In 2019, following two mass shootings in Texas, Schaefer tweeted his vehement opposition to increasing restrictions such as universal background checks, bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine purchases, and mandatory gun buybacks. Instead, he advocates for prayer and discipline in the home, as well as the right to carry for law-abiding single mothers. This was tweeted a day after mass shootings occurred in the Midland-Odessa area of Texas with 7 fatalities, including one law enforcement officer; and, one day before new Texas laws went into effect to "ease restrictions on guns, including allowing firearms in public places like schools and churches, on rented and leased property and during disasters."
He ran without Democratic opposition in his successful bid for a fourth legislative term in the general election held on November 6, 2018. Schaefer defeated Neal Katz, an independent, 37,056 (75.6 percent) to 11,929 (24.4 percent).
In 2015, Schaefer put forward Amendment 18 to the Texas Health and Safety Code, attaching it to CSHB 2510. The amendment addressed the legality of terminating a pregnancy when in utero testing yields "a severe and irreversible fetal abnormality" diagnosis. Schaefer's position was one in defense of all life, asserting that the disabled deserve the same protection inside the womb that they receive once born. Representative Spitzer, a doctor, argued for the amendment, saying, "We want them [mothers, parents] to be able to have that child and have that grieving process." Representative Sheffield, also a doctor, disagreed, saying, "[A]s a doctor—for my patients it is unethical for we doctors to impose upon them a set of guidelines that forces them in one direction or another, taking away their rights." Schaefer's amendment passed with a solid majority, but Democrats halted passage of the whole bill using a technical objection. When the bill returned to the House floor weeks later, it had been re-written to such a degree that Schaefer's amendment would no longer be "germane," or topically relevant to the bill and was not able to be attached.
In 2015, Schaefer was given a rating of 100% by Texas Right to Life. Conversely, NARAL Pro-Choice Texas gave Schaefer a score of 0% in 2013. Empower Texans gave a score of 100% three legislative sessions in a row (2017, 2015, and 2013). Additionally, in 2015 both the Young Conservatives of Texas and the Texas Eagle Forum gave a score of 95% to Schaefer. With regards to sexual orientation/gender identity, Equality Texas gave him a score of 14%.
Schaefer won renomination to a second term to the District 6 House seat in the Republican primary, held March 4, 2014. He defeated Tyler businessman Skip M. Ogle, 9,888, or 61.1%, to 6,304, or 38.3%.
In 2013, Schaefer voted for Texas Senate Bill 5, which required doctors who provide abortion services to be registered at hospitals within 30 miles of their office.
Schafer was first elected to the Texas House of Representatives in November 2012. In the 2012 primary election, he had successfully challenged incumbent representative Leo Berman. Schaeffer unseated Berman in the Republican primary election held on May 29, 2012. He received 11,138 votes, or 57.7 percent, to Berman's 8,172 votes (42.3 percent). Schaefer was unopposed in the November general election.
