Texas lawmaker to introduce a “Firearms Protection Act”

Last week Wyoming lawmakers proposed a “Firearms Protection Act” which would make it a felony for a federal agent to come into Wyoming and try to enforce certain potential bans that it is believed Barack Obama and the Democrats have planned in the very near future.

Today Texas announced it would follow Wyoming’s lead and also introduce a “Firearms Protection Act” which, if I am reading this article correctly, would actually oppose ANY new gun or magazine bans or restrictions–taking it even one step further than the Wyoming plan–while also making it a felony for a federal agent to enforce the upcoming bans.

This law will make “any federal law banning semi-automatic handguns or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries.”

Let’s not kid ourselves here; we all know how well nullification works because it has been tried once before to disastrous results and in the end these laws will be found to be in violation of the constitution by the Supreme Court under the supremacy clause:

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

But that does not mean that states shouldn’t move forward with this line of defense because we need people to stand up and voice exactly how opposed we are to this upcoming assault on the second amendment and this certainly helps to make our position known. This  must be done by the people and by the states because as we have seen time and time again, the ruling class, elitist, establishment Republicans in the federal government will simply roll over and play dead when push comes to shove and give Barack Obama exactly what he wants.

To quote Barack Obama; we are the ones that we have been waiting for.

    Dear friend,

    I am the pastor of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Syracuse…I am outraged for what is happening concerning the 2nd Amendment…and especially what happened here in NEW YORK.

    If you would like- please feel free to post this small essay to your blog…consider it a small contribution. I hope other pastors “gird up their loins” and “man up.”

    God bless you,

    The Rev. Juan C. Rivera

      Thanks Rev. It needed to be said! We all need to man up! Great article you wrote! Keep us informed on the struggle for freedom in NY. Thanks! You encourage me and thousands more.

  2. In the first place I agree with what WY and TX are proposing, I hope AZ follows the same path. Secondly I feel as if we are going down the wrong path by trying to openly protect our gun rights. It should not be just about gun rights. More importantly it is about the Constitution. obama is attacking the Constitution at every level. What part of the Constitution will he attack next, and then next after that until he just says F**K it and declares the Constitution as being void and proclaims himself as ruler supreme. I think a lot more people would identify with Constitutional rights than with the 2nd amendment rights. So instead of proclaiming he is trying to take away our 2nd amendment rights , we should say he is trying to take away our Constitutional rights and the reason he is attacking the 2nd amendment first, is because it is the biggest threat to him and gets in the way of his overall plan.
