    I looked but couldn't find a thread about this specifically, if I missed it, please disregard or please merge.

    I just seen this email from Moms Demand Hot Action but I can't seem to find any text of it and when I look it up, instead I find the summary for

    "Electing Members to certain standing committees of the House of Representatives."

    Did they screw up or is there something going on here I am missing?

    If it was introduced today, it may take up to 24hrs for the websites to update.

    I’ve seen something on this recently as well. As far as I’m concerned, they can suck it, Trebeck.

    But what if they don't think your action is hot?

    Then shoot until your action is hot.

    On a separate note, Rubio introduced S.7, Federal ERPO legislation that has been referred to the Senate Justice Committee. Cornyn & Cruz both sit on that committee. Time to let them know to kill it.

    "It is the sense of Congress that—

    (1) each State and Indian tribe should enact extreme risk protection order legislation described in part NN of title I of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, as added by section 3; and

    (2) such extreme risk protection order legislation is an important tool in the efforts of States and Indian tribes to ensure that firearms and ammunition are kept out of the hands of individuals whom a court has determined to be a significant danger to themselves or others."

    Ties federal grants to requirement that states enact ERPO laws.

    It’s going to suck when Trump signs this.

    By the time they know my action is not so hot. It is to late I have had my fun and have already fell a sleep.

    Updated, still no text, however I am sure we can guess what it will say.... Just one of many.

    H.R. 8: To require a background check for every firearm sale.

    There is also this one I came upon, again, no text yet....

    H.R. 282: To improve public safety through sensible reforms to firearms regulations.
