A Texas lawmaker has introduced a bill that would prohibit people from buying or possessing semi-auto guns and other firearms that do not have a safety feature.
The Texas Tribune reported Wednesday that Texas Sen. Ron Nirenberg, a Democrat, filed the bill in the state House.
The legislation would prohibit any person from buying, possessing or owning a semiautomatic weapon or a firearm that does not have the safety feature required by the state’s gun laws.
It would also bar people from possessing or transporting any firearm that is designed to shoot more than 10 rounds.
The bill would be the latest attempt to ban firearms that have safety features that have not been approved by the U.S. Department of Justice or the U-Haul Corporation, the companies that own the trucking company.
The U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution in March that calls on the world to unite against the “systemic, systemic, global” gun violence.
The Senate approved the legislation on a vote of 16-7.
The legislation comes as lawmakers grapple with an ongoing debate over whether to enact the so-called Brady Bill, which would impose background checks on gun buyers, and a proposal by the Democratic-led Senate to prohibit certain types of semi-automatics.
The House bill is expected to be heard in committee next week.
