Texas bound

Fairfax, VA

#1 Jan 15, 2013
A Texas lawmaker says he plans to file the Firearms Protection Act, which would make 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, 1200 WOAI news reports.



Republican Rep. Steve Toth says his measure also calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce the 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," Toth told 1200 WOAI's Joe Pags Tuesday. He says his 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 says he will file his measure after speaking with the state's Republican Attorney General, Greg Abbott, who has already vowed to fight any federal measures which call for restrictions on weapons possession.



Toth concedes that he would welcome a legal fight over his proposals.



"At some point there needs to be a showdown between the states and the federal government over the Supremacy Clause," he said.



The Supremacy Clause is the portion of the Constitution which declares that federal laws and statutes are 'the supreme law of the land.'



"It is our responsibility to push back when those laws are infringed by King Obama," Toth said.



Texas is the second state to propose a measure to shield the state from the impact of any gun possession restrictions imposed by Congress or by Presidential order. A similar measure was introduced in Wyoming last week.

Let the revolution start. It is way past time. Even the "Republicans" are throwing in the towel instead of holding their own. Only Tea Party representives are representing the taxpayers.

Lol. If you don't care then what's the fuss? And believe me, we all know you don't care what anyone thinks if they don't agree with you. That's what your party stands for. The exclusion of all others for your own benefit. You can't stand people who aren't like you. You're a stereotypical republican. Honey? You want to suck my rooster? Secretly gay are you? Just another thing republicans are known for. I haven't told you to stfu no matter how much I disagree with you. That's your problem. You want those of us who aren't like you to go away. Guess what? There are more of me than there are you. I would so cuddle the sh!t out of you right now!!!! I have a little wood! You're intelligent quips are such a turn on!!!!

Wrong. President Obama won the electoral college and the popular vote. He also won the home states of both of his Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates.

Oh, and the "Feds" will not be arrested in any state. Local Sheriffs and State Politicians may now be pandering to their voting populous with this anti-gun legislation stage show, but let the Feds withhold federal tax dollars from the state and counties refusing to enforce laws and you'll see a sudden change in their resolve.

Everyone file exempt or claim 10 dependents then refuse to file a tax return. They can't jail everyone.

They can't jail everyone. You're right. But owing taxes will prevent you from getting any kind of a loan, financial aid for college, etc. Are you going to pay local tax? Property tax? Have fun getting your car tags renewed without a receipt for property tax! You should really think things through before you make your self look stupid again.

Really well then lets all just follow along like lambs to slaughter while our current potus destroys the constitutional republic we know as America. If I'm not paying taxes then I'm certainly not going to worry about renewing my tags! You sound like you think it would take a year or more for this to effect a change? The time to file taxes is here now and if enough people would refuse to pay, it would not take long for a change to come about. But of course those of you who will be getting a refund instead of paying when you file should certainly file and get all you can! Are you concerned with student loans or financial aid? I'm not, and I have more than enough squirreled away to take care of myself without need of a bank loan anytime soon. So yeah umm might better think some more on this...

Was that Rush's catch phrase or teaching point today? You recite it, believing every word, with such enthusiasm. But know one thing, you'll pay your taxes and Obama is your rightfully, legally elected President.

Lmao. Ok don't pay then! It's going to be funny when they take your "savings". Which they have every right to do. You're a funny little fella. Your horse lost this race. Deal with it and quit acting like a child who isn't going to pick his toys up because mommy didn't give you a cookie. You're blowing smoke and will never not pay your taxes. Keep on blaming the government for your problems! Hahaha. You sound like a black person. Good going!
