It's not meant for the military, only the guy dishing out the illegal orders...

WHY DON'T YOU PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THIS...

Exactly, why should should Texas who has ALWAYS had a foot in the door to get away from the federal government suffer at the hands of a government who is on its death bed?

Why do you think Texas is the only state that would be successful as its own country?
Its size? You know there are other countrys that are allot smaller.

Hopefully the US bans high capacity assault weapons, which aren't useful for defending your home OR against the US military (people seem to forget about armored vehicles and riot gear...you will not take on the military with your AK-47 no matter how many wet dreams you've had about it)


Thats total bs, it really depends on the situation and the area. Do you know any thing about combat?

I think it would take a lot for Texas to leave the union. That said, if theye left, you might see Arizona, Louisiana, the gulf states, and maybe even Oklahoma leave too.

One word.... Oil

No other state could secede with out moments later go running back to the states for resources.

Texas has the economy and the oil to fuel the imports and exports it would need to stay afloat.

Given that Mexico is a border country and the cartel being as they are it would be almost suicide for Texas give up gun rights. Honestly what I think keeps Mexican violence in Mexico is American gun owners. It's still legal to shoot trespassers in Texas if they are deemed a threat to your property and drug/human runners are threats.
Texas is the only state that could make it as a country and in order for it to keep its ground as that force is to keep their gun laws the way they are.

I wish Texas would just do it already and stop talking about it. Not because I support it nor think it's a good idea, but for 2 reasons.

1) Texas is kind of a national embaressment, if they want to leave, good go ahead and try it.
2) If they ever just being all talk and actuall attempt to try it, it will be fun to watch them get smacked down and it should shut them the hell up for a few decades.

Why are you do against Texas. They didn't even really want to be part of the states in the first place not saying it wasn't good that they joined but Texas always knew it could make it on its own but was a naive child afraid to leave the nest.

Allot of other states have good resources as well. Thats beside the point, you dont have to have resources to make it as a country.

Ok name another state that...

Has ocean access. Yeah the USA will just let this new country just use their infrastructure.
Oil makes the world go round. Any freight movement will need lots of oil.
A sizable militia. Texas has many organized militias currently functioning and training.
A large population. Those who decide to stay will have to take on the roles needed to make the new country work.
An decent infastructure that could support a country. Texas has the road, rail, air ports, sea ports, and border crossings to conduct business easily world wide.

Texas WILL secede before giving up our guns.

There are things that Texans will tolerate, but giving up the 2nd Amendment and losing the ability to DEFEND ourselves and our families against SCUMBAG criminals, drug-lords and gangsters from below our borders as well as within the states, is NOT an option. NOT up for debate.

Family and their safety and security matters more than some modern day gun-hating TRAITORS looking to kill our Constitution and Bill Of Rights that We The People are blessed with having in America.

Is that why we call DC when our wildfires get out of control?

Yes. We would. We will not be manipulated into giving up the right to defend ourselves. That is nothing to be ashamed of. I do hope that it doesn't come to that.

DC gets lots of Texas tax dollars.

Why not call DC to get something back?

Why would the other states care? Nothing there that isn't available anywhere else.

Good luck with that whole southern border thing.

See ya, so long, buh-bye!!
