    Gun bill pending...

    I don't see this ever passing...


    Bill No.: H. B. 595
    Subject: Providing that a person commits a criminal offense if the person:
    (1) purchases more than one handgun, or sells more than one handgun to the same person, within a 30 day period;
    (2) purchases a handgun without first completing and delivering to the seller a handgun purchase form as prescribed by the Department of Public Safety; or
    (3) sells a handgun to any person without first:
    (A) submitting to the Department of Public Safety a handgun purchase form completed and delivered to the seller by the purchaser; and
    (B) receiving notice from the Department of Public Safety that the purchaser did not purchase another handgun within the 30 day period preceding the date of the form.
    In addition, this bill states that the offense created under this measure would be a state jail felony.
    Sponsor: Rep. Yvonne Davis
    Committee:
    Note: This bill expressly states that this measure would not be applicable to a transaction that was a purchase by or sale to a community supervision and corrections department officer.

    Let's hope it does not pass. Not sure when she is up for re-election but our friends in the Dallas area need to remember her name.

    I think it is very strange that it does not apply to a probation officer.... - So, it wouldn't apply to me

    Okay, if I understand that right, if I bought a revolver today, and yet found a good deal on a 1911 next week, I can't buy it because it's within 30 days?
    In other words no one could buy more than 1 handgun every 30 days.

    Texas Self-Defense Bill Heads to Senate!
    Please Contact Your State Senator Today!

    This coming Monday afternoon, March 12, the State Senate is expected to vote on SB 378, the NRA-backed “Castle Doctrine” bill sponsored by State Senator Jeff Wentworth (R-San Antonio).



    This bill offers protection from criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits to law-abiding citizens who use force to defend themselves and their families. SB 378 creates a presumption of reasonable use of defensive force in response to an unlawful and forceful entry into your occupied home, vehicle, place of business, and/or employment.



    The bill also states that you have no duty to retreat from a criminal attack, if you are in a place where you have a right to be, if you are not engaged in criminal activity, and if you did not provoke your attacker. Lastly, SB 378 provides immunity from liability for the lawful use of force.



    Your State Senator is a co-author to this important measure. Please contact your State Senator at their capitol office on Friday or Monday morning to thank him or her for co-authoring SB 378. Please urge your Senator to pass SB 378 and send it to the House for consideration. Contact information for your State Senator can be found using the “Write Your Representative” feature below.
