Rokita Leads Letter To Terminate Citibank’s Contract Because of Their Anti-Second Amendment Policies

Congressman Todd Rokita led a letter with 15 congressional cosigners to the General Services Administration (GSA) calling to rebid their contract with Citibank due to the company’s new sale policies that target customers wishing to exercise their legal Second Amendment rights.

“This flagrant disregard for American citizens and their God-given Second Amendment rights cannot be tolerated,” said Congressman Todd Rokita. “Those who seek to undermine those God-given rights do not deserve taxpayer dollars and should be denied federal contracts. Congress has sworn to uphold the Constitution, and it is paramount that we stand united for the American people and their right to bear arms.”

Citibank’s new guidelines penalize clients who do not align their sales policies to match the lender’s restrictive new commercial firearms policy. Congressman Rokita believes the federal government should instead do business with companies that respect all of our constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment. Rokita’s letter is fully endorsed by The National Rifle Association (NRA). You can read the full letter here and Citibank’s new policies here.

PPSS Group have released their latest body armour demo video today and it is the most powerful and most dynamic to date.

Witnessing a CEO who is willing to be subjected to assaults using knives, expandable batons, machetes, baseball bats and hypodermic needles is a very unique experience. He clearly trusts his products.

Having frequently produced product demo videos over the past few years, their CEO Robert Kaiser wanted to make sure this latest production really highlights his body armour’s true performance:

“Our mission statement is ‘to protect frontline professionals from human threats’ and this new video is once again physical evidence on what our body armour are really capable of.”

“Our objective is to protect and maybe even save the lives of those who protect us and serve their countries, and body armour made by PPSS Group will precisely do that.”

The firm’s stab resistant vests, as featured in the video, have made a worldwide impression due to their unmatched protection from blunt force trauma and unlimited shellfire. They are now being issued to several international homeland security agencies, such as the prison service, border control, immigration and customs, as well as privately owned security and facility management firms.

PPSS Group is headquartered in the UK but its body armours can be purchased via their international licensed distribution partners or their head office in North Yorkshire, England.
