Texas regulations don’t require background checks for private sales of guns, such as buying from an individual or from some gun shows.
If she's going to complain so much, she ought to get her facts straight instead of propagating the gun-show canard. A period after "private sales of guns" would have done the trick.

Boy, wouldn't we all get a kick out of open carrying, meeting this woman in a store, and striking up a conversation!!!

33, no driver's license, no vehicle, considers herself a cosmopolitan person, yet is scared to death of legal citizens with guns. NYC people don't have a clue as to how most people in this country live. Plus to live in Manhattan, her family income must be very high.

Much of the magazine industry is located in NYC, and when you read the belief system and experiences of authors who live there, you'd want to take some aspirin.

****************************************************************************************************************************

One NYC resident, an adult woman, eventually moved to suburban Connecticut, to a single family home with a yard. She found the reality of "owning trees" to be a very unsettling concept. In NYC, the government owns all the trees. Wow.

SIA
Some people are raised in an atmosphere where freedom doesn’t exist, government is the master of all things.

Like the Pace sauce commercial... get a rope.
Gun control is like stopping drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to drive.

I must confess that I ain't originally from Texas. But you know what the bumper sticker says: "I got here as fast as I could".
I moved to Texas because I LOVE it. It is (or at least used to be) a great state. I admit that I am now a gun-totin' horse-ridin' Texan.
If some moron loves libtardism, they need to move to the correct state (only one hellhole comes to mind currently, on the West Coast). Don't bring your emotional feeling-filled gun fear to our great state. We don't want your kind here.

Is there any way to evict these people?

I didn't originate from Texas either, but was born and raised in the socialist state of Massachusetts. I was raised in a small town and was allowed hunt in the fall and winter season. I had a stevens 410/ .22 as my weapons. I also had a small range in my backyard. When I left in 1988, I had a pistol permit which allowed me to carry a hand gun, I was also required to have an FID card for long weapons.

Funny thing was I was allowed to carry a handgun in Mass, but there was no mechanism for me to legally carry in Texas. Buying and selling guns was less hassle in Texas, and there was more range availibilty than in Mass. I never voted for a Democrat for major office. I never met anyone who admit that they voted for Teddy Kennedy. (I'm sure some did but they were too embarrassed to admit it.

Politics have moved drastically in both states since 1988, I could never move back.

Since we are all confessing. I too am not native Texan. :oops: We moved here in 1970 when I was 9 years old and never left. Being from Kentucky and that there were Kentuckians who died in the Alamo, I always felt a certain sense of entitlement to being in Texas. :mrgreen:
