Republican Rep. Steve Toth's "Firearms Protection Act" would render illegal any bans or restrictions on weapons and ammunition that would be passed by Congress or enacted by the President.
Furthermore, the bill would criminalize the enforcement of any such gun control measures.
A federal official found guilty of enforcing gun control would be subject to a $50,000 fine and up to five years behind bars.
Abbott previously made clear that he intends to challenge any federal restrictions on weapons or weapon possession.
Toth recognized that his proposal will likely run afoul of the Constitution's Supremacy Clause, which declares federal laws "the supreme law of the land," but says "a showdown between states and the federal government" needs to happen "at some point."
