NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – To modify gun laws, modify the face of gun ownership


In the instant aftermath of final week’s shooting rampage in West Texas, state Rep. Matt Schaefer, R-Tyler, issued a memorable series of tweets. Like, “I am NOT going to use the evil acts of a handful of persons to diminish the God-provided rights of my fellow Texans. Period. None of these so-referred to as gun-manage options will function to cease a particular person with evil intent.” On Wednesday, Schaefer went a step additional, tweeting a shot at Beto O’Rourke: “Ending private gun transactions like Beto desires to do will hit undocumented persons difficult. It will make vulnerable persons significantly less secure.” This seemed an odd take from Schaefer, who in 2017 presented the essential amendment toughening the law banning sanctuary cities to enable police to query anybody they detain about their immigration status. As I know from checking the NRA’s web site, below federal law there are specific classes of persons who are “ineligible to possess, acquire, ship, or transport firearms or ammunition,” amongst them, “illegal aliens,” or as Schaefer a lot more respectfully refers to them, “undocumented persons.” However Schaefer was worried that “ending private gun transactions like Beto desires to,” may interfere with the illegal sale of firearms to ’undocumented people” who can’t below any situations legally possess them, but for whom Schaefer was intent on giving sanctuary from federal law.  [full article]
