RECORD Number of Gun Control Bills Pre-Filed in Texas

After Americans set a historic record for gun purchases in 2020, 2021 could very well be the year of gun control — at least in Texas.

Gun control activists in Texas funded by New York billionaire and failed presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg set a record of their own on the first day of pre-filing for the first 2021 session. Now, the docket for the Texas Legislature is stacked with a myriad of unconstitutional bills.

House Bill 52 and House Bill 245, for example, would ban the private sale of firearms at gun shows. But, this just scratches the surface. According to the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, House Bill 118 would also ban the transfer of firearms between family and friends, and would require FFLs to process transactions pending government approval and an undetermined fee.

Keep in mind that this is the state where bills like this should never see the light of day. Then again, this is also the state that gave us another failed presidential candidate in Democrat Beto O’Rourke — who almost exclusively campaigned on gun grabbing.

Joe Biden, whom the media has declared the President-elect, has stated that he would enlist O’Rourke as a sort of gun czar to lead the effort on gun control and confiscation.

There are a number of other notable bills introduced with the express purpose of effectively erasing the Second Amendment in Texas. These include a reversal on campus carry, raising the minimum age for the legal purchase of rifles, and a ban on standard capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

And yes — gun control activists are also trying to bring California-style “red flag laws” to Texas as well.

Considering all of this, it’s no wonder why Americans scooped up a whopping 17 million guns in 2020 alone. Analysts have determined that many of these sales went to first-time buyers amid social unrest and coronavirus fears. The Guardian reports that 2020’s gun sales eclipsed 2016, the last year to set a record — citing Hillary Clinton’s gun control proposals.

This news underscores the uncomfortable reality that Texas is trending in a blue direction politically, and the reason why is no secret. The past several years have seen a record number of Californians moving to other states to escape the state’s high taxes and plummeting living standards. Unfortunately, they continue voting as if they’re still in California. Texas is just the most notable victim of this trend.

As we move into the next phase of our history, gun owners must get politically active. We cannot afford to allow our only remaining Second Amendment bastions be surrendered to the gun grabbing mob.

  1. Not the most politically intelligent person on the planet but in the years I have been on this planet I still marvel at the way these politicians from the 1700s were able to write a Constitution and Bill of Rights that is clear, concise and relevant 245 years later. The three branches of government so no one section could run roughshod on our Country, the checks and balances built in-these men and women were indeed the futurists of their time, the AMERICANS that set forth the pattern of our government so freedom would reign for the present and future and no government could take those freedoms away. Texas was long the bastion of Freedom from the Alamo through present day. Run those Californians back to the west and hope for the earthquake that makes ocean beaches in Arizona and Nevada. If the Eastern Oregon counties can look into joining Idaho and seceding from Oregon, perhaps we, as a country, need to reevaluate our present situation.
    LET FREEDOM RING!!

  2. First thing all Socialist/Communist do is remove all weapons so no one can fight back. Then they can do what ever they want [like Hitler]

  3. The similarities of the 1938 Nazi Weapons Law, the 1968 U.S. Gun Control Act, and New Jersey Gun Control laws are similar, if not the same:

    1938 Nazi Weapons Law:

    1. Targeted ordinary citizen gun owners,
    manufacturers, and dealers, rather than
    criminals.

    2. Required any private person to prove
    himself fine/“reliable” before being
    “allowed” to own a firearm.

    3. Presumed that gun ownership was a
    government-granted privilege, not a right.

    4. Gave the government unrestricted power to
    decide what kinds of firearms could or could
    not be owned by citizens. Defines “hunting
    weapons” as a special class.

    5. Forced all firearms manufacturers and dealers
    to obtain a government license.

    6. Required all firearms dealers to record all sales
    and to turn over those records if the business
    closes. Allowed for police inspection of records.

    7. Required all firearms to bear a serial number
    and maker’s or dealer’s mark.

    8. Required all gun owners to identify where all
    firearms were in the house to allow for police
    or government officers to enter home and go
    right to the location of the firearms.
    New law (A-3676) would require police/government
    inspection of gun owner’s residence and where firearms
    will be located.

    New Jersey Gun Control Laws N.J.S.A. 2C:39-1 et seq. , N.J.S.A. 2C:58-1 et seq. & 1968 U.S. Gun Control Act

    1. Targets ordinary citizen gun owners, manufacturers,
    and dealers, rather than criminals.

    2. Requires the citizen to declare, under penalty of
    and/or imprisonment that s/he is not barred under
    the law from acquiring a firearm.

    3. Presumes that gun ownership is a government-
    granted privilege, regulated under the interstate
    commerce clause, not a right.

    4. Gives government the power to decide what kinds
    of firearms can or cannot be owned by citizens.
    Introduced the “sporting purposes” test that was
    not defined either by law or regulation.

    5. Forces all firearms manufacturers and dealers to
    obtain a federal license.

    6. Requires all firearms dealers to record all sales and
    to turn over those records if the business closes.
    allows for inspection of records by the Treasury
    Department’s Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
    Division. The U.S. and N.J. laws specify that the buyer
    of the firearm list his race.

    7. Requires all firearms to bear a serial number and
    maker’s mark.

    8. Possible new law (A-3676) would require police/government
    inspection of gun owner’s residence and where firearms
    will be located.

    Gun Control has killed over 170 MILLION people worldwide through “democide”

    Over 170 MILLION people have been killed by their governments instituting gun control for public “safety” purposes. Gun control is “democide”. Government is not friendly to its own people. The Soviet Union, Red China and Nazi Germany combined killed approximately 100 Million between them. Whereever gun control has been exercised, government invariably starts eradicating its own people through genocides. See the DVD Innocents Betrayed that can be purchased from the Jews for Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jfpo.org, website.

    U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security says AR-15s “personal defense weapons”

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 NATO-caliber “personal defense weapons”. These are the improperly designated “assault rifles” known as AR-15s. The DHS is asking for “select fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense in close quarters”. The DHS is asking for magazines that have a capacity to hold 30 rounds of NATO rounds. If the DHS is considering these as “personal defense weapons”, why is the State of New Jersey seeking to deprive law-abiding residents of the same “personal self-defense weapons”? Why is a semi-automatic rifle and a 30-round magazine unacceptable for a civilian’s “personal defense”?

  4. The 2nd Amendment is not a suggestion it is a mandate not to be violated, and yes the Nazi gun laws of 1938 were brought here from the Nuremberg trials by one of our early Commies, to become the 1968 gun laws. If they want your guns, let them advance through a hail of lead to take them; their disregard for the law of the land requires your disregard of their whims of power.

  5. I AM A NATIVE BORN tEXAN DO NOT OWN A GUN but am a stong 2nd amendment rights supported wish all those californian and other Democratic voters would go back or wake up to thr realization that they are supporting what destroyed their last state. will fight against any supporter of these bills

  6. The U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968 is almost word for word of the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938. To control the population…they must first disarm the people. After that…it becomes easy.
