Woodlands lawmaker wants to make federal weapons ban illegal in Texas

by Tiffany Craig / KHOU 11 News

THE WOODLANDS -- A Republican lawmaker from The Woodlands says he's trying to make sure the federal government doesn't take away our gun rights.

Don't mess with Texans or their guns. That’s how state Rep. Steve Toth (R-Woodlands) sees it.

Toth wants to make any new federal weapons ban illegal in the state of Texas.

“This is a hardened state. This isn't a good place for a criminal to show up and start shooting,” said Rep. Toth.

So, he’s proposing legislation that would make any federal law banning semiautomatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable in the Lone Star State.

“We want to make sure this legislation protects the Second Amendment gun rights and the Tenth Amendment which is state sovereignty rights of Texans

This controversial idea comes on the heels of another state lawmaker, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, and his views about gun training for Texas teachers.

“In case we've got school personnel with a concealed handgun permit that are in that school and there's an active shooter, we don't want the children harmed we don't want the teacher harmed,” said Lt. Gov. David Dewhurs

Wonder why!  Maybe it is something in TEXAS' past!

From the TEXAS Declaration of Independence from Mexico..

“It has demanded us to deliver up our arms, which are essential to our defence, the rightful property of freemen, and formidable only to tyrannical governments.”

A side note: I went to the Grand Opening of The Woodlands way back when. Buster Crabbe was there as a kind of a greeter. All I remember is that he had a huge head and hands. Seriously.

For those who may not know The Woodlands was a huge planned development just north of Houston. It was begun by an oilman named George P. Mitchell and was quite an ambitious project. In my day The Woodlands was in a lovely area and was a nice place to live and raise a family. Hope it stayed that way.
