    Texas Proposal: JAIL Any Federal Officials Trying to Enforce New Gun Restrictions in

    Think that will work I think its classic grandiose grandstanding for his constituency



    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.


    Republican Rep. Steve Toth says 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 told 1200 WOAI's Joe Pags Tuesday. He says his bill would make attempting to enforce a federal gun ban in Texas punishable by a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison.

    Supremacy Clause would certainly come into play with a Federal Law from Congress (not gonna happen anyway). Would be interesting to see what impact that this would have on a Presidential Executive Order that really isn't covered in the Constitution at all. If they'd dump the "Federal Law" aspect out of the legislation and just left "Executive Order," there may be some teeth to this after all.

    Just more grandstanding. He must be up for re-election. All the Feds would have to do is cut off all Fed money to the state. Next time Texas burns and the Gov. cuts fire fighting money all the Fed would have to do is say burn, no money. Also I think Fed law out weighs State laws on things like this. Washington State and Co. passed pot laws but they know the Feds can step in if they wanted too.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Well I don't know if it was an executive order or not but this administration arbitrarily demanded that licensed dealers hand over the names and addresses of any and all buyers of more than one firearm just over a year ago. What ATF is doing with that IDK but I'm guessing dealers are complying or they'd be out of business. This arbitrary rule only applied to dealers in TX, NM, AZ and CA. Guess we don't care if Chicago street gangs get their guns through straw purchases - NY either.

    I'd be delighted if all of you guys moved to Texas.
