House Bill 422 (HB422) would require that the state of Texas refuse to enforce almost all federal gun control measures enacted at anytime – past, present or future. House Bill 413 (HB413) declares all federal restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms to be “invalid” and “not enforceable” within the state of Texas.
STATUS: The bills must pass through the State & Federal Power & Responsibility, Select Committee before they can receive full votes in the state house. Take the following steps to support these important bills.
1. Call the State & Federal Power & Responsibility, Select Committee Chair, Phil King. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
