The Patriot: Bolstered Privacy Laws & Gun Legislation in Brazil



Fourteen states have enacted laws that uphold Second Amendment rights by ensuring the financial privacy of gun owners. These statutes prevent credit and debit card companies from treating firearms retailers differently from other merchants.

For instance, Georgia introduced the Georgia Firearms Industry Nondiscrimination Act, ensuring that firearm transactions are treated like any other—a response to the 2022 introduction of a new firearms-specific merchant category code.
