Democrats attack gun manufacturers access to banking

Gun_Control_TrioVice-President Biden sent an email to supporters today in which he touted the Obama Administration’s efforts to pass gun control.

In the email, Biden continued to pander to gun-owning Democrats by promising that “Every step we intend to take will preserve the tradition of responsible gun ownership in our country and uphold the Second Amendment.

Having read that, Democrat gun owners should rest assured that their precious hunting rifles are safe … right? After all, it is only those black, scary rifles that Democrats want to ban … isn’t it?

Well … while Vice-President Biden is doing his best to divide and conquer gun owners, former Obama Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel is trying to have banks drop gun manufacturers as customers unless the gun manufacturers agree to support the Administration’s gun control policies. If successful, such a maneuver would be a death knell for those manufacturers who refuse to become puppets of the government.

Now we need you and other commercial banks to join this fight for safer streets. Collectively we can send a clear and unambiguous message to the entire gun industry that investors will no longer financially support companies that profit from gun violence.

I have to ask those gun owners who continue to vote for Democrats … if the gun manufacturers go out of business, who will make your precious hunting rifles?

  1. Family Gun Owning Tradition for Decades says:

    Emanuel is the mayor of Chicago, right? You’re making an awfully big leap, IMO. I know you think it’s justifiable. Perhaps your argument would be more powerful if you just attacked Emanuel for his 1st amendment use of persuasion around freedom of association issues, while leaving those unaffiliated with the governance of the City of Chicago out of it.

    • John Pierce says:

      I believe that the “Chicago way” is intimately involved in the current push for gun control. Chicago politicians are probably more adept at hardball politics, including divide and conquer, than any others in the world. I do not for a minute believe that Emanuel’s communication with the banks does not have the tacit approval of the Administration. However, this is my opinion only and I do not have verifiable facts to back up my belief. Thankfully, as an editorial piece, ironclad proof is not required. :)

  2. Grapeshot says:

    The “Chicago way” will ultimately disappear once it gets into and through the courts.

    Meanwhile, I will utilize the Virgina forms of gun control: an active retention holster and a firm grip when deployed. :)

    Joe Biden was in town today at VCU & protected with guns – what a snow job.

  3. They could always go to offshore banking .. that might have some further advantages, too.
