NRA Moving To Texas

From The Truth About Guns:

The National Rifle Association, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, is shutting down in New York State to reincorporate in Texas.  By doing so, the NRA hopes to escape the partisan political prosecution (some say persecution) by the NY State Attorney General Leticia James.  The NRA has released a new website with their presentation of the change and the reasons behind it.

TX State Rep Intros Bill To Repeal Castle Doctrine

From The Truth About Guns:

…a very worrying piece of legislation was introduced by Irving State Representative Terry Meza. HB 196 seeks to repeal the Castle Doctrine, preventing a homeowner from using firearms to defend their property.

Yes and no. The bill does strike “robbery, or aggravated robbery” from the list of things one can use deadly force against in Sections 9.32(a)(3)(B). But the use of deadly force — and not just with a firearm — to prevent the loss of “tangible, movable property” is left intact in Section 9.41.

First Bump Stock As A Machine Gun Prosecution Dropped

From Houston Chronicle:

A federal prosecutor withdrew the unique charge before the trial began for a Houston man accused of owning the device. However, the defense was prepared to call an ATF expert to testify that bump stocks, attachments that cause a rifle to fire more rapidly, do not render a semiautomatic gun a machine gun.

Experts had conflicting views on the matter, said defense attorney Tom Berg. But Rick Vasquez, a retired ATF agent and firearms expert, would have told the court the bump stock did not meet the statutory definition of a machine gun. The prosecution dismissed case, he said, because the government couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt the bump stock was a machine gun.

Texas Counselor Promoting Communist/Terrorist Propaganda

From The New American:

On June 12, Plano Independent School District (ISD) Counselor Dianne Evans sent an email using her official account that would shock even the most liberal and “progressive” parents. Perhaps most alarming was the “Master List of Black Revolutionary Readings” that literally included a manual on guerrilla warfare by communist mass murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara, who ironically was a raging anti-black racist.
