SB 2223/HB 2762 prohibits the use of firearm/ammunition specific merchant category codes by payment processors. This is an important protection for gun owners, protecting private purchasing information from abuse by third parties. 

NRA thanks Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson (R-SD 27), the sponsor of the Senate bill, and Representative Rusty Grills (R-HD77), the sponsor of the House bill, for their efforts to keep the bills moving through the legislative process in both chambers.

Collecting firearm retailer financial transaction data amounts to surveillance and registration of law-abiding gun owners. Those promoting this scheme are in favor of firearm and gun owner registrations. Therefore, it should be assumed that the goal of this program is to share all collected firearm retailer MCC data with government authorities and potentially private third parties that may include gun control organizations and anti-gun researchers.

Please stay tuned to the NRA-ILA website and your inbox for updates as these critical bills progress in the Volunteer State.
