What a silly statement. Texas = Armadillos?
I’d choose the Alamo if I had to chose only one thing equalling Texas. But fortunately, I don’t have to choose any ONE thing, because there’s so much, it’s overwhelming. Some, for example, would choose the Bluebonnet fields in spring, or the friendly and mostly God-fearing people and I could go on...
I’ve never been to SD but know a little about it. Not putting it down. Texans can be rather polite folks, too (but fighters when righteously riled). Point being, to make derisive remarks about SD wouldn’t be polite.
All right ya rowdy ruffians. I didn’t diss South Dakota and I sure as hell didn’t diss TEXAS! For the record, I cheer any State that welcomes firearms manufacturers.
Yes, it’s silly. Lighten up, dude. I have a personal issue with ‘dillos, because I nearly flipped a Toyota SUV after running one over in west Texas one spring night. Holy crap, they’re like hitting a freakin’ cinder block.
The central issue is that the state government of SD has passed legislation sheltering gun companies from civil litigation if their guns were used in acts of crime. To my knowledge, no other state can make the same claim - not even Wyoming here.
Oh, and the governor’s office has a task force specifically tasked with attracting gun companies to the state. They’re not just “gun friendly.” They’re actively recruiting - just as they recruited Corbon and HS Precision to the state.
