Republican Montana Sen. Steve Daines introduced legislation Wednesday that would prohibit the federal government from working with and or providing contracts to companies that do not support the second amendment.

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the bill, which is titled the Firearm Industry Non-Discrimination (FIND) Act. The legislation would prevent any entity that discriminates against firearm businesses or associations from contracting or subcontracting with the federal government.

The U.S. Constitution bars the federal government from discriminating against firearm ownership. The bill would specifically amend Chapter 47 of title 41 USC by adding a new section. The section would require the head of an executive agency to include a clause in each federal contract for goods or services to certify that the contractor has no policy that discriminates against a firearm industry or firearm trade association.

“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 told the Caller before introducing the bill.
