Despite poll after poll showing that Americans want greater background checks for gun sales and favor laws restricting gun sales to the mentally ill, U.S. Rep. John Moolenaar (R-MI4) would rather listen to the gun lobby.
After all, Moolenaar has taken more than $10,000 from the NRA. In the conflict between polling — which shows constituents want common-sense gun reform — and the NRA — which wants everyone to have guns at every time — Moolenaar has chosen his side.

Moolenaar Votes to Reaffirm Constituents’ Second Amendment Rights
February 2, 2017 Press Release
Today, the House of Representatives passed legislation to overturn a rule proposed by the Social Security Administration during the Obama Administration that would deny due process rights and Second Amendment rights to law-abiding citizens.
The legislation now goes to the Senate. If it passes the Senate and is signed by the president, the rule proposed by the Social Security Administration will not take effect.
Congressman John Moolenaar voted for the legislation in the House today and released the following statement:
“No hardworking Michigan resident should have their Second Amendment rights and due process rights taken away by unaccountable bureaucrats. Those rights are enshrined in our Constitution and I will always fight to defend them.”
