The State Republican Executive Committee is comprised a of male and female from each of the 31 Senate Districts in Texas. They are mostly older white people. They are in charge of conducting the business of the party including resolutions.
(In contrast, the State Democratic Executive Committee has members from each district as well as 2 members from the Labor Caucus, the Asian-American Caucus, Black Caucus, Latino Caucus, Gay Caucus,Veterans, Women, Environmental, and young Democrats. We are a big, diverse, tent.)
After the latest mass shooting in Odessa which left 7 families mourning the death of their loved ones and many other families saddled with massive bills to treat their gun shot wounds the State Republican Executive Committee took action.
The SREC voted unanimously on a resolution to oppose enhanced background checks and any type of red flag laws.
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
