Texas Weighs Bill That Would Buck Gun Control
HOUSTON (CN) - A Texas legislator proposed a bill that would make it a misdemeanor to enforce federal gun-control measures pushed by the Obama administration.
Rep. Steve Toth, a Republican from The Woodlands, recently filed HB 1076 "The Firearms Protection Act."
If the state Legislature passes it, the measure would ban state, county and municipal authorities, including district attorneys, from enforcing any future federal gun control laws.
It would also allow Texas police officers to arrest federal law enforcement agents who attempt to enforce any federal bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines within the state.

1. These know-nothings know nothing about The Constitution of the United States. Let 'em try it.
No police officer in the United States would arrest a federal agent for enforcing U.S. law. Idiots.

2. Montana didn't get the Memo either
Montana Bill Would Let Sheriffs Arrest FBI Agents for Arresting People
If Montana voters approve Gary Marbut's referendum in November 2014, any FBI agent who tries to arrest a Montanan for a federal crime could be arrested—and charged with kidnapping.
Marbut's "Sheriffs First" bill, which cleared a Montana state Senate committee last week, makes it a crime for a federal agent to take any law-enforcement steps without first getting permission from the county sheriff. The proposal already passed both houses of the legislature once, in 2011, but was vetoed by then-Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat. This time Marbut, the Montana gun lobbyist and aspiring firearms manufacturer who wrote the bill, is hoping Montana voters will determine the fate of his legislation. If passed, the latest version of the Sheriffs First measure would become a ballot question in November of 2014.
