It was tabled, not accepted, not denied. As best as I can tell, "tabled" means no-go here in Texas.
From the remarks on the amendment...
C. TURNER: I see them. So, representative, this bill is political posturing. We have a Supremacy Clause in the United States Constitution
TOTH: In 2008, the case of McDonald v. Chicago , Antonin Scalia, representing the majority of opinion, looked back on a very difficult time in Americans history. When slaves, who are now free, were fighting for their freedom again after the Civil War, whiteprior white slave owners took guns away from them.
And Antonin Scalia said preservation of the 2nd Amendment was imperative so that they could be free. There are 27 Amendments in the Constitution. And theres only one that says "shall not be infringed." In this amendment to my bill seeks to keep the attorney general from preserving this right that keeps all people free, and Id ask that we table it.
"HB 1076 - (consideration continued)
Representative Toth moved to table Amendment No. 2.
The motion to table prevailed by (Record 550): 82 Yeas, 33 Nays, 2 Present, not voting."
The third reading has been done and there has been a vote.
The results of the vote are not yet available.
The non-record vote document appears to be identical to the second reading recorded vote.
The Amendment 2 is from Chris Turner out of Grand Prairie, the same guy that wants to dog-rob the rainy day fund and give it to the Unionists over in the Texas Teachers unions.
Typical jackass. From the other side of his mouth he argues that litigation on HP 1076 would cost too much taxpayer money.
I beat you to it, hehehehe. See my apology at post 26.
Again, I get in too much of a hurry. My post 12 said that 1076 was firearms manufactured in Texas were exempt from Feds. Not true. HB1076 makes any new Federal firearms laws unenforceable in the State of Texas. HB872 is the manufacture law. Still in committee and not yet voted out.
