Texas: Two sensible gun bills to be heard on Wednesday (4/10)

student protest

The NRA alerted their gun nut members to oppose two gun safety bills before the House Committee on Homeland Security & Public Safety. The timely reporting of lost and stolen guns assists law enforcement with tracking these guns. Also, surrendering of guns by those under protection orders can save lives. Concerned citizens can effectively advocate for these gun safety bills right now.

👍 House Bill 1207 would require the reporting of lost or stolen guns within five days of becoming aware of the missing guns.
