    and where did you hear that Texas has it worst than California or NY?

    Texas has some very lax gun laws, such as CC, the Castle Law, no waiting periods, private party sales of firearms without going through an FFL on any type of legal firearm, and so on. there is also in legislation now, of trying to legalize open carry. we even have schools that are allowing teachers and adminstrators with CC permits to carry in school.

    who ever told you that doesn't know much about Texas.

    What possessed you to lump Texas in with CA and NY?

    Its worse in NY these days. Texas is one of the best states for the Second Amendment.

    That's why I asked.. I was in a FB gun forum and I was talking about how ****ty California gun laws are and someone said "it could be worse..like Texas and NY" .. And I thought to myself ..really? Texas? I can't see Texas being worse so that's why I asked

    I once was watching 'Cops' and they were running through back yards in Fort worth. A very old woman looking like she was in her upper 80's was shooting off her back porch at somebody running through her yard at night. The tall city buildings there were visible in the background, and before the police left, one of the officers asked her if she need him to help her reload the revolver for her before he left! In Calif or NY or Mass. she probably would have been arrested.

    there are other states that are better than Texas, but all in all, Texas is quite gun friendly. my mother lives in Southern California, and has tried several times to get me to move there. i love my mother, but it ain't happening. i have too many firearms that wouldn't be legal in California and i don't see it ever getting any better in regards to gun owners there.

    I'll tell you what Axxe, y'all can swing by my place and drop off the guns that are illegal in CA and head to your mothers. What kind of son are you anyhow?

    the kind of son who would rather his mother move to Texas! but, there lies a problem, my mother is somewhat liberal in her thinking. because she is my mother and that i do love her, and out of respect for her, i refuse to discuss politics or my beliefs with her.

    Tell her to move to Austin, and she will think she is in San Francisco 'East'. :)

    my mother and father lived in Austin in the early 1960's when my father was stationed there in the Air Force and my younger brother was born in Austin.

    my mother will probably never set foot outside of California!

    My mom is 82 years old and lives in Santa Cruz (near me) with my brother. She is also a lifelong Democrat liberal, but I have had an effect on her. She voted for Gary Johnson in the last election (she voted Obama the first time around) and she has been pestering me to take her shooting for the first time in her life. I would not have been able to have that effect on her if she lived in another state!


    My offer still stands...

    Comifornia sticks you just as hard as N.Y, were both getting bent by the man. I'm considering moving just because of the gun laws. These idiots here in Cali want to have people even register things that resemble weapons like BB guns and airsoft. WTF is wrong with this state. And now a $50 permit to buy ammo!
