    The Texas legislature only meets for a couple of months every other year. They are currently in session so from a timing perspective now is a good time for all of the ban talk coming from the feds as the Texas legislature is well positioned to respond.

    The state rep proposing this is smart enough to know that it will undoubtedly receive a legal challenge which he welcomes because,

    I e-mailed my rep asking him to support this legislation and also e-mailed Rep. Steve Toth, who introduced it, to thank him for doing so.

    If you're from TX use this link to send a letter to your state officials. http://www.congress.org/congressorg/issues/alert/?alertid=61115481&type=ML
    Citing state constitutional guarantees for RKBA and promises of support for this show of resistance to proposed federal bans violating the state laws will help garner support for the idea.

    So far I think only Texas and Wyoming have such bills on the table.
    I wish a few other strong gun rights states would get off their duffs and join in!

    I think it was Montana did the first one but it was a little different than Wyoming's proposed. Hope they go through. Even if they meet resistance.

    Just read of MY assemblyman in NJ proposing 5 round magazine limits. TX sounds good and I won't bring any dam-yankee politics with me.

    Wow, high road, right there.

    Not the death penalty because that pushes 'proverbial line in the sand' to 'revolt.'
