Texas A.G. Abbott: I’ll Go to Court to Block Any Congressional Gun Ban

Some people wonder what it is that makes Texans love the great State of Texas so much. I submit that it is people like Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott that inspire me and many others.

Texas A.G. Abbott: I’ll Go to Court to Block Any Congressional Gun Ban

Points to El Paso and Juarez, El Paso, where guns are legal is safe … Juarez, where guns are banned, is among the most dangerous cities in the world

Greg AbbottCongress may be ramping up to consider gun restrictions in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says the proposals being discussed now are unconstitutional, and he says he will ask the courts to throw them out if they are approved, 1200 WOAI news reports.

“I’ve been to the Supreme Court twice,” Abbott said in an interview with 1200 WOAI’s Joe Pags. “I can tell you that these laws that try to restrict our gun rights violate the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms. The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken on this issue twice.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) has already indicated that she will try to ban the ownership of so-called ‘assault weapons.’ U.S. Rep Carolyn McCarthy (D-New York) is proposing bill to ban high capacity magazines. President Obama has indicated that he plans to fast track a gun restriction, even though the White House hasn’t said what proposal it will support.

Abbott says whatever is passed will be a waste of taxpayers time and money, because it won’t pass Constitutional challenges, and he says gun restrictions are ‘illogical,’ pointing to the twin cities of El Paso Texas and Juarez Mexico.

“Guns are banned in Juarez, guns are legal in El Paso,” he said. “But El Paso is far safer than Juarez.”

He says there has not been any effort ever to restrict gun ownership in the United States which has resulted in a reduction in street violence. In fact, he pointed to Chicago and New York City, both of which have among the country’s most restrictive local gun regulations, as examples.

“Two places that are two of the most dangerous cities in the United States are two places which have tried to place serious restrictions on guns, to no effect, to no consequence,” he said. “It is clear that gun restrictions are not successful.”

Abbott said the logic behind anti-gun measure escapes him.

“For something like the past eight or nine years, there have been more people killed by clubs and hammers than there have been by rifles,” he said.

And then we have newly sworn in Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

I didn’t support Ted Cruz in the primaries, I supported Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, but once the primaries were over and we were down to SERIOUS business I had no choice other than to support Cruz. I am NOT going to vote for a Democrat, unless that person can prove to me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they will be a better choice than the GOP or Conservative candidate. Cruz was, in my opinion, the best candidate.

Ted Cruz was sworn in to the U.S. Senate and immediately came out swinging for the fences, and I admire that, no nonsense, no mealy- mouthed indecision, Ted Cruz came out hard and heavy and pissed off every anti-gun, abortion loving Libber Moron in the State of Texas, and many more across the nation.

I am now solidly standing in support of Ted Cruz!

Ted Cruz Takes Stand Against Gun Control and Hagel in “No Compromise” Strategy

Ted CruzFreshman Republican Senator Ted Cruz is the newest Texan in the Senate and so far he has not been shy to criticize Washington.

In a 12-minute interview on Fox News Sunday, Cruz said he does not believe in compromise in D.C. He also said he will not support the confirmation of former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary, and is adamantly against current gun control proposals and the fiscal cliff deal, which he called a “lousy deal.”

During a time in which the Republican Party seems to be in search of a new identity, especially after losing the Latino vote by a 3 to 1 margin, Cruz, a Cuban American, is defiantly sticking to his conservative principles.

“I don’t think what Washington needs is more compromise,” Cruz said to Fox News’ John Roberts. “I think what Washington needs is more common sense and more principle.”

Yes indeed, Ted Cruz has what it takes to make Libber heads EXPLODE, and that is a good thing! I sincerely hope my U.S. House Representative, Pete Sessions, is listening!

I support Ted Cruz in this, and make NO mistake, as soon as his interview went public the Dem/Libbers went into instant ATTACK mode, saying Cruz had no brains and that he would be a one term Senator, things of that nature.

Really Dem/Libbers? You didn’t defeat him in 2012, what makes you think you can defeat him in 2018 if he keeps Texas Conservatives fired up like they are now?

Liberalism really is a mental disorder!

    Good blog, Fred. I just hope Cruz is not another one who ‘talks a good talk but doesn’t walk the walk’…to use a couple of old cliches.

    • TexasFred says:

      If he is, then the Libbers may be right, he’ll be a one term Senator…

      I hope he is the REAL DEAL, Lord knows we need a Texas Senator that is in possession of a set of BALLS, John Cornyn has NONE..

  2. Longstreet says:

    I watched that interview on Fox News. I have to tell you, as an old broadcaster, Ted Cruz is a reporter’s dream! The interviewer doesn’t have to lead him — nor pull answers out of him. He was fired up, knew what he wanted to say, said it, then nodded to the anchor when he was finished with his thought. You could see the delight on the face of Fox’s anchor.

    All I know of Mr. Cruz is what I saw Sunday. What I saw Sunday — I Like — a LOT!

    Now, having said all the above — we can watch the Mainstream Media go after Cruz. I can see it now. They’ll try to make him the Gomer Pyle of Texas. (Hey, I’m here in North Carolina where the fictional Gomer Pyle lived!) Don’t sweat it. If Cruz can stop being so NICE to the media, and cut them off at the knees a few times they will grudgingly respect that and be forced to seriously report the man’s position. But be sure — they’re going after him.

    There is no doubt in my mind that there is gun control legislation coming and it will be up to the states and probably the sheriffs to say they are not going to support this unconstitutional legislation because we can no longer count on John Roberts to do the right thing. Ted Cruz is off to a great start and I support him from here in New Hampshire, Texas is looking like a better place to live every single day!

    I CALL SENATOR TED CRUZ A TEXAS AMERICAN!!!!!
    (all caps on purpose),,,because I am shouting!!!

  5. theredneckengineer says:

    I’m certainly glad to see some of our elected officials stand up to this nonsense. Every one of the proposed gun control bills would have done nothing to stop any of the recent shootings.
    I have my issues with Abbot here and there, but overall I can get behind the guy. Hopefully Cruz will turn out better than I thought he would originally.

    If you don’t mind, Fred, I would like to link your post on my own blog, with full attribution of course/as usual.

  6. Texasperated says:

    Fred, I supported Ted Cruz back when he was only showing 2% support in the polls. I guess his other supporter was his wife. I like Ted Cruz — I could be wrong; it’s happened before. But I’ve been liking what I’ve been hearing from him since he was Solicitor General of Texas.

    And Mr. Chuck, I agree. Down with the hyphenated American stuff.

    Here in Kaufman county we just finished swearing in all our new county officers, including county judge, county commissioners, precinct constables, and sheriff. I was there. And I reminded them that the reason they were required to solemnly swear or affirm to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the US even though they are county officers is the doctrine of interposition. If the feds become enemies of the constitution, then our county officers (sheriff and his posse, aka the militia) have the responsibility to protect us against them.

  7. Katie says:

    There once was a time that a Democrat could be a Conservative. And that a member of the GOP would be a Liberal. WTF happened?

    • BobF says:

      Katie, I don’t know about the GOP being liberal but not to long ago, Democrats held some conservative views. Look at this past years Democrat National Convention and their platform and then look at JFK. JFK cut taxes, was very strong on defense, believed our rights came from God, and stood up to the USSR. He would no longer be welcome in today’s Democrat Party.

  8. I actually think that Ted Cruz is the Real Deal.

    He needs to take advantage of his Mexican roots — as opposed to my Congresscritter who is simply Caucasoid — Tom McClintock.

    Cruz speaks well contemporaneously.

    If he and your AG can link up, then a rather significant precedent will have been set.

    I am new to this blog.
    Everyone needs to checking in on this site daily.
    Keep up the great work Fred
    Thanks

  10. I first heard about Ted Crux from Gun Owners of America. It would appear that everything they said about him was true. Let’s hope and pray that continues.
