Democrats and leftists always seem ready to exploit any and every situation to further their political goals. Today, for example, many politicians are looking to use the coronavirus crisis as an excuse to limit Second Amendment rights.
Thanks to a letter sent by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday, however, it doesn’t look like that will be happening in the Lone Star State.
Many cities and counties are shutting down all “nonessential” stores, a list which, for many municipalities, includes gun retailers and manufacturers. In response, Paxton defended such businesses.
In a letter to state Rep. Dustin Burrows of Lubbock, the chair of the Texas House Ways and Means Committee, Paxton wrote that local governments “may not regulate or restrict the sale of firearms.”
Local regulation of the sale, possession, and ownership of firearms is specifically prohibited under Texas law.
Under our laws, every Texan retains their right to purchase and possess firearms.https://t.co/RXKCWMeryY
