Feds Enforcing Executive Orders Against 2nd Amendment In Texas Could Face $50,000 Fine And 5 Years In Prison

 

rangerTexas legislation is being filed in the state house that would create severe consequences for any federal agent enforcing unlawful executive orders. The legislation is crafted to protect 2nd Amendment rights of Texas citizens.

The legislation sides with Americans and their rights to own semi-automatic firearms and magazines that can accomodate more than 7 rounds of hand loaded ammunition.

Details.

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.

  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.

As the article mentions, loyalists will argue the supremacy clause in defense of the feds. This argument is flawed for executive action, however, because the 2nd Amendment is the supreme law of the land. Texas is simply looking to enforce the supreme federal law of the land and protect the rights guaranteed by it for citizens of Texas.

  • John A. Rawlings

    If Obama is really serious about bans against AR15′s , high capacity clips, firearms in general, lets challenge him to disarm his secret service agents and give them nightsticks. Let’s see how well it works for him and the rest of his liberal cronies. He ought to step up to the plate and make this concession, show the people what he and his liberal ass buddies are made of!

    In regards to the 2nd Amendment, then what is meant by “well regulated”? Why is this part being ignored?

  • John Doe

    Any educated person knows federal law trumps state law. All the feds have to do is create a counter law to this and it is null and void.
