When they have a problem in Texas they do not wait for the Federal Government to solve the problem, they take care of it themselves. As many know, we here in Texas have a border problem. Lake Falcon is a lake that borders Texas and Mexico. Last year several boaters were killed by drug cartel folks from the other side. We are now aware that the automatic weapons used in the killings were probably from “Fast and Furious”.
When Texas joined the Union as a sovereign nation in 1836, we retained the right to have a Navy to ward off the Mexicans, since the United States refused to protect us. This is our first Naval vessel of this century, small but potent. It will soon be safe to fish and boat on Lake Falcon this summer.
Just about every Texan is prepared to be in a gun fight, and you can’t have enough guns.
