U.S.A. -( Later today, the Senate Finance Committee will hear House Bill 2473, to discourage banks from discriminating against the firearm industry. Please use the Request to Speak application (RTS) on the Arizona State Legislature website to ask them to SUPPORT HB 2473. RTS is the most efficient and effective way to contact committee members regarding Second Amendment legislation. It is imperative that you create an account and continue utilizing this tool throughout the 2022 legislative session.

House Bill 2473 prohibits public entities from entering into contracts worth $100,000 or greater with businesses unless they certify that they do not discriminate against firearm businesses. Anti-gun banks and their executives have expressed interest in denying services to the firearm industry as a way to further their political agenda and impose gun control by making such business impossible when legislatures won’t bend to their will. Banks should evaluate firearm businesses like any other business and consider financial risk, rather than ideology, in their decisions on providing services. This ensures that Arizona taxpayer money does not go to such businesses.

Again, please use the Request to Speak application (RTS) on the Arizona State Legislature website to ask the committee to SUPPORT HB 2473.

There is only one answer for why these banks don’t want to loan money for guns and ammo, they are RACIST. See I said it, now they need to back down and lend out the money to show in good faith that they are not following today’s norm. It blows me away how the double standards are. You have a cake maker that doesn’t want to make a cake for a gay couple in OreGONE and he gets sued and loses but you can have a bank stand there and say we won’t loan money for guns and ammo and… Read more »

Conservatives and other liberty loving people need to boycott any institution that stands against liberty. For some reason many conservatives and the majority of Republicans are adverse to the boycott. Speak with your buying power. Boycott those who want to boycott your liberty. It is time that folks wake up to the fact that the Progressive New Left has nearly gutted what was once a great Republic. This dry rot stated in the 1970’s with the publication of the Prairie Fire Manifesto and has incrementally gutted nearly every American institution. Folks who have been calling themselves conservatives and republicans have… Read more »


For some reason many conservatives and the majority of Republicans are adverse to the boycott. you hit the nail on the head. I have been stating for a couple years now to friends and about one year that I have been on Ammoland that we need to start our own businesses and buy, sell republican and those that have the money are finally starting to step up and make it happen.. President Trump opened a new face page or what ever you call it, others are opening web sites where republican views don’t get taken down because the left, fake… Read more »

I like how you worked in the race card, even if it doesn’t quite fit. And poor fit never stopped the marxist socialists in this country. We do need to use their own techniques against them.


Lol, that was the point, they put the race card on any and everything they can when they run out of arguments to legitimize their point and turn it around into something that confounds us. No one wants to be called or deemed a racist. To me, a black or anyone calling me a racist has the same contempt as me calling a black the N word or a mexican a S word and I FEEL that they should not be calling me a cracker because it is just as racist even though we all know only white people can… Read more »

The marxist socialists know that no one likes to be accused and will drop what they are doing to defend themselves. People that make false accusations to get the upper hand are probably secret socialists.
And Yes, we need to start using their own techniques against them.

Well so much for being pro business


And who exactly is supposed to be ‘pro business’ in all occasions? I am pro liberty. If business stands on the side of liberty I am good with business. But if business stands against liberty I am against business? You make the false assumption that Constitutional Conservatives are somehow universally pro business? Tell me, are you ‘pro business’ when it comes to Donald Trump? How about when it comes to the Biden crime family?

Stand for principles. Not ideology.


You should seriously consider moving to Khalifornia or Oregone. I believe you would be much happier there. Full of like-minded individuals.


I would love to hear how you think this is anti-business.


Very compelling crocodile tears, Comrade!


Bill is very “pro-business”. Bill explicitly states what businesses can get dinged for and allows them to rehabilitate their business practices. Bill does not restrict non-compliant businesses practices in any way, only sets limits on who the state will support. Pro-business is to support capitalism and individuals right to make their own decisions. Does not require state to hand over money to anyone. biden’s administration (and minions in aft) could take a page from this book – rather than making secret regulations (with force of law and draconian punishments) – then secretly searching for violations of these laws no-one knows… Read more »
