Idaho: House Passes Gun Owner Credit Card Privacy Bill

Gun Rights

On Monday, the House voted 66-4 to pass House Bill 295, to prohibit credit card issuers from surveilling gun owners. The bill will now go to the Senate for further consideration. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT HB 295.

House Bill 295 is in response to the MCC rule and the potential tracking of firearm purchases. Since the federal government is prohibited by law from creating and maintaining a registry of gun owners, anti-gun radicals are attempting to outsource this effort to the private financial sector. HB 295 prohibits financial institutions and their agents from requiring the use of a firearms-specific MCC to distinguish purchases at a firearms retailer from a general merchandise retailer or a sporting goods retailer and prohibits the misuse of payment card processing systems to surveil, report, or disclose these legal transactions.

Again, please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT HB 295.
