A Texas law requiring all handguns be registered and labeled with serial numbers has been revised to include new regulations that require the use of a GPS tracking device to identify owners.
Lawmakers approved the measure, which is part of the state’s new gun control law, on Thursday.
It would be the first time the law has been updated since it was enacted in December 2012.
The bill also required all firearms to be labeled with a serial number to identify ownership.
The changes were made after lawmakers raised concerns about an increase in the number of gun sales after the mass shooting in December that left 26 dead and more than 500 injured in Las Vegas.
