FIND Act to be Heard in Senate Committee

Please call your state senator today and request support for SB 1048

The NSSF®- supported Firearm Industry Nondiscrimination (FIND) Act, SB 1048, is scheduled for a public hearing on Tuesday, March 29 in the Senate Committee on Insurance and Banking. This legislation, sponsored by State Senator Rick Brattin (R-District 31), is intended to discourage corporate discrimination against the firearm industry by prohibiting taxpayer monies from going to companies intent on maliciously starving our industry of essential services like banking, insurance, software, and payment processing. The most powerful business interest groups representing woke Wallstreet companies are doing all they can to kill the bill. For this reason, it is critical that senators hear from firearm industry members in the Show Me State. Every single call will make a difference.

Senate leadership will have a decision to make soon: either side with the worst of the woke banks like Bank of America, Citigroup, and JP Morgan, or side with the one industry in America necessary for their constituents to exercise a constitutionally enshrined right. Republican leaders in other states, including Kansas, have chosen to stand with the big banks. Do not allow this pure political game playing to prevail in Missouri. If the largest corporations in America are allowed to succeed with their sinister plan to destroy the firearm industry, the Second Amendment right guaranteed to the people will be nothing but an illusion.

SB 1048 would require companies to submit written verification that they do not have policies or practices that discriminate against the firearm industry before they are able to enter into large goods or services contracts with state or local government entities. This legislation is modeled after the FIND Act passed by the Texas legislature and signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott in 2021.

Please contact your state senator today and ask that he or she strongly support SB 1048. Mention that the state has a vested interest in ensuring the lawful firearm industry is not maliciously denied essential services because we are the singular industry necessary for the citizens to exercise a constitutionally enshrined right.

It is also inappropriate for state and local governments to compel their taxpayers to fund corporate gun control efforts aimed at diminishing the freedoms of those same taxpayers. Companies like Bank of America and PayPal may continue to discriminate against the firearm industry but they should not be able to financially benefit from Missouri taxpayers at the same time.
