In particular she referenced Galveston, which has passed regulations forbidding the locating of "gun shops" within 200 feet of places of worship, parks, or schools. Additionally Galveston has implemented noise regulations against gun ranges -- only gun ranges -- that require them to keep the decibel level at whatever the level the previously existing usage was.
San Antonio is proposing (or may have passed by this time, I don't know) prohibitions selling firearms and ammunition within 1000 feet of churches and schools, (pretty much the entire city), and requiring businesses that do sell guns and ammo and manage to dodge the 1000' restriction to locate only in "high density" (which I read as "very expensive/high rent overhead"} areas of the city.
She also asked what actions may be taken against cities that implement such regulations in violation of state or federal law.

The AG has just issued his opinion here: https://www2.texasattorneygeneral.gov/o ... kp0252.pdf
The Summary from the opinion:
Subsection 229.00I(a)(l) of the Local Government Code prohibits a municipality from regulating the transfer, private ownership, keeping, transportation, licensing, or registration of firearms, air guns, knives, ammunition, or firearm or air gun supplies. Subsection 229.001(b)(3) excepts from this prohibition a municipality's regulation on the use of property or businesses and the location of businesses as long as the regulation does not circumvent the intent of subsection (a)(l). A regulation that expressly prohibits gun stores from operating in a specific area relates to the transfer of firearms and is prohibited by subsection 229.00I(a)(l). Similarly, an ordinance singling out firearm and ammunition sales relates to the transfer of firearms and is therefore prohibited.
A court would likely conclude subsection 229.00I(a)(l)'s prohibition encompasses any one or more of the listed items. To the extent a municipality regulates firearm transfers but not also licensing, registration, or transportation of firearms, it acts contrary to subsection 229.00l(a)(l).
A violation of section 229.001 may be enforced by the Attorney General. Any plaintiff with standing under the Texas Constitution or the U.S. Constitution could bring an action seeking declaratory or injunctive relief against enforcement of an unconstitutional ordinance. Individual city council members who voted on a zoning provision that is ultimately found to violate section 229.001 or the Texas or the U.S. Constitution would likely be immune from personal liability.
