Bill To Decriminalize Firearm Suppressors in Texas Passes Out of Committee

Published

on

The Tenth Amendment Center reports that last week a Texas House committee passed a bill that decriminalizes firearm sound suppressors under state law.

State Representative Tom Oliverson introduced House Bill 2286 on February 25, 2019.

Mike Maharrey details what this bill would do:

Under the proposed law, state agencies could not adopt any rule, order, ordinance, or policy to enforce a federal statute, order, rule, or regulation that purports to regulate a firearm suppressor that does not exist under the laws the state. It would also repeal a provision of state law making it an offense to possess, manufacture, transport, repair or sell a firearm suppressor unless it is registered by the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

On April 10, the House State Affairs Committee passed HB 2286 unanimously by a 11-0 vote.

If passed, HB 2286 would discontinue all state regulation of firearm suppressors.

Contrary to media portrayals, suppressors only muffle the sound guns make. They do not make guns go silent.

The National Firearms Act was the first comprehensive piece of legislation that regulated these so-called “silencers”.

Maharrey notes that the “feds charge a $200 tax on the purchase of the devices. Buying one also requires months-long waits after filing extensive paperwork with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.”

This repeal of state suppressor restrictions in Texas would not change the federal law on the books, nor would it put a stop to federal enforcement. Maharrey points out that it “would remove a layer of law hindering access to these harmless devices.”

Texas grassroots activist Tom Glass added,“It would not stop feds from attempting to enforce, but at least it would get Texas law right.”

With the federal government failing to move the needle on gun policy, many states and local political entities have taken policy matters into their own hands.

Liberty Conservative News reported on various counties in Colorado and New Mexico that are refusing to enforce their state’s gun control laws.

Although the 2019 session of the Texas State Legislature is approaching its end, bills like HB 2286 represent a new avenue pro-gun organizations are taking to expand gun rights.

Woke Leftists Upset Over Christian Organzation Setting Up Hospital for Coronavirus Patients

Published

on

Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable Christian organization that helps the poor and sick all over the world, has setup a temporary tent hopsital in New York City.

Most see this as an all around positive, but not radical LGBTQ activists and their allies.

Some Leftists in New York have complained of the organization’s traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality. They claim to believe that Samaritan’s Purse might treat LGBTQ patients with less consideration or care.

This nonsensical narrative reached Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s office, who has also now expressed concern. DeBlasio said,

I said immediately to my team that we had to find out ­exactly what was happening. Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values [of] New York City?

We’re going to send people over from [my] office to monitor. I’m very concerned to make sure this is done right. But if it is done right, of course, we need all the help we can get.

Samaritan’s Purse and its workers have done everything from risking their lives to serve Ebola patients in Africa to helping after tornadoes here in the states. They have also already been dealing with coronavirus in Italy, giving them much needed experience.

They are exactly who you want to show up in a time like this. The combination of experience, compassion, and dedication they have is very hard to match.

And no, they do not discrimate based on sexuality. They never have and there is no indication they ever will.

To suggest that they need to be monitored or that New York should be worried about their presense is not only unwarranted, it’s insulting.

DeBlasio is taking advantage of Samaritan’s Purse because he knows they, unlike him, are not utter degenerates. He knows that Samaritan’s Purse will do everything they can to help, despite knowing they are hated by the Mayor and his ilk.

This whole incident shows that Bill DeBlasio is a weak effiminate man who is more concerned with his public imagine than saving lives. He will accept the help, but insult those helpers, all while pretending he has displayed some sort of virtue.

This is outright bigotry, disguised with smooth talk.
