Y'all come to Texas, state official tells New York gun owners



By Jim Forsyth




SAN ANTONIO | Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:31pm EST



(Reuters ) - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for New York gun owners: Come to Texas, and bring your guns with you.



"Texas is better than New York, and New York just gave us another excuse to say that," Abbott, a Republican, said on Thursday, after ads extolling Texas appeared on several media websites.



New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed sweeping gun-control legislation earlier this week expanding the state's ban on assault weapons and putting limits on ammunition capacity in the wake of last month's school shootings in Connecticut.



Abbott, a possible candidate for governor of Texas in next year's election , used campaign money to buy ads on websites of news organizations in New York City and Albany.



One ad says in classic Western script: "WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities."



Clicking on the ad leads to a Facebook page touting the virtues of Texas, including the fact that the state has no income tax so "you'll be able to keep more of what you earn and use that extra money to buy more ammo."



Abbott told Reuters the ads are a "way to tweak our liberal friends up in the Northeast."



"It is tongue in cheek, but there is a deeper message here," he said. "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."



Abbott has said he will file a federal lawsuit to throw out any nationwide gun restrictions implemented by Congress.



A Cuomo spokesman did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment

This man is a idiot, why would he ask a bunch of freeloaders that voted in a lot of liberal politicans to come to Texas, so that our taxes will rise from having to support them, we dont need their guns we have plenty of our own. Evil or Very Mad

Don't be so quick to Judge them, those boys in New York who he was reaching out to are not those liberal types ... There are many hard working Conservative gun owning New Yorkers .... They have a lot in common with Texans and hold the same values... Y'all come home!

Come on where's that hospitality Texans are famous for? It takes a period of adjustment to break in those shoes... Most Texans got that infectious hospitality that makes one heart feel right at home... That was my experience and it's the one I'll remember

We are all children of God! I'm with you Diamond, I will feed the multitudes with all I have. That's written somewhere isn't it?

Hey, I'm from NY (buffalo area) and have worked my whole life including 10 years in the Navy, have Never recieved benifits from the state and pay my taxes. I own guns, raise most of my own food, eat alot of deer and rabbit. Although i think you Texans are lucky to live where you do regarding guns and taxes, (and weather lol) i would not move there. Too close to the border with the drugs and crime and i'm terrified of those big roach bugs in the south. So don't worry about me moving there.
