Los Angeles Demanding That City Contractors Disclose Ties to the NRA

 

According to Reason this is a big “no no.”

(From Reason)

So the ordinance violates the First Amendment just because of its disclosure requirement alone. And it also invites First Amendment discrimination lawsuits by individual contractors who are denied contracts after they disclose that they deal with the NRA, just as an employer’s asking applicants to disclose their religion would invite religious discrimination lawsuits by applicants who aren’t hired (and even in the absence of specific regulations barring such question).
