Texas Attorney General, Standing Up For US

Via The Redneck Engineer** via Texas Fred

  Congress may be ramping up to consider gun restrictions in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says the proposals being discussed now are unconstitutional, and he says he will ask the courts to throw them out if they are approved, 1200 WOAI news reports.


  “I’ve been to the Supreme Court twice,” Abbott said in an interview with 1200 WOAI’s Joe Pags..  “I can tell you that these laws that try to restrict our gun rights violate the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms.  The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken on this issue twice.”

Here is a politician who has consistently stood up for individual rights; this is just one more example of it. I’ll be emailing him with a note of encouragement and thanks for doing what is right.
Not only does it stand up for our rights; he does so publicly calling out the ‘logic’ of the antis.

Abbott says whatever is passed will be a waste of taxpayers time and money, because it won’t pass Constitutional challenges, and he says gun restrictions are ‘illogical,’ pointing to the twin cities of El Paso Texas and Juarez Mexico.

“Guns are banned in Juarez, guns are legal in El Paso,” he said.  “But El Paso is far safer than Juarez.”

So, my question to the anti-rights cultists is simple. After reading the article; how do you justify gun control laws using the examples of El Paso Texas and Juarez Mexico?

**Corrected it for you TRE, sorry for the mistake

    I *AM* part Cherokee Injun, but I’m not full “Red” skin. Hence the “redneck” in my blog name, not “Red”.

    Just emailed him to thank him for taking a stand!

    I knew I should have waited for the caffeine to kick in! Sorry friend. Corrected.


    Thanks for sending the email. Thanking those who do right by us is just as important as calling to account those who don’t.
    Should be interesting to see Abbott’s reaction to Obama’s media circus today.
