Texas Gun Rights Action Alert: HB 2837 & SB 728


May 13 2023

I’ve got good news and bad news.

The good news is pro-gun legislation to protect the privacy of gun owners is moving through the Texas legislature!

House Bill 2837 is a crucial piece of legislation that will prohibit financial institutions from using merchant codes to track, report, or disclose lawful purchases of firearms, ammunition, and accessories.

This important bill has already passed through the Texas House of Representatives and is scheduled for a Senate committee hearing on Monday 5/15!

So please click the link below to email your State Senator to support HB 2837 today!

But i’ve also got bad news.

SB 728, a bill that codifies part of the Biden gun control signed into law last summer under the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act”, is scheduled for a vote in the Texas House on Tuesday 5/16!

This bill would dump tens of thousands of juvenile mental health records into the NICS Gun Ban Registry — even if they are non-violent and have not committed a crime.

Worse, SB 728 works retroactively — and it doesn’t matter if the person has overcome their mental health issues of the past.

But here is why it is really bad: more than 94% of current NICS denials for firearms purchases are “false positives,” meaning more than 94% of the people denied a firearm purchase are wrongly denied. Funneling more names into this already flawed system is only a recipe for disaster.

Not to mention, SB 728 continues inching Texas one step closer to Joe Biden’s goal of Universal Gun Registration.

As you know, registration is just the FIRST step toward outright confiscation.

So please click the link below to tell your State Representative to OPPOSE SB 728!

We’re nearing the end of the legislative session, which ends on Monday, May 29th.

That’s why your action TODAY is absolutely critical.

Thank you for all you do!
For Texas and Liberty,
