“We want gun manufacturers across the country to know that Texas is both a business-friendly environment and committed to protecting our Second Amendment rights,” Mr. Farenthold says. “That’s why we wrote this letter inviting them to relocate their facilities to the Lone Star State, where we’re always open for business.”
“We understand what it takes to keep jobs in our state. We respect the Constitution of the United States of America. Come on down to Texas where we love our guns and our jobs. We won’t stifle your business with burdensome regulations and we will protect your Second Amendment rights,” agrees Rep. Randy Weber.
“Invest in America. Buy a congressman.”
