Bills in Congress: Non-firearm related
« on: January 31, 2017, 07:55:40 PM »
Unless you live under a rock, which I am frequently accused of doing, you know that POTUS Trump has hit the ground running. He has wasted absolutely no time in keeping, just about all of his campaign promises. You also know that he has done a lot of this "with a pen and a cell phone", and with a  large audience.

The left and far-left leaning people of this country are losing their minds. I don't know if it is because they genuinely disagree or they can't keep up.

This being said, Trump's most controversial Executive Order to date is his temporary ban on immigration from seven countries with a high association to Islamic terrorism until those countries can prove that they properly vet and identify the people applying for US visas. The left is calling it a Muslim ban and everyone else is calling it "extreme vetting". Without missing a beat, the House minority has already introduced multiple bills that would prohibit the enforcement of this executive order and some of this other executive orders.

The next post will contain links to the legislation that I have found so far and I will include the same links to contact your representatives.
