The Honorable Emily W. Murphy
General Services Administration
1800 F Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20405-0001

Dear Administrator Murphy:

In 2017, the General Services Administration (GSA) awarded Citibank a contract of more
than $700 billion to partially implement the federal charge card program, SmartPay 3. Because
of Citibank’s new guidelines targeting customers wishing to exercise their legal Second
Amendment rights, we urge you to cancel Citibank’s participation in the SmartPay 3 contract,
and award it to a company that does not unfairly restrict a customer’s constitutional rights.

Citibank’s new guidelines penalizes clients who do not align their sales policies to match
the lender’s restrictive new commercial firearms policy. Under their March 22 guidelines,
Citibank’s customers will have to meet restrictions that go far beyond federal requirements,
including background checks and age restrictions for buyers and would pressure sellers to take
high-capacity magazines and other accessories off their shelves. These restrictions run counter
to laws and regulations passed by Congress, and they infringe and discriminate against an
individual’s Second Amendment rights.

This flagrant attempt to undermine our fundamental rights by caving to radicals should
not be endorsed by our federal government. The federal government should instead do business
with companies that respect all of our constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment.
GSA should take all necessary steps to review and terminate its contract with Citibank unless
they rescind their guidelines, and rebid the SmartPay 3 contract.

Sincerely,
