Original Cosponsor Khanna-Gaetz Amendment Stand-Alone Bill to Block Funds for an Offensive War Against Iran

In light of the recent military strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, it is up to Congress to prevent another costly war in the Middle East. For too long, Congress has ceded its responsibilities as a co-equal branch of government when it comes to matters of
war and peace. As the New York Times recently put it, “it is long past time that the legislative branch reclaimed its central role in overseeing war waged in the name of the American people.”

Cosponsor H.R. 1266 – The Ghost Guns Are Guns Act

At the beginning of the year, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he would ask the state legislature to ban “ghost guns” by requiring them to be treated as firearms.  Other states, including Pennsylvania and Washington, have announced similar steps. 
We applaud and support these actions, but believe federal legislation is necessary to ensure that all Americans are protected and that the ghost gun loophole is fully closed.  That is why we invite you to join as a cosponsor of
H.R. 1266, the Ghost Guns Are Guns Act, a bill to ensure that individuals who would otherwise be barred from purchasing firearms would not be able to purchase a gun assembly kit online
under this current loophole.

Help Stop a War with Iran – Cosponsor H.R. 2456 – a bill to repeal the 2002 (Iraq) Authorization for the Use of Military Force

2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) as one of legal basis for military action against Iran, allowing the President to circumvent Congress to start a new war with Iran.
