TX: Harris County Commissioners’ Resolution Call a Ban on Private Firearm Transfers

Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- Precinct Two Commissioner Adrian Garcia has requested AGAIN that the Harris County Commission discuss and consider a resolution supporting so-called “universal” background checks on all firearm sales this coming Tuesday, November 12, 2019. He had previously pulled his item from the Commission’s late October agenda, but now it is back on!

Gun control advocates have been relentlessly pushing this issue in the wake of mass shootings in Texas and as part of their national radical anti-gun agenda.

This would put the most populous county in Texas on record as supporting a California-style ban on all private firearm sales – including those between family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, hunting buddies, and fellow gun club members. While the resolution would not have the force and effect of law, it would call on the U.S. Congress and your Texas Legislature to adopt legislation that requires these transfers be conducted through a federal firearms licensed dealer, which would include extensive federal paperwork, a criminal record check and payment of an undetermined fee. This type of law unduly burdens law-abiding citizens, would be ignored by criminals and is unenforceable without gun registration.

Tuesday’s Commissioners Court meeting is open to the public and begins at 10:00 am in the Commissioners Courtroom, located at 1001 Preston Street, Suite 934 in Houston. It is critical that you turn out for this meeting and voice your opposition to this ineffective, intrusive and unenforceable proposal.
