Texas: Gun Control Bills Continue To Be Filed
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:03:27 PM »
NRA-ILA February 4, 2019

The Texas Legislature convened in Austin last month for its 86th Regular Session and the number of gun control measures filed so far is unprecedented.  And there’s more to come – the deadline for bill introduction is not until March 8.

New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s national gun control groups Everytown for Gun Safety/Moms Demand Action, along with their policy partners at Texas Gun Sense, continue working with anti-gun lawmakers to file countless misguided proposals that restrict your Second Amendment rights.  Don’t be fooled by attempts to package these bills as “sensible public safety measures” or “common-sense solutions to gun violence” – they are part of Bloomberg’s radical agenda that targets law-abiding gun owners.

We reported to you last month on some of that legislation. Since then, even more gun control measures have been introduced, including but not limited to:

House Bill 930 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) repeals the Lone Star State’s “Castle Doctrine” law.

House Bill 1163 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) allows municipalities with a population of more than 750,000 to vote on whether to prohibit License To Carry holders from openly carrying handguns within city limits.

House Bill 1164 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) expands the prohibited places that apply to License to Carry (LTC) holders in Penal Code Section 46.035 to include facilities such as golf courses, amphitheaters, auditoriums, theaters, museums, zoos, botanical gardens, civic centers and convention centers, provided they are posted off-limits.

House Bill 1169 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) creates the offense of knowingly selling a firearm to another at a gun show without conducting the transfer through a licensed dealer, which would involve completing extensive federal paperwork and payment of an undetermined fee.

House Bill 1207 by Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (D-Austin) makes it a crime for a person to fail to report a lost or stolen firearm within five days of the person becoming aware that the gun was lost or stolen.

House Bill 1236 by Rep. Vikki Goodwin (D-Austin) allows public colleges and universities to opt-out of Texas’ campus carry law.  (An identical bill, HB 1173, was also filed by Rep. Rafael Anchia.)

Dear TSRA Members, Family and Friends:
 
The Texas Legislature convened in Austin last month for its 86th Regular Session and the number of gun control measures filed so far is unprecedented.  And there's more to come - the deadline for bill introduction is not until March 8th.
 
New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg's national gun control groups Everytown for Gun Safety/Moms Demand Action, along with their policy partners at Texas Gun Sense, continue working with anti-gun lawmakers to file countless misguided proposals that restrict your Second Amendment rights.  Don't be fooled by attempts to package these bills as "sensible public safety measures" or "common-sense solutions to gun violence" - they are part of Bloomberg's radical agenda that targets law-abiding gun owners.
 
TSRA has reported pre-filed bills in addition to a few bills filed in the early days of session.   Below is additional lists of bad bills, followed by more good ones.   
 
Representative Rafael Anchia of Dallas filed 11 anti-gun bills in one day.   The list below contains only a few. 
 
House Bill 930 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) repeals the Lone Star State's "Castle Doctrine" law.
 
House Bill 1163 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) allows municipalities with a population of more than 750,000 to vote on whether to prohibit License To Carry holders from openly carrying handguns within city limits.
 
House Bill 1164 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) expands the prohibited places that apply to License to Carry (LTC) holders in Penal Code Section 46.035 to include facilities such as golf courses, amphitheaters, auditoriums, theaters, museums, zoos, botanical gardens, civic centers and convention centers, provided they are posted off-limits.
 
House Bill 1169 by Rep. Rafael Anchia (D-Dallas) creates the offense of knowingly selling a firearm to another at a gun show without conducting the transfer through a licensed dealer, which would involve completing extensive federal paperwork and payment of an undetermined fee.
 
House Bill 1207 by Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (D-Austin) makes it a crime for a person to fail to report a lost or stolen firearm within five days of the person becoming aware that the gun was lost or stolen.
 
House Bill 1236 by Rep. Vikki Goodwin (D-Austin) allows public colleges and universities to opt-out of Texas' campus carry law.  (An identical bill, HB 1173, was also filed by Rep. Rafael Anchia.)
 
What can you do to help protect your Second Amendment rights.  One good suggestion is to sign up on the State Legislature's site for alerts as bills move through the process.   My TLO will help you stay up to date!
 
Additional pro-gun bills include the following: 
 
House Bill 1009 by Rep. Will Metcalf (R-Conroe) clarifies the definition of "school-sponsored activity" in the Texas Penal Code to avoid the establishment of roving gun-free zones in buildings or areas that are not owned by or under the control of a school or postsecondary educational institution.
 
House Bill 1143 by Rep. Cole Hefner (R-Mount Pleasant) limits the authority of school districts to regulate the manner in which firearms and ammunition are stored in private motor vehicles parked on school property (including by school employees).
 
House Bill 1149 by Rep. James White (R-Woodville) ties eligibility for a License To Carry a handgun to the ability to purchase a firearm.
 
House Bill 1177 by Rep. Dade Phelan (R-Beaumont) & Senate Bill 506 by Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) protect citizens from being charged with a crime for carrying a handgun while evacuating from an area subject to a mandatory order issued during a declared state or local disaster, or while returning home.
 
House Bill 1231 by Rep. Dan Flynn (R-Van) & Senate Bill 535 by Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) repeals the prohibition on carrying in churches or other places of worship.
 
Senate Bill 472 by Sen. Bryan Hughes (R-Mineola) protects the rights of tenants to lawfully possess firearms in their residential or commercial rental properties and to transport their guns between their personal vehicles and those locations.
         
TSRA's 100th Birthday and Annual Meeting
 
U.S. Senators Cornyn and Cruz will attend TSRA's Birthday and Annual Meeting on Saturday morning, March 2nd at the Sheraton in Georgetown.  Expect a panel discussion.   
 
A Legislative PAC Reception is being held Friday evening, March 1st, at the Sheraton in Georgetown-6:00-8:00 to rebuild PAC funds for future elections.   
 
Keep the Faith

1. The Texas Legislature meets EVERY OTHER YEAR.  That limits the damage government can do.
2.  We have a majority in the House and Senate.  No bad gun bill will pass, even if it gets to the floor.  These bills will likely be killed in committee (yes, killed as in dead).
3.  This is Texas - most probably, every Democrat has one or more weapons and carry one and has another in his/her car.
4.  Our Castle law lets one kill an intruder in his/her house.  Instead of getting arrested for that killing, the owner gets a medal (no, not really a medal, but plenty of praising for the owner defending the house and all in it). 

Governor Abbott is responsible for the open carry law, and wants to do away with having to get a license in order to carry. His opinion is one has the right to have weapons so why are we telling them they have to get a license to carry? I have heard him say some people may not have the money to get a license, yet it is their right to have one and carry - that is his reason for changing that law to eliminate the money requirement.

Have you ever gone hunting in a wheelchair?  Abbott does.

Let the Big-City liberals introduce bills for all the good it will do.
