In Voicemail, Bank Says It No Longer Lends to Firearms Dealers

The stories of two businessmen who recently were denied banking services because they sell firearms suggest a secretive government program called Operation Choke Point still affects industries across the nation that the Obama administration considered undesirable.

In one case, a large bank in New England denied a line of credit to a former police officer who started a gun and tactical business in Monroe, Conn., saying it “no longer lends to firearms dealers.”

    I hope they stop lending to white people, too.

    The dealer should put a bill board outside his business telling his potential customers what the banks and government are up to. It would give him so much business he wouldn’t need the bank.

      Excellent point.

    Wow. But look what happens if Betty the Christian baker refuses to bake a wedding cake for two fags or lesbians. Consistency? Hmm……

    P2P lending?

    It’s a real shame banks well do business with Iran & Saudi Arabia, but not patriotic citizens.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Perhaps it’s time the police no longer investigate bank robberies.

      Exactly since firearms would be required.

    Small local banks are hanging by a thread, so whatever Emperor Barry wants, Emperor Barry gets.
