Democrat Leadership Trying to Close Fort Worth Gun Shows

New York and Colorado have been at the top of the news for horrendous anti-gun legislation.  New York has their laughable 7 round magazine capacity limitation and Colorado may very well ban most pump action shotguns along with other firearms they consider extra evil.  With all this gun banning going on in these liberal meccas, the Libs here in Texas feel a bit left out.  In an attempt (I guess) to get in the news and show the big wigs in the Democrat Party that he is a good Lib and ardently follows the party line, Tarrant County's Democratic Party leader has jumped into the anti-gun fray with a few ideas of his own.

Brandon Todd of reported that a Politician proposes Fort Worth gun show restrictions.

From the article:
Stephen Maxwell proposed three rules for any gun show within city limits: each show must require background checks, establish a seven-day waiting period and ensure anyone selling a gun is a licensed dealer. He believes these restrictions will help keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them.
He says he believes that these local rules will keep guns out of "the hands of people who shouldn't have them".  I have to call Bull Shit on that.  He believes nothing of the sort.  The purpose of legislation or ordinances such as this is solely to shut down gun shows.  He also knows that this will never pass muster in Fort Worth or in the State of Texas.  This is just his way of getting his name associated with the gun grabber mafia.  Heck, Bloomburg may just throw him a few dollars to help him spread the work.

I have to admit, when I first read this I thought that Stepahn Maxwell was just another California transplant trying to turn Texas into the state he fled.  I was wrong, Stephen Maxwell is a native Texan, born in Amarillo of all places.  He is also a successful ambulance chaser who seems to have made his name in the Texas Bar.  From all appearances he is a smart man.  One has to wonder what has pushed him so far away from Liberty.

Ridiculous crap on the part of these libs. Gun ownership and the protection of life it brings is a natural right enshrined in our constitution.
