there is validity on some level to the mentality of a texan who wants a gun to protect himself
texas is a big place. depending on where you live you might be hours away from police assistance, medical care, etc. in those situations i'd appreciate the right to have a gun, and to use it if i had to.
it gets abused, though, for sure. this bloke with the camera and the gun is evidence of that. i'm just making a judgement based off of the video, but that guy had an itchy trigger finger, IMO. he wanted trouble, and he went looking for it.
