Once again, there is harmful legislation being proposed by the federal government. H.R. 6139, This bill, if passed, would allow huge companies to obtain federal charters that allow them to operate in all 50 states without having to abide bythe laws of the state they are doing business in.

This stinks!

This bill, if passed, would create an unlevel playing field. Smaller, independent businesses would be governed by the same laws they always have been. State and local laws that protect consumers by spelling out the rates and fees chargedlength of loans, hold periods, police reporting requirements and much more,While huge corporations and banks will be allowed, under this federal law, to roll into town and operate however they feel like it, withoutany concern for state or local laws governing everyone else.

Needless to say, this would bad for our business. But it would also be bad for our customers. If small, independent community pawn shops are forced out of business by this legislation, customers will be forced to deal with huge megacorporations, the same types who brought us the subprime housing mess, and have been getting bailed out while the middle class is getting wiped out.

Imagine having to negotiate to sell some gold or get a quick pawn loan with the local branch of Huge Bank USA. Not gonna be fun, but if this law passes, it may be your only option.

You can help though.  Contact your federal senators and congresspeople todayAnd tell them you are opposed to H.R. 6139.
