There is some other Texas dude who wants to impeach the President because of his gun views?! This thing is getting silly and out of hand. Look, New York just passed a gun law which does NOT take away the gun from any responsible gun owner. As a NRA member what they did is reasonable. But as predicted the NRA hardliners and the gun industry protested because it would impact their profits.

    You know, there was once a time when the NRA was in favor of some gun control! But not with the current hard line leadership.
    Hard times--meaning a threat to the Constitution--means a hard line.

    Or are you saying Texas doesn't have it's Sovereign Government?
    That would depend on how one wants to define the term. When Texas joined the United States, it did so with no treaty surrendering the sovereignty of the Republic of Texas. Further, the US refused to assume any debt held by Texas. So even after joining the US, Texas, in part, had to function, at least budgetarily, as if it was still independent and Sovereign. The lack of a Treaty is where so much confusion comes in. Even after the Civil War, Texas never met the requirements to re-enter the Union.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Yet they could break themselves down into several smaller states correct? Wouldn't that give them sovereignty?

    No more than they have claim to it now. It can be broken up into as many as 4 states, but they would still be states, not Republics. The US would just have up to 53 states instead of 50. At least 5 states now have land that was claimed by the Republic of Texas and were part of the original settlement grant given to Moses Austin by the King of Spain.

    Conservatives threaten government officials and somehow I'm illogical for pointing it out

    Conservatives! Totally fact free all the time.
