Leftists, Big Government bureaucrats, and Democrats have been trying to destroy the Second Amendment for longer than most people have been alive.
Now major Fortune 500 corporations are joining in the effort to deprive honest Americans of the right to firearm ownership.
But Florida has big plans to defend the Second Amendment from further attack and Democrats are shaking their fists in rage.
Big banks are attacking the Second Amendment
In recent months, it’s become painfully clear that our Constitutional rights aren’t just under attack from the radical Left and the government but also from major corporations.
In order to be woke, many Fortune 500 corporations and other multinational companies are colluding with both Big Government and the radical leftists to trample on our Constitutional rights.
Specifically, the right to bear arms is being undermined by tracking codes being used in the financial sector.
The International Organization for Standardization recently approved the addition of new merchant category codes for the sale of firearms and ammunition.
These codes are reported to banks when a purchase is made by credit card.
Just picture your bank statement: fuel, food, entertainment, guns, ammo, survival gear, etc.
The ISO adopted these codes in response to pressures from gun-control radicals and Democrat lawmakers.
Several of the anti-gun groups released a statement celebrating the changes to the retail category.
They said that using the codes would pave “the way for credit card companies to help law enforcement preempt mass shootings and firearm trafficking by identifying suspicious patterns of firearms and ammunition purchases.”
In other words if you purchase “too much ammo” some government agency could be alerted to come arrest you and take away your guns.
Florida moves to ban data collection related to firearms
Now Florida is moving to prevent banks from violating Constitutional protections in a major way.
Three Republican officials in Florida have put together a proposal that would ban tracking firearm purchases and ammunition purchases.
They say that collecting the data violates the Second Amendment – and it could also violate the Fourth.
The three point out the use of the codes would also effectively create a registry of legal purchasers without their consent.
They also see the threat as one that could be coming from collusion of Washington, D.C. with their special interest groups.
“We are blessed to live in the free state of Florida where our Second Amendment rights are valued and protected, but Democrats in Washington continue to try to chip away at these rights—and we must stay vigilant,” said Wilton Simpson, one of the three officials.
Firms cannot “covertly” create gun registry of Floridians
Simpson called the suggested proposal “a line in the sand” and said it “tells multinational progressive financial institutions and their allies in Washington that they cannot covertly create a backdoor to firearm registry of Floridians . . .”
Florida is also building a bigger case that could very well challenge the use of tracking codes on a national level.
Someone from Florida who may purchase a firearm in Georgia would be extended the same Constitutional protections.
Florida State Senator, Danny Burgess who is working with Simpson to pass the Florida Arms and Ammo Act.
He recently said, “This is the United States of America” and that the issue is “nonnegotiable,” promising that they will continue to “fight to protect the rights of Floridians.”
