State Rep. Steve Toth (R) files 'Firearm Protection Act'



State Rep. Steve Toth (R-The Woodlands) has filed legislation assisting the protection of the Second Amendment of the United State Constitution. The 'Firearms Protection Act' or HB 1076 would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries. Any municipality, county, or special district trying to enforce a federal gun ban could face monetary holdings by the state and misdemeanor charges under this proposal.

Due to the supreme importance to our constituents 2nd Amendment rights, Representative Toth felt the need to implore the assistance of Attorney General Greg Abbott in the drafting process. Together, along with the input of Sheriff Richard Mack, the 'Firearm Protection Act' has the strongest legislative language to protect our local law enforcement officers.

American's all over the United States have inundated Representative Toth's office with support and assistance. Representative Toth states, "Many law enforcement officers have realistic concerns over either obeying federal law that calls them to infringe on citizens 2nd Amendment rights or do they uphold the U.S. Constitution they have taken the oath to protect citizens against enemies both foreign and domestic. HB 1076 answers these concerns by protecting our local officers from the inability to protect our Texas citizens in the event an unconstitutional mandate is passed by this Federal Administration."

The 'Firearm Protection Act' would do the following:

• Supports and protects our local sheriffs and law enforcement officers working hard to protect Texan's 2nd Amendment Rights

• Sends a clear message to Washington by supporting and protecting Texans from the Federal Administrations unconstitutional overreach

• Addresses local Texans concerns for their personal safety

2. Why do my high school seniors know this:

Article VI, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Supremacy Clause because it provides that the "Constitution, and the Laws of the United States … shall be the supreme Law of the Land." It means that the federal government, in exercising any of the powers enumerated in the Constitution, must prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent state exercise of power.


and why does Toth not? I don't know why, because nowhere, not in his official bio, not in his state info, nowhere does he state where he went to high school, nor does the name the "seminary" he took some night classes in.

He installs swimming pools for a living, but I would never let a total dumbass like this touch anything that could affect my family. He's not from Texas, although I can't seem to find out where he came from before Johnson & Johnson sent him down here as some sort of sales rep. He lost that job, apparently, and became a swimming pool installer.

He is supported by the TEA dummies, of course.

3. So if a crime is committed under the State House Bill, it becomes a federal issue with the Texas

Legislature mandating an insurrection. Damages could be brought against the State of Texas for the taxpayers to be liable for.

4. You got to be kidding

This bill is so stupid that it is funny. The US Constitution and federal law trumps state law.

The idiot proposing this bill is luckily not a lawyer and clearly has never read the US Constitution. I saw on his website that this idiot is a teabagger and proud of being a teabagger.
