Not exactly a Red-Flag law, but Gov. Abbott has tried to stay away from that while still trying to do something.
Abbott is a hard core 2a supporter.
AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued eight executive orders Thursday in response to the mass shootings in El Paso and Midland-Odessa intended to enhance reporting requirements and to ensure that both law enforcement officers and members of the public are equipped to provide and respond to reports of suspicious activity.
"Texas must achieve several objectives to better protect our communities and our residents from mass shootings,” Abbott said.
"One of those objectives is to marshal law enforcement resources to stop violent criminals before they commit mass murders. But more must be done. I will continue to work expeditiously with the legislature on laws to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals, while safeguarding the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans,” he said.
In the aftermath of the Aug. 3 shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso that left 22 dead, authorities determined that the mother of the accused gunman had called the Allen Police Department to express concern about her son’s maturity and lack of experience in handling an assault-style rifle, but was told that based on the information she provided her son was legally allowed to purchase such a weapon.
how about armed guards at the store and our schools.
