    Texas' 2nd Amendment Preservation Act is a lie

    HB 176 claims to nullify federal gun control. It nullifies federal requirements for tax stamps and registration. It makes it illegal for state and local law enforcement to enforce those federal laws. It even provides civil remedies.

    It doesn't repeal Texas' own prohibition of NFA items. It leaves PC 46.05 intact.

    It promises the moon and delivers nothing but fancy words.

    Most pro-gunners themselves have been brainwashed into think that such legislation effects their rights.

    People had, before the constitution was even made, the RKBA.

    Did it ever intend to make NFA items legal? Or was its intent to do as it claims: nullify federal gun control?

    It could also possibly be setting the stage for relaxation of Texas' own prohibition of NFA items in the future. After all, before you dig a pit near open water, you must first build the levee.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    But then comes the question, if it nullifies federal law then does it nullify the tax stamp?

    The law either does nothing or strengthens gun control in Texas.

    If it nullifies federal law then it probably nullifies the tax stamp exemption too, making it illegal to own an NFA item in Texas.

    If they really wanted to do something they would have repealed 46.05 in the bill. But they didn't.

    At best the bill is grandstanding and I do not support that B.S.

    At worst it is backdoor gun control and I really do not support.
