·       Congressman Paul Gosar: This week, I continued my efforts to push back against the anti-gun policies of the Obama Administration by successfully blocking an unjustified ATF ammo ban. But I can't take the credit for this accomplishment. The idea behind my legislation was inspired by a group of citizens from Prescott, AZ who brought this issue to my attention. Their vigilance of liberty was affirmed by the House of Representatives which used the “power of the purse” to defeat one of ATF's backdoor gun-control measures. This is how “We the People” is supposed to work and the country has some good folks in Prescott to thank for this victory.

·       Congressman Paul Gosar: Many of our nation’s military heroes  return home from combat and face serious challenges including finding employment, addiction to drugs and alcohol as well as suffering from mental illness. These veterans need and deserve focused treatment to combat their struggles. For that reason, I was proud to pass an amendment that reprograms funds from ATF bureaucracy to Veterans Treatment Courts. We should all agree that providing treatment for our veterans and others that need it through community partnerships at the local level is a far better option than locking them up. The Veterans Treatment Court Program has proven results in helping Veterans and is a proper use of government funds.

·       Congressman Paul Gosar: Congressman Paul Gosar: In recent years, the Department of Justice has instructed U.S. Attorney’s Offices in some states not to prosecute persons that violate certain criminal immigration laws and to terminate worthwhile enforcement programs like Operation Streamline. I have heard firsthand from local law enforcement in Yuma, Arizona that such actions have placed unnecessary burdens on these officers, increased costs, put local communities at risk and encouraged more illegal immigration. In order to change the rampant culture of corruption within this rogue agency, I cut funds and increased oversight for DOJ employees who have failed to enforce our immigration laws. I am a firm believer in proper oversight of the federal government and there is no question that more oversight is needed at DOJ. I will continue to send a message through House appropriations bills that failure to enforce the laws on the books will result in serious financial consequences.

·       Retire McCain GOP Candidates:

·       Congressman Paul Gosar: Blocking $500 Million in Wasteful Spending --  President Obama wanted to spend $500 million for an unnecessary and wasteful bus transit program... Not on my watch he isn't. I introduced an amendment last week that successfully stopped this wasteful spending in its tracks. In recent years, more and more resources have been sucked out of the highway trust fund and diverted to wasteful and unnecessary transit projects that only benefit a small fraction of Americans. With significant infrastructure needs, including road and bridge maintenance, now is not the time to be spending $500 million on a new discretionary bus transit program. I’m pleased my colleagues in the House passed my amendment affirming that construction projects for our nation’s porous infrastructure system are more important than an expensive, new bus program that will do little or nothing to reduce congestion.The first step on the road to fiscal stability is ending the cycle of spending money on programs that don’t work for things we don’t need with money we don’t have.
