Do not mess with Texas and its guns. Texas Republican Rep. Steve Toth wants to make it a felony for any federal official to try to enforce future gun control laws that would ban or limit ownership of semi-automatic weapons or reduce the size of gun magazines in his state. "If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution," Toth said. He added that he welcomes a legal fight over the Supremacy Clause, a section of the Constitution that gently reminds us all that federal law is the "supreme law" of the country. Sorry, states. "It is our responsibility to push back when those laws are infringed by King Obama," Toth said. So much for upholding the Constitution. [Source]
