I speak here not of the dreadful John Lennon song on the Beatles’ White Album, but that apparently (according to the rankings on this list), Texas is only the ninth-most-friendly state for gun owners. This, despite:
Texas does well across the board in our survey thanks to a strong RTC law (that now includes open carry), strong use-of-force laws, and its lack of restrictions on black rifles, magazines or NFA items. The NRA’s Annual Meeting was held in Dallas this year and you could have fit all of the protesters in a VW Beetle.
Maybe if we started handing out .22 rifles to trick-or-treaters on Halloween… except I think they already have them, mostly.
Good grief. I need a drink, and it’s not even ten o’clock.
