    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.

    @Jerry

    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.

    News flash. Thousands of foreigners with green cards are already doing this or haven't you noticed? I say hells ya to more gun lovers with a level anti barry mindset.

    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.

    My dear sir, to make such an egregious statement, you obviously are from neither Oklahoma nor Texas.

    We had a huge invasion of Yankees in the 70s and 80s, and I, for one, don't care to suffer another in my lifetime; gun lovers or not.

    LOL, there is a lot of truth in that ad. Especially after King Cuomo's recent grandstanding. And then he thinks he is going to be President?

    Chances are the Yankees who are moving to Texas to have more gun freedom don't have those screwy liberal ideas. Don't forget, upstate NY is quite a conservative place with a lot of gun owners. Downstate and NY City is another story.

    That is understood. All new arrivals to Texas should have to submit to a course in Texas culture and history.

    100% correct. All the people in NY state are not like the NY City gun haters. Upstate is full of conservative gun lovers who are disgusted with the liberals in Albany.
