Texas Proposal

17 Jan

JAIL Any Federal Officials Trying to Enforce New Gun Restrictions in the State.

Republican Rep. Steve Toth, a Texas lawmaker says he plans to file the Firearms Protection Act, which would make any federal laws that may be passed by Congress or imposed by Presidential order which would ban or restrict ownership of semi-automatic firearms or limit the size of gun magazines illegal in the state, 1200 WOAI news reports.

His measure also calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce the rule in the state.

“If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution”

Toth says he will file his measure after speaking with the state’s Republican Attorney General, Greg Abbott, who has already vowed to fight any federal measures which call for restrictions on weapons possession.  Toth concedes that he would welcome a legal fight over his proposals.

“At some point there needs to be a showdown between the states and the federal government over the Supremacy Clause”

    Why would you do that to thieves and rapists? Cruel and unusual punishment.

      Wildflower they wouldn’t last two minutes there. I haven’t seen the facillity but I’m not sure the Obama Waste Water Treatment Plant could contain all the bodies!

      Besides, the EPA would be after the Mayor and Council for polluting the water!

      No thanks. You are right. We’ll just leave them with the rapists, murderers, and thieves. Even though they will feel right at home with each other.

        They will have a hard “row to hoe” in Texas! This took place at the Battle of the Wilderness May 6, 1864, when General Lee’s lines were in danger of being overrun.

        At the Widow Catherine Tapp’s farmhouse, the Texas Brigade (3 Texas Regiments and 1 Arkansas Regiment), under the command of General John Gregg, filed passed an overly excited Robert E. Lee. “Who are you my boys?” he asked. “Texas boys!” they replied. Lee waved his hat in the air and yelled, “Hurrah for Texas! Texans always move them!”

        If I can make it over there by God, we’re going to fight with the Texans.
