With the 2019 Texas Legislative Session only a few days away, the Texas Firearms Coalition Podcast and Short-Shots will be focusing on pending bills. I have just released Short-Shot: HB131 - Rep. Moody's Disguised Firearms Confiscation Bill. The Short-Shot is available on iTunes and Stitcher, as well as the Texas Firearms Coalition website at https://www.texasfirearmscoalition.com/ ... p/podcasts. The website also has a transcript of the Short-Shot with links to HB131 and other laws discussed.

I will be doing Short-Shots on other bills of significance soon.

Chas.

Listened to the short shot. Thanks Charles. Sounds like Moody needs to withdraw this terrible piece or more likely "we" need to bury it.

Even if this bill does get passed the House, which I highly doubt, it won't get passed the Senate. If, by some great mishap, it does end up on the Governor's desk, I'm sure he will veto it without hesitation. I believe Texas has one of the lowest crime rates in the country (someone please correct me if I am wrong). And taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens would do nothing but encourage criminal activity.

And I believe that the Texas Legislature (as a whole, overall) does see it that way.
