West Texas Pivot: Amarillo Mayor Signs Letter Calling for More Gun Control

Amarillo, located in the Texas Panhandle, is a place where cowboys still roam, a place where ranchers with handguns on their hips and rifles in their trucks drive across flat land to break ice before sunrise so cattle can have water to drink.

It is now also a city tied to the latest in-state gun control push via Mayor Nelson.

Texas Tribune reporter Joshua Fechter listed the gun controls sought by the mayors who signed the letter to Abbott. Those controls include universal background checks, red flag laws, and raising the age to buy an “assault weapon” to 21.

California has a red flag law. They also have universal background checks and a minimum purchase age of 21 for semiautomatic rifles. (The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled the minimum purchase age unconstitutional on May 11, 2022, but the law had been on the books in California for two years.)

Despite these and numerous other gun controls, California was the number one state for “active shooter incidents” in 2021.
