Texas Gov. Abbott Urges “2nd Amendment Sanctuary State” Legislation Following Biden Gun Control Declaration

From News Wars:

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) called on state legislators to bring him a bill declaring Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary following executive actions on gun control announced by Joe Biden Thursday.

After Biden imposed six new measures aimed at making it more difficult for Americans to obtain guns, Abbott shot back that “Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights.

“He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns,” Abbott declared on Twitter, adding, “We will NOT allow this in TX.”

“It’s time to get legislation making TX a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing,” the governor stated.

According to Breitbart, Biden’s new orders, which circumvent Congress by instead using the Justice Department as an end-run around the Second Amendment, would affect the sale and ownership particularly of AR-pistols.

On December 23, 2020, Breitbart News reported that the ATF withdrew their recategorization guidelines, but Biden’s push to have the DOJ refocus on AR-pistols appears to mean the recategorization push is receiving new life.

The purchase of AR-pistols categorized as “short-barreled rifles” could require being fingerprinted and photographed, as well as undergoing a background check, registering the firearm with the ATF, paying the federal government a $200 tax (on top of the price of the firearm), and waiting nine to ten months for the whole purchasing process to be completed. That is the standard process for other firearms and accessories under the purview of the National Firearms Act.

Abbott previously defended gun rights in the Lone Star State during the Obama era, when the former Democrat president threatened to unilaterally impose stricter rules on the selling and purchase of firearms.

“Obama wants to impose more gun control,” Abbott tweeted at the time. “My response? COME & TAKE IT.”
