There has been a growing secession movement in Texas for a number of years. Fact of the matter is that Texas has always had an independent strain running through its culture, which may well be a carryover from the fact that it was its own independent republic from 1836 to 1846.
So, maybe it isn’t much of a surprise that Texans are wanting to nullify all Federal gun laws in their state.
It’s the kind of thing that warms the heart of any freedom-loving American, but, with so many anti-Second Amendment crackpots in Washington, I wouldn’t expect this to be cut and dry.
In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if Obama self-styles himself as another Abraham Lincoln and declares martial law in Texas, just like Lincoln did in Maryland (you don’t remember that from your government school history class, do you?), to prevent it from leaving the Union. In Texas, though, that might cause a full-scale revolt and another American civil war, which is a scary thought.
What do you think: Would a move by Texas to nullify Federal gun laws cause a civil war? Comment below.
