    A Texas lawmaker wants to further push state sovereignty from the federal government.

    Rep. Leo Berman, a former Arlington mayor pro tem, has filed a bill to make guns, ammunition and gun parts that are made, sold and kept in Texas free from federal regulation.

    That would exempt them from federal gun registration, dealer licensing rules and buyer background checks. State laws would still apply.

    "This does two things," said Berman, a Tyler Republican. "It tests our sovereignty in relationship to the federal government, and it would attract new small gun manufacturers to the state to manufacture certain types of weapons and ammunition that are only used in intrastate commerce."

    I am just giddy as a schoolgirl imagining any firearm with "Made in Texas" stamped on it.

    :cool:

    i'm not sure why this kind of thing hasn't already been put into place.

    a long time coming, imo.
