Texas AG To New Yorkers: If You Hate Gun Laws, Move Here
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s has a message for New Yorkers who don’t like their state’s new gun-control measures. Move to Texas.
On Wednesday, New Yorkers in Manhattan and Albany began seeing two web ads, paid for with Abbott campaign funds, and designed to tug on their holster strings. According to The Austin American-Statesman, the text of one ad reads: “Is Gov. Cuomo looking to take your guns? Sick of the media outing law abiding gun owners? Are you a lawful NY gun owner seeking lower taxes?” The second ad reads: “Wanted: Law abiding New York gun owners looking for lower taxes and greater opportunity.”
People who click on the ads are directed to a group sign-up page on Facebook that includes a message from Abbott, encouraging them to move to Texas.
“Here in Texas, you will have the liberty and the opportunity to achieve your dreams. On top of that, we have no income tax, yet still manage to have a multi-billion dollar budget surplus,” Abbott’s message reads. “You’ll also get to keep more of what you earn and use some of that extra money to buy more ammo.”
