Establishment Senator in Texas Guts Pro-Gun Bill

Published

Lone Star Gun Rights reports that an establishment Republican in the Texas Senate is gutting a pro-gun bill.

Earlier in May, the Texas House passed HB 1177, a bill that allows the carry of a handgun without a license during a disaster declaration.

In an email to its members, LSGR Senior Editor Derek Wills chimed in on this bill:

It was crumbs of freedom being returned to us, but certain Senators felt that those crumbs were too much.

Senator Joan Huffman, whose Senate District overlaps with Constitutional Cary-killer Dennis Bonnen’s district, amended the bill to just allow for 48 hours of carry without a license. According to Wills, Huffman “decided that 168 hours was too long for someone evacuating a disaster area to carry without the State-issued permission slip.”

Wills reveals that it is too late to have Huffman’s amendment reversed. If passed, Wills contends that this bill “will still be a tiny crumb returned to us, but take that for what it is.”

2019 has been a disappointing year for Second Amendment supporters in Texas. With House Speaker Dennis Bonnen killing Constitutional Carry, 2021 will be the earliest that this law could be passed.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
