Rep. Toth expects moderates to kill firearms act

Tea Party knives out for Speaker

Austin – New law nullifying President Obama's thrust toward limiting Americans' ownership of assault weapons probably won't get an up or down vote, said the author of a bill designed to preserve Second Amendment rights.

The bill would make it a serious misdemeanor crime for any federal official to try to enforce executive orders or new federal laws further restricting gun rights. It is considered by knowledgeable observers to be a states rights, nullification law drafted under the terms of the 9th and 10th amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which reserves any powers not specifically granted to the U.S. Government by the Constitution to the states.

Rep. Toth said he believes the Federalist Committee will report the bill out, but it will bog down in the committee that schedules proposed legislation for a debate before the full House. The Calendars Committee is key to legislation getting a toehold in any session of the legislature, and is controlled closely by Speaker of the House Joe Strauss, (R-San Antonio).

I have every expectation that the moderates in Calendars (committee) will try to kill it,” he said.

At that point, the Lone Star Tea Party personality erupted, saying “Joe Strauss is not a conservative, yet he runs in the Republican Party primary!”

Rep. Toth agreed, but took a more moderate tone, saying, “We're not doing a good job of turning out the vote.” He pointed out the fact that some 30 million evangelical Christians stayed away on election day, shunning the Republican Party candidate Mitt Romney, a Mormon.

Mr. Toth is a Christian minister. He reminded listeners that “Jesus Christ is still on the throne. We will lose our republic if people don't get involved in the process.” He decried the younger generation's seeming disinterest in political intricacies.

The talk radio host agreed, saying, “We're going to run the names of any moderates who oppose this bill in the Calendars Committee up the flagpole.”
