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:
â€œThis administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent â€˜reputational riskâ€™ to do business with,â€ said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP. â€œSo 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.â€
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.
