I know all of the philosophical arguments, but it won't work. I don't want the most pro-gun Governor we've ever had pushing something like this and loosing the next election because his Democrat challenger points out the futility of such a bill.

Chas.
Mr. Cotton it may be an exersice in futility but we the people have to push back some how. I sent Senator Hutchinson correspondence on the upcoming awb and her response was less than hopeful. She supports the 2nd amendment but........There is no but if you support the 2nd in my opinion. I can't just leave it to the NRA, GAO et al. I'm just trying to be as proactive as possible.

Texas Firearms Freedom Act

Here is something we can do while the blithering idiots in washington continue their childish fights. A senator in South Carolina is proposing a bill to invoke the 9th and 10th amendments and since we also have significant firearms manufacturers in Texas I feel we need to do something along those lines. Feel free to tailor this statement as you please.

Due to the current haphazard reaction by the federal government concerning firearms and the 2nd Amendment, I would like to see Gov. Perry support a bill like that of Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg)South Carolina -

"A bill that would exempt any firearm, accessory or ammunition manufactured and kept within the borders of the Palmetto State from federal regulations."

Further -

“A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in South Carolina and that remains within the borders of South Carolina is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce.”

We need this same law passed in the state of Texas!

We have two very successful firearms companies in Texas - LaRue and Legion Rifles. I'd hate to see this ridiculous, reactionary federal response affect the success of firearms related companies in our great state and worse yet, affect the God given freedoms of Texans.

As the leader of our great state, I look to Gov. Perry to ensure that the traditions and values of Texans are not infringed upon by those that do not understand what it means to be a Texan.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing Gov Perry's response to this matter.
