New TX Bill Lets Police Take Guns From Those in "Mental Crisis"
New Texas bill lets police take guns away from those who have already been court ordered to receive inpatient psychiatric treatment, in which case federal law would prohibit them from possessing a firearm. It also sets up a procedure for returning them to the owner safely.
The measure has passed both house and senate, and now goes to Perry, who can sign the bill, veto it or allow it to become law without his signature.
