(RepublicanPress.org) – The Left has been trying to enact gun control legislation for years. It was only a matter of time with Democrats in control of the White House and both houses of Congress. Now, they are making the predictable move to gut Second Amendment protections.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a new gun control measure earlier this year, destined to become one of the most radical gun control measures ever proposed. Like the name implies, the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act would mandate a grueling regimen of licensing requirements, including firearms training and psychiatric evaluations. Likewise, it would establish a federal gun registry along with a publicly accessible gun owner database.
As one might expect, several leading conservative voices swiftly spoke out against the measure. As you can see in the tweet below, Texas Governor Greg Abbott suggested designating Texas as a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary State.”
This is an example why I want to make Texas a Second Amendment Sanctuary State —>
Gun control bill from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee would create national firearm registry, require licensing.
We must erect a complete barrier to gun regulations like this. https://t.co/gKtGnISqzf

If passed, Lee’s bill would make it much more difficult for people to purchase firearms. Over the long-term, that could be a huge blow to gun owners and those looking to buy firearms in the future.
