Global State Preemption Bill – YES!!

Postby Charles L. Cotton » Fri Feb 13, 2015 9:55 am

SB343 is not limited to firearms and, in fact, doesn't even mention firearms. Nevertheless, it's a much needed bill to cure problems like San Antonio's municipal knife ordinances, cell phone ordinances in some cities and towns, etc.

Many issues are best left to the Texas Legislature.

Texas gun owners have enjoyed a strong preemption law that prohibits cities and counties from regulating most aspects of gun ownership and usage. The preemption law was first passed in 1987 and it has been improved periodically over the years. Freshman Senator Don Huffines has filed SB343 that will extend this concept so that Texans are protected from all patchwork, conflicting regulations that make it quite easy to unintentionally violate a local ordinance or regulation. While SB343 is not directly related to firearms, it is much-needed protection for Texans and some of the regulations it would prevent are at least tangentially related to guns. . . .

Could 'shall sign' for NFA items get in under this?

Not unless the chief LEO bill passes, but then preemption wouldn't be needed. SB343 is more of a defensive measure than an offensive one.
