Well that's probably the motivator right there.
Texas can do better than a wimpy 4 out of 10.

"We believe an armed society is a peaceful society. This is Texas, and everybody has a gun."

– James McAbee, a Texas pastor known as the "Pistol-Packing Preacher" in a 2013 USA Today article about Texans and gun control.

Pick up every single firearm in Texas, send those who resist to re-education camps. Put their children in cages until re-educatiom is completed.

If Texas want to do this, so be it. If that's what the residents of that state want to do, ok.

Dont like it? Move to another state that regulates firearms more harshly.

Well said Comrade.

If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.

Texas scores an F from the Giffords Center on gun laws. It is 18th in gun ownership rate and is tied for 26th in gun death rate with 12.4 per 100k.
That death rate is nearly 5 points higher than California and nearly triple the rate of New York, both states with at least a rating of A- or higher.

#15 - You seem very comfortable quoting your hero, Joe Stalin. ESAD "comrade."

A good place to start picking up Texas firearms would be in Collin County where Daniel is on a watch list for being a Poor Richards, "regular."

The Republic of Texas won't do anything as long as it's innocent brown people getting gunned down.

Wonder what's going to happen when the pendulum eventually swings the other way and the red hats start getting gunned down? Will changes be made? Or will brown people not be allowed to own guns?

#21 How degrading. They are Mexicans, not brown people.

Texas to Loosen Firearm Laws

Cool.

More guns for me!

Or will brown people not be allowed to own guns?

Who the hell cares? According to the US Census Bureau, I am classified "white". YAY!!!
