Posted on 01/15/2021 5:03:56 PM PST by DFG
One year ago, a wave of Texas counties began declaring that they were “Second Amendment sanctuaries.” Now Governor Greg Abbott has said that he wants the entire state to be a gun rights haven.
“I want to make sure that Texas becomes a Second Amendment sanctuary state so that no government official at any level can come and take your gun away from you, despite those people who said, ‘Heck yes, we’re going to take your gun,’” said Abbott during the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s 2021 Policy Orientation.
“We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take people’s guns away in Texas,’” said Abbott in a self-censored reference to Beto O’Rourke’s quip during his presidential campaign.
Though O’Rourke’s line on the debate stage in Houston was meant to rally support from pro-gun control voters, it roused the concerns of pro-Second Amendment supporters.

Texas and Florida, should be “Constitution” sanctuaries.
With democrats seeking to destroy the constitution and all amendments, republicans and conservatives, and all that respect the constitution and the rule of law, all need constitution sanctuaries.
So now we’re calling places sanctuaries if the law is actually enforced there? Just shows how quickly flouting the law went from the exception to the rule.
Little weak sister.
Free speech, right to bare arms, voting , it’s already started.
As a native Texan, I can tell ya...no one will be taking our guns. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever!
Abbott is up for re election in ‘22. Trying to look like a tough guy.
God Bless TEXAS!
The “Come and take it” thing isn’t just some historical trivia to Texans but a living eternal attitude.
We have constitutional carry in OK and no illegal alien cities allowed. Those two items alone set us apart from many.
I've noticed that OK has no blue cities or counties. Possibly the only such state. May it always be so.
At least he didn’t come out against trump. Everyone is lining up.
With people fleeing Kalifornia and Illinois for Texas it might not be “red” much longer.

Then there is rumor about Matthew McConaughey running. I remember reading awhile back that he supports “assault” weapon ban.
Are they ready to implement constitutional carry? If not, then they are doing much.
DO IT! I thought most counties in Texas were that way anyway.
Forget about “sanctuary” anything.
Texas should be the first to officially and formally identify and declare the Constitutional *Contract* has been grossly violated without recourse/redress — then announce itself a nation.
Hopefully, with any clear mindedness, a bunch of states do the exact same thing.
It could go all the way to Florida in the East, and all the way to Canada to the North. Could even wrap around Colorado with a little motivation...
Just dreaming a little. With the right motivation, WV, KY, IN, TN, MO, and IA may have potential as well.
My local sheriff stated for the record he won't enforce any federal anti-gun or gun confiscation laws.
I’ll hold up My end,
