does the 6 million have to change anything except by voting with their feet. What would you do?

    Texas is the last bastion of freedom in this country?

    Clearly they have never been to Nevada.

    My company has a plant in Coppell, and I'm seriously considering a transfer from Long Island. Anybody shoot high power in that area?

    Texas State Rifle Association(TSRA) might have some information or a person to contact on their website.

    If I could get a job down there and find a place to live with my stupid skillset I'd be down there in a heartbeat. Tired of being a southerner in Bloombergs court. Born and raised NY'er don't get me wrong but never had the same ideals as the majority of my neighborhood.

    But with bills and the family home I'm responsible for.. Just sadly can't see it happening as much as I want it too.

    The state in question would probably be Oklahoma. Not Texas, but kinda close... :)

    Wow... I noticed I stopped getting facebook updates from one of my nieces. She is very active and I enjoyed the pictures of her children. I actively looked for her on FB and noticed I had the option to "add her" as a friend.

    When I looked around her page she was posting about unfriending anyone who was pro-gun (And, as you can imagine I have adopted "liking" pro gun sites, and sharing links as part of my grass roots campaign)

    Her and her friends were venomous about it.

    They all live in TX. And are from back east. Keep 'em, we dont want them back here in Maine.
