State Rep. Steve Toth files Firearms Protection Act

From PatDollard.com, we learn that State Rep. Steve Toth (R-The Woodlands) intends to file legislation designed to protect the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution for Texans:
The “Firearms Protection Act” bill would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries. 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. 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. The overreach of the federal administrations executive orders that are do not align with the Constitution, are not very popular here in Texas,” said Toth.

Along with Wyoming, Texas will lead the country in continuing to stand for the sovereignty to run Texas as Texans see fit while exercising the Bill of Rights Amendments 2& 10 to “prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers … [to] extending the ground of public confidence in the Government.”

Rep. Toth recently discussed his prospective bill with Lubbock talk radio host Chad Hasty on KFYO. You can listen to the audio at the link.
