In the wake of all of the new gun control laws at both state and federal levels, Greg Abbott, Texas Attorney General is extending an invite to all gun owners to move to Texas, especially those that live in New York. Andrew Cuomo, the anti-gun Democratic Governor of New York just signed a set of strict gun laws including a ban on all assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Abbott’s response to Cuomo’s actions was to launch a campaign telling New York gun owners to move to Texas. The online ads, appearing in New York City and Albany say:
“Wanted: Law abiding New York gun owners looking for lower taxes and greater opportunities.”
“Is Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo looking to take your guns? Sick of the media outing law-abiding gun owners? Are you a lawful New York gun owner seeking lower taxes?”
If New Yorkers click on the ads, they are taken to a Facebook page that tells them:
“You’ll fit right in here in Texas.”
“Keep your guns, come to TX.”
