Republicans Target Citibank’s $700 Billion Contract Over ‘Anti-Second Amendment Policies’
A baker can’t refuse to bake a gay wedding cake, but Citibank can refuse to finance gun store purchases? When a company’s mission becomes one to silence free speech, it’s time to silence that company.

I have led a letter along with 15 other Members calling on GSA to terminate Citibank’s contract due to their anti-Second Amendment policies. You can read more about it here: https://t.co/TEY1EaAZuG
