    Texas is following suit with Montana and Utah on the states rights bill to make any gun made in that state and labled as such is exempt from Federal Regs....Do these states already have gun makers in their states or are they hoping to attract makers or start up new makers of guns..."Joe the Gunsmith"?:texas:

    There are reciprocating laws in the USA such as my Texas DL is accepted by all other states, as do some states with CHL's. if the gun is stamped 'Made in Texas" can it be taken into Montana under the same regs? Do we need one gun to carry under federal regs in other states that accept our CHL and another made in Texas for Texas CHL free from federal regs.

    I realize Most people dont see things as analytical as I do thats just my nature, I really am for this legislation, but the people in charge of making laws cant always see past their noses...leaving loopholes.

    Just my opinion, but one reason the feds can pass gun laws is because of interstate commerce. That is something the Constitution does give them some control over. Things made and sold intrastate should not fall under fed regs. So yes you would be able to take you STI or whatever to Montana. Slaves were taken north by their owners and back regardless of the local laws because they were personal property. Up to the War of Northern Aggression any way.

    I think states should enforce the 10th Amendment more often and on more things.

    The rub might be, can a gun maker survive in just selling intrastate?

    Anyone making quality guns even just intrastate may not make as much as others selling interstate but just think if every Texan Bought just one
    thats a lot of guns and without federal overhead expenses.:texas:

    Nobody said they had to sell in Texas, only. The ones sold in Texas would be exempt, the ones sold out of state would not be.

    Kind of like separating the wheat from the tares... a logistical nightmare. better to keep entities separate in mfg.ing possibly....however though they would be labled "Made in Texas". to be sold outside the state it would have to meet fed. regs. or be construed as a prohibited weapon out of Texas. i.e. if federal govt says 10 round capacity limit and double action only texas says 15 rounds and anything goes.
    Im not debunking your comment you do have a valid point... just thinking outside of the box so to speak.:texas:

    This would be good if it passed, then I could justify to my wife why I need to spend a couple thousand on a LaRue rifle. You know, to support Texas' gun manufacturers.:texas:
