Oklahoma FIND Act to be Heard in Senate Committee
Please call your state senator today and request support for HB 2218

The NSSF®- supported Firearm Industry Nondiscrimination (FIND) Act, HB 2218, has passed the full Oklahoma State House of Representatives by a vote of 74-19. This legislation, sponsored by State Rep. Kevin West (R-Moore), 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. HB 2218 will now be heard in the Senate General Government Committee tomorrow. It is critical that senators hear from firearm industry members in the Sooner State.

HB 2218 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 HB 2218. 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 Wells Fargo and PayPal may continue to discriminate against the firearm industry, but they should not be able to financially benefit from Oklahoma taxpayers at the same time.
