Gov. Greg Abbott positions Texas as a ‘Second Amendment sanctuary state’

(Source: Senior Airman Tessa Corrick) AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) – In his State of the State address last week, Gov. Greg Abbott said, “Texas must be a Second Amendment sanctuary state.” Over the weekend, he reiterated this assertion on Twitter when he shared an article about a new federal gun bill proposed by U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, and said, “This is an example why I want to make Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary State.” “Really what we’re saying is that Texas will not expend any law enforcement resources to enforce federal gun laws,” said Emily Taylor, an independent program attorney at Texas LawShield. “I think he’d like to see a presidential run in 2024, and supporting guns is a wonderful way to get yourself there — you know, not just in Texas, but in the South and the Republican Party,” she said. So far this legislative session, lawmakers in both parties have filed more than 100 firearm-related bills.
