Pass it on to everyone.

popVox is a nice site that makes communicating with your representatives a bit easier. However, they dont list the bills anymore so you have to do keyword searches or open a bill and use the arrows to go through them sequentially.

Ok...so I have come to the conclusion that popvox's search engine has not improved at all. I'm working with two sites now to find all of the available bills dealing with firearms, hunting, ammunition, knives, etc.

The bills posted after Feb. of 2015 are still on the books technically even though most have never moved out of committee. I'm working as fast as i can to get the info for all of the ones that I have missed. I will be making a lot of posts over the next couple of days in this thread with bills that are relevant to every day citizens (for example, there's a bill that would make it illegal to carry or use a firearm when smuggling illegal immigrants into the US).
