To my knowledge, Texas does not require handgun registration.
No registration for pre-owned weapons. However, we do require the standard FBI background search when purchasing a new weapon, which leads to a whole slew of questions. Given what the FBI knew about his background, how did he manage to pass the background check?

IIRC, they are required by law to dump that data.

No kidding, considering his associations and his pronouncements. Unfortunately, it's hard to come up with a determinant there. Recall how slippery a slope is defining a person as "mentally unfit" to own a firearm. You'd want a hearing before such a determination, wouldn't you?
