Ok..so i was reading on the NFA guns thread on facebook and apparently it is illegal to own NFA items in the state of texas ..even if you have a NFA Tax Stamp..According to this gentlemans story http://www.kens5.com...06/27/10572466/ ..After he produced his NFA tax stamps to the off duty LEO he disregarded them and was still arrested..After doing a little digging in the Texas penal codes sec 46.05 ..It is correct Owning an NFA item in the state of texas is technically illegal ..but having your NFA Tax stamp gives you a defense to prosecution after you have been arrested and served a few weeks in Ass Rape town..
