HYDE-SMITH, COLLEAGUES COMBAT ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT WOKE CORPORATIONS

Senators Offer Bill to Terminate Federal Government Contracts with Institutions Discriminating Against Firearm Businesses

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today helped introduce legislation to stop the federal government from entering into contracts with entities that promote anti-Second Amendment policies.

The Firearm Industry Non-Discrimination (FIND) Act, authored by U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-Mont.), seeks to protect Second Amendment rights threatened as corporations and others with taxpayer-funded contracts take actions to diminish the American firearm industry.  In doing so, these corporations, financial institutions, and social media giants use their financial power to limit the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.

“Fighting gun violence is necessary, but the escalating anti-gun rhetoric from the left and mainstream media is already leading to an increase in discrimination against law-abiding firearm businesses and associations,” Hyde-Smith said.  “This bill is intended to protect constitutional Second Amendment rights and establish consequences for those entities that engage in such discrimination, namely by barring them from contracting or subcontracting with the federal government.”

“The federal government should not be in business with woke corporations that want to hinder Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.  Sending hard-earned taxpayer dollars to businesses that are anti-Second Amendment is unacceptable—we must send a clear message that their woke agenda has no place here,” Daines said.

The U.S. Constitution bars the federal government from discriminating against firearm ownership.  The FIND Act (S.4435) would prevent any entity that discriminates against firearm businesses or associations from contracting or subcontracting with the federal government.

U.S. Senators Roger Marshall M.D. (R-Kan.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), and Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-La.) also cosponsored the legislation.
