Texas Governor Greg Abbott Responds to Obama on Gun Control: COME AND TAKE IT
Is it any wonder why Greg Abbott beat Wendy Davis for the governorship of Texas? This man understands the constitution and has the guts to stand up to Washington, DC.
The Daily Mail reports:
Texas governor challenges Obama to ‘come and take’ the Lone Star state’s guns as the president prepares to take executive action
Texas Gov Greg Abbott criticized President Barack Obama’s plan to move ahead with possible executive actions on guns in a tweet in which he told the Commander-in-Chief to ‘come & take’ the state’s guns.
Obama said in his weekly radio address that he is looking for ways to keep guns out of the hands of ‘a dangerous few’ without depending on Congress to pass a law on the fraught subject of gun control.
He plans to meet his attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on Monday to see what executive actions might be possible. Steps to strengthen background checks could come this week.
At a rally in Biloxi, Mississippi, tonight Donald Trump also pledged to undo any action Obama takes on gun control if he wins the next election.
Trump said: ‘He can’t do that. I will veto that. I will unsign that so fast, so fast.’
Meanwhile Governor Abbot tweeted: ‘Obama wants to impose more gun control. My response? COME & TAKE IT,’ he said in his tweet, while mentioning the NRA.
Here’s the tweet from Governor Abbott:
