Texas Says No Thanks to Gun Control

A Texas Legislator has introduced House Bill 928 that prohibits state and local law enforcement from enforcing federal law that regulate firearms and accessories. The text reads:

An agencyof this state or a political subdivision of this state, and a law enforcementofficer or other person employed by an agency of this state or a politicalsubdivision of this state, may not contract with or in any other manner provideassistance to a federal agency or official with respect to the enforcement of afederal statute, order, rule, or regulation purporting to regulate a firearm, afirearm accessory, or firearm ammunition that remains exclusively within theborders of this state if the statute, order, rule, or regulationimposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity orsize limitation or a registration requirement, that does not exist under thelaws of this state.

I'll follow and keep all apprised of the bill's progress.

It just makes sense seeing the DOJ sued AZ for enforcing Fed. Immigration law.
Now we just need some gun manufacturers here in TX to start selling some SBR's to Texans without the stamp.

Texas Lt Governor

Texas Legislature will be signaling its disapproval of the Obama administration.

“I am very concerned about the federal government's rapid expansion and attempts to impose its will on the states,” Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said in a prepared statement supporting [Sen. Donna] Campbell's constitutional amendment. “Here in Texas, we will never concede our freedom to Washington.”

Thank goodness for Texas! I really feel bad for the law-abiding folks in restricted states who can't enjoy the same freedoms we do.

Maybe of enough freedom loving Americans vote with their feet and move themselves and their businesses there, the increased tax base will offset lost federal "assistance".

I believe it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past time to start abstaining from the .GOV tit in all states. But, like a diet ... those first few days are really tough.

Let's see how it works out if we stop sending our money to Washington.

We'll just keep our money and Washington can keep "their" money.
We'll take care of our own roads.


Wouldn't it be cool seeing all the Washington politicians, government workers and illegal aliens on food stamps.


And my goodness, obama couldn't take a dozen 10 million dollar taxpayer paid vacations a year.

Good deal. I wrote my state house rep today, as well as Perry and Dewhurst to let them know I support this.


I suggest the rest of you proud Texans do the same if you get the chance today.

No worries. We always have several billion dollars surplus. I think schools can work with that.
And we don't need roads, we have trucks

The governor of Mississippi has introduced virtually identical legislation.

I've seen NY, MA, CA, IL infect freedom loving states and turn it from red to blue. Why don't we, lovers of freedom, do the same thing. Take back CA. Edge out the communists, not by violence but by presence and votes. We need to embrace our communist brethren and show them the light of taking responsibility for your life and actions. Be Tom Sawyer about it.

I'm not running to a free state. I'm running to a warm state and bring freedom with me.

Couldn't Texas just do a mass deputization for all the people that want to own Federally restricted guns?

I am saying is there any reason hypothetically why TX couldn't just offer a SPECIAL SUBCLASS of badge for the express purpose of allowing people to own basically anything the federal government does not allow without tax stamp?

Uhm, maybe Congress and the "Occupied States" could learn something. El Paso is just one river away from one of the most dangerous cities in the world which also has horrific strict gun control.

It's larger than most. 4:20 PM, 5 February, and it's 73 degrees outside.



Some day, I'll be able to head north in the summer. Till then, I'm happy to be here, even in the summer.

Shocking. In Texas, you say. Really?

Dude, it's Texas. Currently, the last bastion of freedom in the United States. Of course they aren't going for gun control. Well, almost: grip, sight alignment, trigger control, That is about it.

But, then, again, when Obama was elected, the Texas legislature had a bill that died in commitee to succeed from the Nation.

Welcome to Texas.
