On February 12, the city council of League City, Texas passed Resolution No. 2013 designed to protect and defend the right to keep and bear arms by a vote of 7 to 1. The resolution was introduced by councilwoman Heidi Thiess and the one opposition vote was casted by councilman Dennis O’Keefe.
The resolution cited from the U.S. Constitution the Second, Ninth and Tenth Amendments as justification for their resolution. The League City Council also sourced the Texas Constitution, Article I: Section 23a which states, “Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the state.”
The resolution is also very specific detailing that any law is not made in pursuance of the Constitution is invalid in the State of Texas and will be considered null and void in their city.Details
