House Committee Passes Amendment to Defund Illegal Obama Firearm Sales Reporting Requirement.
The Amendment was passed by a vote of 25-16.
The Rehberg Amendment, which was strongly supported by NRA, will defund the Justice Department’s controversial and illegal move requiring federally licensed firearms retailers in states bordering Mexico to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles.

While the Rehberg Amendment is a critically important first step, it is imperative that you contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 570. You can find contact information for your elected officials by using the “Write Your Representatives” tool at www.NRAILA.org, or you can call your U.S. senators at (202) 224-3121. S. 570 currently has 29 cosponsors. To see if your senators are cosponsors, please click here.
As Gomer Pyle used to say, “Surprise, surprise, surprise!”
And what’s more, the perfect case for voter ID was put forth by this RI news article.
In a representative democracy, voting is sacred. It is how citizens can help change their government peacefully when they think it ceases to serve their interests and values. When the vote is corrupted by fraud, the legitimacy of the entire system is undermined.
That’s why Rhode Island should require that voters produce a photo ID at the polls.
“Voting should be at least as secure as renting a car, getting a library card or any of the other tasks that routinely require an ID,” said Secretary of State Ralph Mollis.
It would be nice, and proper, if more states would do the same (cough).
Don Surber has some more on this (h/t to you, Don). Be sure to read through the comments as well.
