More Evidence Mounting DOJ is Targeting Firearms Industry

Kelly Riddell with the Washington Times is adding up the evidence, and it’s becoming more and more apparently that indeed, Eric Holder’s DOJ is targeting the firearms industry by cutting off its access to financial services and the banking system:

“This administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent ‘reputational risk’ to do business with,” said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP. “So financial institutions are reacting to this extraordinary enforcement arsenal by being ultra-conservative in who they do business with: Any companies that engage in any margin of risk as defined by this administration are being dropped.”

Read the whole thing. While we don’t have any direct evidence the industry is being targeted, it’s all adding up to something rotten at the DOJ. All this is ostensibly in the name of fighting fraud, but it’s just a little to convenient for the Administration, if you ask me.

    Adding up to something rotten? This is something like item number 437 on the list of “sketchy shit going on at DoJ.” Even worse is that the criminals have stopped even attempting to hide it at this point…

    The firearms industry could put a stop to it by going eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth – the whole industry should stop selling arms and ammunition to the weaponized bureaucracies of the federal government.

    Reputational risk? Let the firearms manufacturers turn it right back and say to the government, “We feel selling weapons to any federal agency other than the military represents a risk to our reputation.”

    Many manufacturers protested bans by refusing to sell to police, but they generally exempted the federal government. I see no reason to do so. Who the hell needs an FDA swat team anyway? So no more SBRs, no more automatic weapons, no more pistols, shotguns, or hell, even pepper spray canisters for them.

      Yep. This is the right response.

      Also, it is seriously past time for the GOP-controlled House to start shaving down DOJ’s budget to two staplers and a half a cartridge of printer ink.

    “Operation Choke Point” is the name of it.

    We need a bank for conservatives , porn, pot and gun industry. Would the NRA be interested in creating a bank?
