Citigroup recently announced that they will now be placing restrictions on their clients who are selling guns.
Citi is requiring all of its gun-selling clients to only sell firearms to those who have passed a background check, are over the age of 21, and will be putting a halt on sales of bump stocks and high-capacity magazines.
Their decision came just two days before the March for Our Lives event, where hundreds of thousands of people came together and marched for increased gun control following the tragic Parkland shooting.
Well now, one congressman is responding.
On Thursday, Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.) penned a letter to “terminate Citibank’s contract because of their anti-Second Amendment policies.” Rokita led the writing of the letter, which received 15 congressional cosigners.
“Citibank’s new guidelines penalizes clients who do not align their sales policies to match the lender’s restrictive new commercial firearms policy,” the letter said. “These restrictions run counter to laws and regulations passed by Congress, and they infringe and discriminate against an individual’s Second Amendment rights.”
