Hi All,

State Rep. Steve Toth is standing up for our 2A rights and needs our support!

 

Named the "Firearms Protection Act," the bill would make "any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state's boundaries" and most notably "anyone trying to enforce a federal gun ban could face felony charges under the proposal."

"We can no longer depend on the Federal Government and this Administration to uphold a Constitution that they no longer believe in," Toth said in a release. "The liberties of the People of Texas and the sovereignty of our State are too important to just let the Federal Government take them away."

 

CALL YOUR LEGISLATOR TO SUPPORT THIS BILL!!

I live in Dallas and am surrounded by Democrats, and I still called them.  My lone Republican (Sen, John Carona) gave me crap about Federal trumps all state laws and he doesn't want to put law enforcement in an uncomfortable position.  Since I studied the Constitution as a Political Science major, I informed him:

  • Executive orders can not be used against the Bill of Rights;
  • The 2A reads the Federal Government "shall not infringe';
  • The Federal Government was created by the states (with extremely limited powers), not the other way around;
  • In WWII, the Federal Govt allowed the internment (jailing) of all Japanese Americans for fear they may be spies.  If similar legislation were to be passed Federally again, would he sit by idly and say "well, it's the Federal Gov't and they can do what ever they want?"
  • He clearly needs to read the Constitution for the first time in his life.

 

Again call your * * STATE * * legislators to support this bill. Don't know who they are?  Here is a link to find them: http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/Home.aspx
