Gov. Greg Abbott (right) called on state lawmakers to present him with a bill declaring Texas a Second Amendment sanctuary following executive actions on gun control announced by Joe Biden on Thursday .
After Biden imposed six new measures designed to make it harder for Americans to obtain guns, Abbott countered that “Biden threatens our 2nd Amendment rights.”
“He just announced a new Liberal takeover to take our guns away,” Abbott said on Twitter, adding, “We will NOT allow this in Texas.”
“It’s time to pass legislation making TX an amended 2nd State Sanctuary and in my office for signature,” the governor said.
According to BreitbartBiden’s new ordinances, which bypass Congress by instead using the Justice Department as the final solution around the Second Amendment, will affect the sale and ownership of AR pistols in particular.
On December 23, 2020, Breitbart News reported that the ATF had withdrawn its recategorization guidelines, but Biden’s push for the DOJ to refocus on AR guns appears to mean the recategorization push is taking on new life.
The purchase of AR pistols categorized as “short barrel rifles” may require fingerprinting and photography, as well as background check, firearm registration with the ATF, by paying the federal government a tax of $ 200 (on top of the price of the firearm) and waiting nine to ten months for the entire purchasing process to be completed. This is the standard process for other firearms and accessories under the National Firearms Act.
Abbott had previously defended gun rights in the Lone Star State during the Obama era, when the former Democratic president threatened to unilaterally impose stricter rules on the sale and purchase of firearms. .
“Obama wants to impose more gun control,” Abbott tweeted at the time. “My answer? COME AND TAKE IT.”
