Love how those Texans make sure there’s no residual cost when they deal with criminals, any word if it was one of Obama’s sons?

Shot multiple times in the chest?

I for one would like a little more information on how tight the shot group is.

Reportedly, all shots were inside the Obama campaign logo on his T-Shirt.

This holdup thing, this does not seem to be a good thing to do in Texas.

It was so refreshing to read an article like this without the Northeastern limp-weenie “no word from the District Attorney if charges will be filed against the shooter” statement.

My biggest regret in life may be that I was not born in Texas*. I am certain that they are my kind of people.

*Except Austin.

" The man with the CHL was shot in the arm and the hand by the robber, but the robber was shot multiple times in the chest."

This is known as "gun control" in Texas.

*Except Austin.

And the Rio Grande Valley. It's a third world country filled with Obama voters and non-stop crime.

“My biggest regret in life may be that I was not born in Texas*.”

Mine also... But I have managed to live here for 74 years minus four years in the Navy...

I also found one of those Texas beauties and I believe my grand kids are seventh generation Texans as a result...

And mine as well; I have traced one of my family lines to living here prior to statehood. I'm also a Central Texas native.

On another note, my family's office is 11 miles out in the country and I actually had a man from New York come in to pick up an application for a friend today. He said he is retired and able to move without having a job lined up ahead, so after deciding to flee his state he chose Texas. After he gets established, he has more family members who want to join him here. He was a right-minded fellow, so I welcomed him to Texas :)
