Texas House Blocks Federal Gun Control 102-31

In a major move against all forms of federal gun control, the Texas State House has placed its stamp of approval on a new bill which blocks federal gun control legislation from affecting the state itself.

texas-house-federal-gun-controlIntroduced by Representative Matthew Krause, House Bill 928 is among the many pro-Second Amendment pieces of legislation that have either been passed or are currently going through the legal system around the nation. In fact, an entire website has been created to show the states that have introduced or passed legislation blocking federal forms of gun control.

The final vote count was 102-31.

Originally created in Montana, it all started with legislation known as The Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) — a bill that blocks the federal government from altering gun laws inside the states themselves.

As for House Bill 928, which received an overwhelming amount of support from both sides of the two party system, it restricts the feds from coming in and regulating everything from firearms to firearm accessories. A selection from the bill itself specifies how state employees may not aid federal officials in the confiscation of any firearm-related items:

“An agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state, and a law enforcement officer or other person employed by an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state, may not contract with or in any other manner provide assistance to a federal agency or official with respect to the enforcement of a federal statute, order, rule, or regulation purporting to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation or a registration requirement, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”

The fact of the matter is that this legislation and similar bills are receiving massive support from both sides of the political spectrum, because the reality behind the entire media-driven issue of gun control is quickly coming out. We’ve even seen this with a recent Gallup poll, which shows that only 4% of the United States population (down 2% from the prior months) believe that gun control is a major issue that we face today. To put that figure into perspective, a much greater 24% were concerned with the horrible state of the economy.

The public understand that a whopping 2.5 times more United States citizens are killed in the ‘gun free zone’ of Chicago than overseas in the Afghanistan war zone, and they are putting the puzzle pieces together. Gun freedom has nothing to do with left vs. right, Democrat vs. Republican. Instead, it’s about the people and the control of the people. And more and more citizens are becoming aware of this on a daily basis.

If you live in Texas, contact your Senator and let them know you want them to support House Bill 928.

  1. For many people, it's easier to buy a gun than it is to vote, just read http://www.gunsafesnow.com/biometricsafes.aspx . Obama just spoke extemporaneously, and he was angry as I have ever seen him in public. He states that we must remember those who voted against this and let them know that if they continue blocking this sort of legislation, they will not be reelected.

  2. Wow, although this seems like a huge change I'm afraid I don't think this is going to change things much

  3. I appreciate a lot this great and quality post! I like guns a lot and I've worked in the army for ten years. Now I am working in the police department and I am having a professional gun. Recently I've bought some useful Remington accessories for it and I am very satisfied of it.

  4. I only have one question, and I need to know this for a paper that I'm currently writing: do the U.S. Military troops use Leupold scopes or are they strictly for special troops? I have a friend who fought in Afghanistan, but he refuses to speak about it.

  8. I like this article and it makes me think about it more seriously and now i would like to sahre my ideas and opinion with other people also. thank you so much for this article

  9. This is a very interesting and useful post! I am having a friend who lives in Texas and he has a big collection of guns. This year on his birthday I've bought some gun accessories from GunProPlus and he liked it a lot.

  10. I find this a very good thing because I don't consider right the feds to regulate everything including firearms and firearms accessories. I also have a gun and I always keep it in a case bought from CasesByPelican.com.

  11. my coments don't show up

  12. Federal government has responsibility and we help the students in writing and reading articles and web content while we accommodate the students with passage of time. Our priority should be education promotion over the internet and world.

  13. When it comes to gun control you should take extra care because there is a small difference between people who are having guns for their safety and people who are having them to do harm to others. You can check http://www.beltwaygunandpawn.com/ if you want to learn more about guns and how you can use them between the limits of the law.

  14. “An agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state, and a law enforcement officer or other person employed by an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state, may not contract with or in any other manner provide assistance to a federal agency or official with respect to the enforcement of a federal statute, order, rule, or regulation purporting to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation or a registration requirement, that does not exist under the laws of this state.” – WOW

  15. There are many people who own arms and unfortunately a big part of them are using them in order to commit criminal acts. The federal gun control would be very useful as in this way not anyone could obtain a gun permit. Moreover there are certain guns that require a special training as you may read on http://www.safirearmsinstruction.com/mission-stat… and not anyone is allowed to have it.
