The Anti's have figured out it takes too long for the wheels of government to turn, so they are lobbying the private sector to reach their goal......How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.........

A fascinating response from some Representatives to this move by the BoA. They realized that BoA took its lead from CitiBank. The GSA needs to begin considering whether financial institutions support the rights of Americans. Same holds for citizens.

"Sixteen Republican congressmen are asking the General Services Administration (GSA) to reevaluate a $700 billion contract with Citibank as a result of the financial institution’s 'anti-Second Amendment policies.'

"The congressmen, led by Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita, sent a letter to GSA Administrator Emily Murphy on Wednesday, asking her to terminate the contract in response to Citibank’s March announcement restricting its clients participation in gun sales.

"'In 2017, the General Services Administration (GSA) awarded Citibank a contract of more than $700 billion to partially implement the federal charge card program, SmartPay 3,' the congressmen wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

"'Because of Citibank’s new guidelines targeting customers wishing to exercise their legal Second Amendment rights, we urge you to cancel Citibank’s participation in the SmartPay 3 contract, and award it to a company that does not unfairly restrict a customer’s constitutional rights,' it reads."

Be interesting to see if this flies. If it does, CitiBank

They are all about "civic responsibility" UNTIL it taps into their bottom line. Maybe this will go somewhere.

I say we fight fire with fire. Everytime they come up with a new way to restrict sales, everybody run out and buy a gun, or a bunch of ammo.
