Vote with your feet, he says (though be careful not to shoot yourself in them).
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is telling New York residents that if what they desire is low taxes, more opportunity - and above all, the freedom to own guns - they should leave Yankee territory forthwith and make their way to the Lone Star State. Talking Points Memo reports
on new web ads for residents of Manhattan and Albany that began airing Wednesday bearing the message: "Keep more of what you earn and use some of that extra money to buy more ammo." It's hoped the words will be music to the ears of New York residents "sick of the media outing law abiding gun owners" among other ills.
Eric Bearse, a spokesman for Abbot, said the ads were a "sizable web-based buy" with the intention of letting political leaders know that one "should not take advantage of the [Newtown] tragedy to trample on Constitutional rights."
