So, if a Tesla owner drives through Tex-a$$, will the T-Rangers and Highway Patrol "shoot" them or "hang" them?

Interesting. Tesla is really impressing me. Not trying to buy lobbyists, but their goals and efforts to make their vehicles work.

That's only to *sell* them in Texas. I've seen one here in my small town. I'm sure there are more in the cities. You just have to buy from out of state.

Stupid politics, but only a minor inconvenience for buyers.

Since Chrylser-Fiat has the slogan: "...Imported from Detroit..."

maybe, Tesla can use the slogans: "...Imported into Texas..." or "...Imported from California..."
