ADDITIONAL BILL INFORMATION
Texas House Bill 928 would require all agencies of the state – and local governments – to refuse to enforce or assist in the enforcement of a vast majority of federal gun laws, including those already on the books. As Judge Andrew Napolitano has said recently, such widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce” (video here)
Surprisingly, an amendment was added in committee that actually made the bill stronger. It now includes a penalty for any local government which refuses to follow the proposed law. This includes a loss of state grant funding and the ability of individual Texans to file a complaint with the Attorney General against the local government violating their rights.
