Texas House Bill 928, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, had a hearing in the House Federalism committee, but has yet to be voted on. This is an extremely important bill to help protect the right to keep and bear arms. If any state should be passing this legislation, it should be Texas.
The Tenth Amendment Center requests your immediate help to encouraging the Committee to step up and pass this bill on.

ADDITIONAL BILL INFORMATION
Texas House Bill 928, is a short but very comprehensive 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)
