You have to hand it to Texas, they have done an excellent job at maintaining their status as an independent-thinking collection of patriots.

The Lone Star State has a reputation for being a step ahead of the rest of America in the “liberty” department, with a great many citizens maintaining that Texas is no state, rather, likening their enormous land mass to its own republic, that just happens to lend itself to the United States.

That doesn’t fit very well on a bumper stickers, so let’s just stick with “Don’t mess with Texas”.

Texans have also been fervent supporters of the Second Amendment, at least historically speaking, and current governor Greg Abbott certainly isn’t going to change that anytime soon.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) affirmed his commitment to defending the Second Amendment Monday by tweeting, “The gun control debate was settled in 1791.”

1791 was the year in which the Second Amendment was ratified.

Abbott’s tweet was a follow-up on his school security plan, which some feared would contain gun control in the wake of the May 18 Santa Fe High School shooting. The plan was released May 30, 2018, and Breitbart News reported that rather than push new gun controls the plan outlined ways to arm more teachers and school staff, and to have a greater police presence on campuses. Moreover, it addressed how Texas should avail itself of military veterans proficient in firearm use, employing them in school districts to protect faculty and students alike.

As we’ve mentioned before, the creeping infringement on the Second Amendment that we have experienced in recent decades has had a confusing effect on the laws of our nation.  From state to state and city to city, American citizens would be hard pressed to keep track of every piece of gun legislation necessary.

This makes travel nearly impossible, which restricts the rights of the American people, which, in and of itself, is contradictory to the definition of a right.

Ergo, through all of that, these infringements fall out of pursuance to the Constitution, and thusly become nullified.

But, good luck trying to use that excuse against any of the liberals currently dancing on the graves of dead children in Florida attempting to repeal the entirety of our right to bear arms.
