In response to President Biden’s continued assault on Americans’ gun rights, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation via Twitter that calls on his state’s legislature to pass a bill designating the Lone Star State as a Second Amendment “sanctuary state.”
“Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights,” Abbott wrote. “He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns. We will NOT allow this in TX. It’s time to get legislation making TX a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing.”
Abbott went on to commend Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey for signing legislation in his state on April 6 that bans law enforcement from enforcing any federal gun control laws that infringe upon the Second Amendment.
