Newscast Media AUSTIN, TexasThis headline has been brought to my attention after the Drudge Report posted it on their Web site. It has to do with a new proposal called the Firearms Protection Act, being introduced by a Texas lawmaker. The Act makes any federal laws that may be passed by Congress or imposed by Presidential order which would ban or restrict ownership of semi-automatic firearms or limit the size of gun magazines, illegal in the State of Texas.


On January 14, Newscast Media presented a two-part argument based on a recent Supreme Court decision showing why banning any modern firearm would be a violation of the Constitution's Second Amendment. (pop-up)


According to a January 15, article linked by the Drudge Report, Republican Rep. Steve Toth says his measure also calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce any new gun restriction rule in the state. 

"If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution. The bill would make attempting to enforce a federal gun ban in Texas punishable by a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison," Toth said. The full article can be read here. (pop-up)
