A Texas bill that would allow for the arrest and prosecution of law enforcement officials who try to implement certain new federal gun control laws is really aimed at protecting state sheriffs, said the sponsor, during a television interview on Monday.
A bill winding through the Texas Legislature would charge local police officers who dare to enforce any new federal gun laws with a Class A misdemeanor.
Rep. Steve Toth said on WOAI 1200-AM that his Firearms Protection Act will make trying to enforce a federal gun ban in the state subject to a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison.
"At some point, there needs to be a showdown between the states and the federal government over the Supremacy Clause," Mr. Toth said. "It is our responsibility to push back when those laws are infringed by King Obama."
