SREC Passes Second Amendment Resolutions

AUSTIN, TX – The State Republican Executive Committee meeting of the Republican Party of Texas passed three resolutions which underscore the Constitutional right of individuals to keep and bear arms – Urging Texans to Use Caution Concerning TAPS, Second and Fourth Amendment Resolution Against Red Flag and Enhanced Background Checks, Resolutions Urging Support of the Republican Party of Texas Platform Planks Related to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:

“The Republican Party of Texas stands firmly on the Planks of our Platform addressing the Second Amendment as duly voted upon by our grassroots – our convention delegates. These planks and RPT’s support was underscored at the recent State Republican Executive Committee meeting with three resolutions passed to that effect. The Democrats will stop at nothing to encroach on our freedoms and we will stand for our Constitution every step of the way.”

The resolutions passed read as follows:

Urging Texans to Use Caution Concerning TAPS:
“THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas urges our state lawmakers to apply proportionate scrutiny to all criminal-related deaths; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas directs lawmakers to hold fast to the inalienable rights guaranteed by the United States and Texas Constitutions; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to Governor Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Patrick, Attorney General Paxton, all Texas legislators, and the Texas Congressional delegation.”

Second and Fourth Amendment Resolution Against Red Flag and Enhanced Background Checks:

“THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas calls upon members of the Texas Congressional Delegation and members of the Texas Legislature to firmly reject Enhanced Background Checks and Extreme Risk Protective Orders as nothing but cleverly devised infringements of the God-given and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas strongly rejects any implementation of Red Flag laws or Enhanced Background Checks should there be a Special Session of the Texas Legislature; and
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that this resolution be distributed to all Republican members of the Texas House of Representatives and Senate, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, all Republican members representing the State of Texas in the United States House of Representatives and Senate.”

Resolution Urging Support of the Republican Party of Texas Platform Planks Related to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
“THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas calls upon our elected leaders to protect and defend the inalienable right of Texans to keep and bear arms for the defense of themselves and of the State by supporting policies consistent with the aforementioned planks of the 2018 Republican Party of Texas Platform; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Republican Party of Texas calls upon our elected officials to protect community safety without infringing upon the ability of law-abiding Texans to freely exercise their Constitutional rights and defend themselves, their families, or their property; and
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that this resolution be distributed to all Republican members of the Texas House of Representatives and Senate, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, all Republican members representing the State of Texas in the United States House of Representatives and Senate.”
