To me, it is a sad state of affairs when the STATES have to pass laws to protect their citizens against the laws of the Federal Government. Just more proof that the SOVEREIGNTY of the State is the last refuge of the citizen who desires True Constitutional Government.
Capping A Remarkable Inagural Session For The NFA Freedom Alliance.
AUSTIN, TEXAS –-(Ammoland.com)- In a major advance for owners of guns and accessories regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA), most notably silencers or suppressors, Texas Governor Greg Abbott on May 22 2015 signed Senate Bill 473, reforming the state’s so-called “Defense to Prosecution” (DTP) law.
Texas is the second state this session, following Tennessee, to reform DTP laws at the request of the NFA Freedom Alliance.
Todd Rathner, executive director of the NFA Freedom Alliance, commented, “Because Texas has one of the nation’s highest rates of NFA ownership, this bill was a top priority in our inaugural session. Now, Texans who own NFA weapons will be able to rest easy knowing they aren’t going to be arrested because of a poorly worded law.”
The NFA Freedom Alliance’s other legislative victories this session include:
- Montana – Passed a law legalizing hunting with suppressors.
- Arkansas – Passed “Shall Certify” legislation compelling law enforcement to certify NFA forms if the applicant is not a prohibited possessor.
- Tennessee – Passed DTP reform, fully legalizing NFA weapons possession
