(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.

As a very conservative,well armed,married to a beautiful Texan, escaped New Yorker(the Bronx) now living in the paradise of central Texas(10 Years)I say..... HELL NO!!!

There are actually many of us in the NE who - like you - recognize that our values and love for freedom are such that we would be more 'at home' in a place like Texas. It would also help to offset the votes of the illegals and libs who flock to Austin. We need to keep Texas from becoming like Florida and Virginia on the electoral map.

I am looking to pull up stakes from the PRNJ in the next 5 years or so, and Texas & Utah are on my short list. Congratulations on your escape from NY.

I think you are basically right. I am 61, if not for my daughter who is a widow with three young daughters, my wife and I would be in Texas or South Carolina right now. We got married in Belton, Tx when I was in the Army many moons ago. Good memories there. I’d love a place where I could build our own shooting range.

Not to mention that the more crowded a place becomes, the more liberal people start to think, because crowding forces compromises to freedom and forces the sharing of resources.

For example, since the First Commandment of Firearm Safety Is to “Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction” and since in crowded situations—where there are people living all around and even above and below you—there is no safe direction. So in such crowded situations guns are unsafe and the pressure will be on to place increasingly severe restrictions on gun ownership.

No more people from NY, unless you are FReepers. BTW, bring water with you when you come here.

There are some liberal gun owners here. Or I should say “old time democrats” Not the kind of retarded Marxist lunatics that are so common in the northeast, although we have some of those too. But for the most part they aren’t gunowners.

I came for the jobs too! Voted for Cruz, I did.

Some of us trapped in liberal hells are more than willing to contribute to making Texas great!

Really! Shut up Perry or if you are going to invite them, warn them to leave their east coast social and economic liberalism behind when they come and join the Christian, constitutional wild west! Most are way too stupid to understand why Texas is free and they aren not free.

They will enslave us in a New York minute!

That’s what my point is, they’re the ones that have created their own problems. Let them deal with them.

When they show up, ANYWHERE, they bring that BS, NY attitude with them and its never positive.

“There are plenty of pro life, pro gun, pro God, pro America folks in the northeast ..”

Like my family, and me, and a great state senator is KATHY MARCHIONE! She is pro-life, and conservative in every way. Please sign her pro-2nd amendment petition:

She already has over 100,000 signatures!
