Missouri Right to Life releases 2014 endorsements

July 9, 2014

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Right to Life released their endorsement list for candidates in the 2014 election cycle today.

“There are over 35 pro-life laws in the Missouri statues,” the release said. “In recent years there has been great pro-life legislation passed. This is only possible because of the strength and commitment of the pro-life legislators in our state capitol. Pro-life political action makes that possible. Making your vote count for life has never been more important. Your vote is the voice for innocent unborn children, for preventing taxpayer funding of unethical research and for advancing the cause of life.”

Missouri Right to Life is the state’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Their mission statement includes educating citizens about pro-life issues, passing legislation that promotes and defends the sanctity of innocent human life from the inception of biological development through natural death, and organizing and promote effective witness among its members across the state to maintain a Political Action Committee dedicated to electing representatives who share our mission and will work to pass pro-life laws.

REP OFFERS BILL TO END DOJ INTIMIDATION OF BANKS WORKING WITH GUN MANUFACTURERS

June 30, 2014

Via Breitbart

On May 29 Breitbart News reported Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) offered an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science spending bill to be sure no funds in it were appropriated to Operation Choke Point, a DOJ operation used to pressure banks into cutting ties with “high-risk” businesses like firearm and ammunition manufacturers and retailers.

Luetkemeyer’s amendment passed, but he told Breitbart News there needed to be legislation which would provide a more substantial stop.

On June 26 Luetkemeyer put forward legislation that will provide that by “[protecting] private industry from the organized bureaucratic intimidation and regulation underway in the Obama administration.”

According to Luetkemeyer’s official website, the bill creates “safe harbors” for financial institutions, “including banks and credit unions, to promote nondiscriminatory access to financial products and services provided the merchant is licensed, registered as a money services business, or [has] obtained a reasoned legal opinion demonstrating the legality of the merchant’s business.”

Luetkemeyer believes this legislation will finally free up banks and other financial institutions “to return to the business of offering products and services to a variety of industries” that have been targeted via Operation Choke Point. These include firearm sales, “ammunition sales, fireworks sales, and pharmaceutical sales.”
