TX AG urges NY gun-lovers to move to TX

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas attorney general has launched an Internet ad campaign inviting New Yorkers who feel their state's new gun laws are too restrictive to move to Texas.

Anyone accessing a variety of media sites from Manhattan or Albany starting Wednesday may be confronted with two pop-up ads.

One reads, "Is Gov. Cuomo looking to take your guns?" Another says, "Wanted: Law abiding New York gun owners looking for lower taxes and greater opportunity."

Paid for with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott's campaign funds, the ads reference the nation's toughest gun control law. It was signed Tuesday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The ads link to a Facebook site proclaiming, "Keep your guns, move to Texas."

The site says Texas has no income tax and created more than 275,000 jobs in 12 months.
