Citibank currently enjoys a $700 billion contract with the General Services Administration (GSA). Yet Citibank’s new policy mandates that financial customers in the firearms sector refuse to sell “high capacity” magazines and bump stocks, and also refuse to sell long guns to any one under 21, although federal law allows sales to customers age 18 and up. I signed onto a Congressional letter opposing this effort undermine our fundamental rights. Obviously, the federal government should do business only with companies that have respect for our constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment.

Let’s take time today to think about the very real costs of legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado. - Negative effects on children are particularly concerning, thanks to the potency, attractiveness and availability of edibles. Colorado ranks #1 for youth marijuana use, 55% higher than the national average. - Despite promises to the contrary, marijuana-related arrests have sharply increased, particularly among minorities. - Marijuana-related traffic deaths increased by 66% in the first four years post-legalization, and the number of marijuana-related hospitalizations have increased about 72%. Coloradans were told that legalizing marijuana would undercut the black market, but the opposite has been true. Rather than lessening criminal activity associated with marijuana, cartels have rushed into Colorado. Their enormous illegal marijuana grows on federal lands are polluting the environment and desecrating our beautiful forests. There is no question – recreational marijuana is bad for Colorado.

I truly want to take full advantage of the wonderful opportunity of being in Congress to highlight the tremendous value of religious liberty not only in our country but around the world. I addressed the annual consultation of the Religious Liberty Partnership, a group that works to improve religious freedom across the globe from Afghanistan to North Korea. We must be vigilant of infringements on religious liberty in our own country or we will lose the credibility to promote it globally.

Rep. Lamborn Rallies for Pregnancy Resource Centers Outside SCOTUS

Rep. Lamborn rallied outside the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of pregnancy care centers across the nation as oral arguments in the NIFLA v. Becerra case were held inside the Court.
