U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines led a group of his colleagues today in introducing the “Firearm Industry Non-Discrimination Act” to stop the federal government from entering into contracts with entities that promote anti-Second Amendment policies.
“The Constitution is clear—the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, especially not by woke corporations that are taking Montanans’ hard-earned taxpayer dollars. We must send a clear message to these anti-Second Amendment companies that infringing on Americans’ Constitutional rights is unacceptable,” Daines said.

Senators Jim Risch (Idaho), Cindy Hyde-Smith (Miss.), Roger Marshall (Kans.), Rick Scott (Fla.), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Bill Cassidy (La.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), James Lankford (Okla.), Katie Britt (Ala.), Eric Schmitt (Mo.), Kevin Cramer (N.D.), Thom Tillis (N.C.) and John Hoeven (N.D.) co-sponsored the bill.
Daines previously introduced the “FIND Act” in June 2022.
Statements of Support:
“This legislation led by Senator Daines puts ‘woke’ corporations on notice that Americans’ God-given Second Amendment rights aren’t for sale. Corporations that choose to deny lawful businesses in the firearm industry essential services would no longer benefit from taxpayer-funded federal contracts, which they use to fund their unconstitutional gun control agenda. This bill will ensure public policies are crafted by the elected officials the American public sends to represent them and not unaccountable corporate executives. We thank Senator Daines for his leadership to ensure fairness in business, reasserting Congress’s role in ensuring the federal government isn’t picking marketplace winners and losers based on politics and protecting the ability of a lawful industry to compete for goods and services without artificial and agenda-driven barriers.” – Lawrence G. Keane, National Shooting Sports Foundation Senior Vice President and General Counsel.
“GOA is thankful to Senator Steve Daines for introducing this legislation to protect the firearms industry. Financial institutions and other companies that discriminate against the Bill of Rights don’t deserve the People’s business. We must ensure that the federal government doesn’t spend our tax dollars lining the pockets of those ‘woke’ corporations who choose to discriminate on the basis of Second Amendment-protected activities.” – Aidan Johnston, Gun Owners of America Director of Federal Affairs
