Shocking Montana Law Shuts Down Big Brother Banks

Montana recently passed a law, Senate Bill 359, aimed at safeguarding the rights of firearm purchasers. The law explicitly prohibits financial institutions from treating firearm purchases differently than general merchandise transactions. This legislation ensures that firearms retailers in the state are not subjected to discriminatory financial practices based on their line of business. It was signed into law by Governor Greg Gianforte after being passed by the Legislature in April.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade group representing the firearm industry, commended Governor Gianforte for his commitment to protecting the Second Amendment rights of Montanans. They lauded the law as a crucial measure to prevent the creation of a back-door gun registry through the use of special Merchant Category Codes. The group believes that individuals who lawfully exercise their right to purchase firearms and ammunition should not be subjected to unwarranted scrutiny or have their personal information made accessible to government authorities.

Lawrence Keane, the Senior Vice President and General Counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, emphasized that Governor Gianforte’s actions ensure that Montanans are not unduly targeted by a radical, anti-gun agenda. The Foundation strongly opposes the weaponization of credit cards to discriminate against law-abiding gun owners. Keane asserted that individuals should be concerned about the contents of their wallet, focusing on their own financial choices, rather than being subjected to intrusive scrutiny based on their support of the Second Amendment.

Several other states, including Idaho, North Dakota, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Florida, have implemented similar laws to protect the rights of firearm purchasers. However, it is worth noting that federal legislation addressing this issue is currently pending, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation. These state-level initiatives demonstrate a commitment to upholding the principles enshrined in the Second Amendment and ensuring that individuals exercising their constitutional rights are treated fairly and without discrimination.

Conservatives believe in the fundamental right to bear arms, and the passage of laws like Montana’s Senate Bill 359 reflects their dedication to protecting that right. By preventing financial institutions from singling out firearms retailers and their customers, these laws promote equal treatment under the law and safeguard against potential infringements on Second Amendment rights. Upholding the principles of liberty and individual responsibility, conservatives strive to create an environment where law-abiding citizens can exercise their constitutional rights without undue interference or discrimination.
