Gun Rights

On Tuesday, April 30thSenate Bill 281, the gun owner financial privacy bill, was passed in the House by a margin of 85-5 and now heads to the governor’s desk for a signature. NRA thanks Senator Tim Melson, Representative Shane Stringer, House Speaker Nathaniel Ledbetter, Senate President Will Ainsworth, and all legislators who voted to pass this critical protection for firearm owners.

SB 281 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. For more information click here.

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.
