    Good for him. Actually the New Yorkers can have their pick of western states. A lot of support for responsible gun ownership and the second amendment once you get far away from the big city cesspools.

    Just for fun New York should post an ad on Texas TV:
    "Do you want to live somewhere people are more important than guns? Come to NY where even the Republicans value sanity in gun laws."

    Actually they had something similar to that back in the seventy's... and encouraged a lot of people to move to New York.

    It was the highest benefits available State and encouraged a lot of people to move from other areas to receive more government benefits.
    and now you are seeing results .

    More like "Come to NY where even the Republicans are liberal Democrats...." No thanks. I visited New York 35 years ago, saw all I needed to see, and with their political situation, I have no reason to ever go back. They already have high-income earners fleeing the state because of their onerous tax burden, and their brilliant politicians didn't learn anything from that. They have to come up with new ways to make the place undesirable. I suppose limiting the ability of law abiding citizens to protect themselves is a good way to drive away more. Think Detroit for an example of what liberal/leftist policies accomplish, long term.

    @bsking Great point! Which state has a higher number of people drawing benefits? NY - over 400,000 and Texas slightly over 100,000. And just FYI,

    "CRS Report: Welfare Spending The Largest Item In The Federal Budget

    Ranking Member Sessions and the minority staff of the Senate Budget Committee requested from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) an overview of cumulative means-tested federal welfare spending in the United States in the most recent year for which data is available (fiscal year 2011). The results are staggering. CRS identified 83 overlapping federal welfare programs that together represented the single largest budget item in 2011—more than the nation spends on Social Security, Medicare, or national defense. The total amount spent on these 80-plus federal welfare programs amounts to roughly $1.03 trillion. Importantly, these figures solely refer to means-tested welfare benefits. They exclude entitlement programs to which people contribute (e.g., Social Security and Medicare)."

    Seems there are more people receiving assistance in the US than who are actually working, says a lot about the economic policy of this president.

    Here here! Wish I could vote you up a thousand times. Wish they'd stop whining about seceding and just do it already. Typical Texans, all talk and no action.

    No, but I once met a man who lived in Tennessee, and he was headin’ for
    Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie.

    Let me get this straight, children killed in gun free zones, shoots himself, one goes missing. Man tries to open fire in a TX movie parking lot, gets shot by a legal carrying person...

    GOD BLESS TEXAS!

    @texas_cutie75 How could I forget, but you'd have to change your politics, the left needs more people who to launch the slogan "Don't mess with leftist."

    @PoliticalSpice

    I'm not far right, but there are a lot of things the lefties do that I just can't tolerate. Maybe you should consider switching sides...lol

    Did you learn geography same place you learned history and politics? Your profile has you in Virginia, he is inviting them to Texas. There is a difference.

    @PoliticalSpice The Cali transplants aren't going to Texas, they are moving north. To my state alas. They come in huge numbers and bring their "big city" mentality and problems with them. It's depressing.
    Our state beckons because its such a great place to have a family. Its extremely family friendly and for kids its tops.

    @Fishbone345 Well a lot of them move back and fourth, from california to the east coast. No offense to slc, but I think Texas more attractive for several reasons: Austin, great food: tex-mex & bbq; warm climate, no income tax, proximity to new mexico, the gun laws, new orleans and mexico; also it will likely be a purple, maybe a blue state in about a decade...

    @MongoAPillager I don't want more. Perhaps you didn't understand my post. I want less. I'm perfectly ok with not being friendly with people moving here.

    Wow this Texas dude is super nice. I would be glad to live in a state with someone this caring about people. I know most people think the far right is violent people. But this goes to show that it isnt as true

    Now Texas is a great state! I have kinfolk there and visited Texas. Plus, I am a Dallas Cowboys Fan. New Yorkers need to come and visit. Big Steaks and the atmosphere is great! The Spanish has awesome dishes to try as well.

    Been there loved it, But we might as well make a stand here.

    It's too hot in Texas, come to Missouri, we have liberal gun laws, (that liberals hate, go figure) much lower taxes than NY. Just don't bring your guns through Illinois they'll take them given the chance. Unless you are a Progressive, Liberal, Liberty hating nutjob you'd be welcome here.

    I think it is great add. Nothing is said in a bad way. It just gives the American people another way of thinking. I would leave New York not because of the gun laws but the tax system. They are now either even or a little higher than California on taxes.

    I don't know about that...I'm not sure New Yoykers would be tough enough to ride a

    But Texas will be VERY SORRY if the Knee-Orkers take them up on the invitation, lol. That smell of urine in the morning in your public transportation doesn't exactly smell like victory!

    Hell, anyone knows that, in the USA, you can exercise the freedom to leave one place and go to another...and it is nobody's business why you choose to do it. That is why so many folks come here from other countries. Our state lines are not police controlled borders...so, hit the interstate and go where you wish. The sad part of this equation is that we tend to treat our international borders the same way.
    One thing you must remember though....if Barack Husssein Obama and his anti-gun buddies have their way you had better be ready to re-register your guns at the new location.

    Of course along with that comes schools that teach creation science, bigotry, and a state government that makes the John Birch society look like a bunch of commies.
