ADDITIONAL BILL INFORMATION
Texas House Bill 149, The Liberty Preservation Act to nullify NDAA “indefinite detention,” is one of the strongest bills in the country in response to that unconstitutional federal act. It renders that claimed federal power as unconstitutional, null, and void within the state of Texas. And, it provides for criminal charges for anyone in violation of HB149 should it become law.
This is a Texas-sized bill that could influence the entire country. Learn more here.
Texas House Bill 928, is a short but very far-reaching bill to require the state of Texas and all local government to refuse to comply with or enforce a vast majority of federal gun laws, orders, rules and regulations. It applies to those issued or passed in the past, present or future, providing a strong stand in Texas not just against new proposals, but the status quo.
As Judge Andrew Napolitano has said recently, such widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce” (video here)
