• Are New Yorkers Finally Acting Like Texans?

    COME AND TAKE ITMy goodness!  If New Yorkers are up in arms (quite literally) over stricter gun laws, can you just imagine how Texans would react in similar circumstances? Of course, it is difficult to imagine that state laws here in Texas would ever mirror those of the Big Apple state, where Governor Andrew Cuomo has even been heard to at least  murmur the words gun confiscation, something I can’t quite imagine Rick Perry doing.

    Right or wrong, both Emerson and Thoreau would be very proud of those New Yorkers who seem to be planning a mass resistance in civil disobedience.  “I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes.” – President Brian Olesen, American Shooters Supply, to the New York Post

    The National Rifle Association also weighed in:

    “While we don’t get involved in campaigns to resist the law, I will say this: Historic experience here and in Canada shows that when you try to force gun owners into a registration and licensing system, there’s usually mass opposition and mass noncompliance,” he said. “I think it’s going to be very difficult for the governor to get mass compliance with this new law.” – President David Keene, NRA, to the New York Post

    It does sound as though there are quite a few comparisons that could be made between these 21st century New Yorkers and those Texans of 1835 who called loudly across the river, “Come and take it!” doesn’t it?

    I suppose we will see in the fairly near future just how near and dear to the governor’s heart this issue is since he is up for re-election next year.
