As to Obama’s new gun control proposals…Is it “regulation” or “infringement” to make ammunition for weapons extremely difficult to obtain or afford? Does not any effort to do so change handguns into expensive hammers and rifles into decorations over a mantle? If a weapon owner cannot obtain ammunition for his weapon, is his right to keep and bear arms infringed? Is it “regulation” or “infringement” to unreasonably limit the size of the magazine or to require only single shot weapons be available to citizens?
Now along with Texas & Wyoming …South Carolina Bill Would Nullify all Presidential Executive Orders Against the Right to Keep and Bear Arms
Texas state representative Steve Toth is filing legislation for a “Firearms Protection Act” similar to that which we saw in Wyoming.
This law will make “any federal law banning semi-automatic handguns or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries.”
Not only will this put Texas shoulder-to-shoulder with Wyoming in making it a felony for anyone–including federal agents–to try to enforce new gun control, but according to the Tenth Amendment Center it is in perfect harmony with the actions of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, “who has already filed over twenty-three lawsuits against the federal government.”
More good news–representative Toth is newly elected, which means he isn’t wasting any time. He is taking it to the gun-grabbers instead of sitting back to see what happens next.
Toth puts it this way: “We can no longer depend on the Federal Government and this Administration to uphold a Constitution they no longer believe in.”
The message is simple: “Don’t Mess With Texas,” and particularly, with Texas’ gun laws.
