Newly re-elected Representative Timothy Alan Kleinschmidt (Republican of Lexington) recently introduced House Bill 176 which seeks to ban all federal restrictions on the right to possess and bear arms in the state of Texas, according to an article by the Tenth Amendment Center.
According to the provisions of the proposed legislation, any alleged violations of the Second Amendment, which allows for the possession of firearms, would be prevented. HB 176 will first be filed under a committee. It needs to get the approval of the members of said committee before it can be considered under full House deliberation.
Gun laws are currently a hot topic in the U.S. and violations may be pursued without caution by overzealous prosecutors.
