It's "reinforced" through a TX statute that creates a TX criminal offense for which one would be arrested by a TX LEO and tried in a TX court.
Bills like SB93
are a joke all the while this TX statute exists. HB131 would create a new statute that claims firearms and suppressors wholly made within TX are not subject to federal laws, while leaving in place the existing TX statute that creates a criminal offense for not complying with federal law.
I guess that's still regulated in a general sense, but when I hear regulated I think more along the lines of a registry and being permitted to purchase it
It's regulated in a technical sense, general sense and any other sense. Regulated does not imply nor require a registry, although I suspect Bloomberg gets all excited when he reads the 2nd Amendment and sees the "well-regulated" part (which of course doesn't mean regulated as in laws, but as in "a well-regulated clock", as explained in Heller).
