The regular Texas state legislative session is over. Unfortunately, the “come and take it” bill on federal firearms “laws” (HB928) was held up in the senate and did not pass. But, representative Krause has refiled the legislation for the special session – and it’s up to Rick Perry to help move the bill forward.
House Bill 15, the new HB928, is Texas’s Second Amendment Preservation Act. The only way to get HB15 to move forward is to get Governor Perry to add the bill to the special session – by having him bring all gun related legislation up for consideration under the Special Session. Otherwise, the 2nd Amendment Preservation act is dead for this year.
HB928, had huge grassroots support, and was killed by a legislator last minute. The Tenth Amendment Center needs your help right now on HB15. Show your grassroots support for the right to keep and bear arms, and support to stop the federal government from infringing on that right. Help move HB15 forward!
ACTION ITEMS for Texas HB15
