About a year ago, the Second Amendment community was rocked by news that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) had teamed up with Attorney General Eric Holder to utterly destroy firearms manufacturers and dealers by cutting off all credit and banking relationships with them.
For its part, the FDIC categorized gun and ammunition sales as a “high-risk business,” lumping it in with drug dealers, pornographers, and Ponzi scheme operators — all of which it was working to completely destroy.
Holder, in turn, would provide the “muscle” — using a program called Operation Choke Point to make sure banks “got the message.”
Senator David Vitter (R-LA) and Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) soon got appropriations language to defund Operation Choke Point. But when Holder promised to be a “good boy” and the FDIC removed guns from its “high-risk list,” the appropriators relented and allowed the program to continue.
FK – Gee, the republicrats just won’t learn will they? Compromise with “Liberal”(commie) trash means moving in it’s direction, towards slavery. We should be hanging the creatures, not compromising with them.
