Texas senator files measure to turn entire state into a “gun sanctuary,” nullifying ALL federal gun control laws

By J. D. Heyes

In October 2017, in direct defiance of POTUS Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on so-called “sanctuary cities” through the enforcement of all federal immigration laws, then-California Gov. Jerry Brown signed landmark legislation declaring the entire state a sanctuary for illegal aliens.

The Democrat super-majority ruling the Golden State celebrated the legislation as a rebuke of the president, but in reality, what SB 54 really does is hinder the federal government’s immigration authority.

No matter, as The Los Angeles Times reported then:

Legal experts have said federal officials may try to block the law in court to keep it from being implemented. Some doubt such challenges would be successful, pointing to the 10th Amendment and previous rulings in which courts have found the federal government can’t compel local authorities to enforce federal laws.

It’s interesting that a Left-wing paper would provide Leftist Democrats with constitutional cover, considering that the Donkey Party doesn’t concern itself about what our founding document says when it comes to the Second Amendment.

For decades Democrats have ignored a key provision of the Second Amendment — the part where it says the right “shall not be infringed” — when passing what they have always characterized as “common-sense gun laws.”

But the fact of the matter is, there is no such thing: Any law that restricts or otherwise regulates the manner in which an American citizen, regardless of any other mitigating factor, can obtain, own, carry, and “bear” a firearm is unconstitutional, period.

And now, finally, pro-Second Amendment lawmen and lawmakers are reasserting and reinforcing this right in the same way the Left has thwarted federal laws governing immigration and recreational use of marijuana: Nullification.

As reported by The Free Thought Project, lawmakers in Texas have introduced a “gun sanctuary” bill that would apply to the entire state. If it passes, it would essentially nullify nearly all federal gun control laws within the state:

Sen. Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) filed Senate Bill 378 (SB378) on January 17. The bill would prohibit any state government agency, personnel or public funds from enforcing any federal gun control regulation or law “if the federal statute, order, rule, or regulation or international law imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity, size, or configuration limitation, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”




Legal opinions on this are likely to be all over the place, and of course, the Democrat Left will decry this bill as the first step toward anarchy. But by any legitimate measure, we’ve already reached that point.

Despite the Constitution’s “Supremacy Clause,” which states clearly that federal laws supersede state laws and even state constitutions, Democrat-run states and cities are getting away with not simply ignoring federal immigration laws but actively thwarting federal immigration officials (such as refusing ICE detainer requests to turn over suspected criminal aliens). Many of the same states have also given the middle finger to federal prohibitions against recreational marijuana use.

So while law-and-order conservatives are likely to find the prospect of widespread nullification distasteful, at this point we really don’t have much choice: It’s either adopt the Left’s tactic or be “ruled” instead of governed.

At least conservatives have the Constitution on their side: Gun control laws are “infringements” on the Second Amendment, period. Some lawmakers in Texas, along with sheriffs in at least four other states, have come to understand that this key provision matters in the face of a new onslaught of Democrat measures aimed at further restricting citizens’ right to keep and bear firearms.

Let Texas sound the gun sanctuary rallying cry. Let the Lone Star State’s effort spread to hundreds of other jurisdictions.

  1. Damn Right !!!!!!!!!!! Let’s make the entire country a sanctuary country, which sounds stupid because all we’re really asking is for our constitutional right to bear arms not be thwarted by Bolshevik arseholes.

  2. at this point … there is no such thing as the ‘rule of law ‘ in this nation any longer …

  3. But when the Feds come to enforce an unconstitutional law, in what direction will the Texas officials guns be pointing?

  4. OK’s got your back TX.

  5. We’re all fucked and we know it.

  6. The individuals who wrote the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights lived during the Age of Reason. They believed that words should have precise meanings; in a given context each word must be given one and only one possible meaning.
    That was then, so we had a revolution. Thank God we won.
    This is now, and the Democrats are pushing the Age of Emotion. Guess who wants to retry the Socialist revolutions that failed in the Soviet Union, China, Cuba and now in Venezuela?
    I hope you’ve all purchased guns and plenty of ammo. If not, what are you waiting for? You have a Constitutional Right to defend yourself and your country.
    Socialism is coming to America. Taking our means of self-defense is part of their plan. Be Prepared. Register and Vote. Let’s also take Nancy Pelosi’s advice: “Do whatever you have to do, just win.

  7. “Nancy Pelosi’s advice: “Do whatever you have to do, just win”. This is how Democrats think and do things. Republicans, not so much. Those of us on the Right need to change that.

  8. Any “Libs” in Texas interested in an exchange with a Conservative from Minnesota? I’d fit in there,and Minnesota is perfect for you.
