TX: Could Texas become a Second Amendment Sanctuary State?
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

A bill in the Texas House is trying to make Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary State.

A second amendment sanctuary state is defined as a state that has adopted laws or resolutions that prohibit the enforcement of certain gun control measures.

"If you buy a gun from a federal firearms licensee like Academy or Joe’s Gun Shop, their license requires them to run a background check on you," she says. "But private sales are not regulated at all, you and I could sell guns to each other and there’s no background check required. It's a huge loophole."

They really like that term, "loophole," don't they?


The Constitution delegates to Congress the power to regulate commerce. Private sales are not commerce, and there is no enumerated federal authority to regulate them.

The answer to the question, whether anybody likes it or not, is "NO. You can't do that."


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
