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.

We Need Olympics Reform Now! – DOJ Now Investigating Sex Abuse Within Olympic Organizations

Over the past several decades, the Olympic movement has strayed from its roots. The time is now to take a serious look at the USOPC and if it is fulfilling its mission as outlined by the Ted Stevens Amateur Sports Act. As several Congressional and private
investigations revealed, United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee officials were more concerned with protecting the Olympics brand and producing medals than athlete’s health and well being. The time is right to take an Olympics wide accounting of the
underlying culture that lead to the multiple sexual abuse scandals plaguing the Olympics community.
A Congressionally mandated Commission will allow experts in sports governance, coaching, child welfare and abuse to address these issues in a timely manner, free from politics.
