RAHM EMANUEL URGES MAJOR BANKS TO STOP SERVING GUN MAKERS UNLESS THEY SUPPORT ‘COMMON SENSE’ GUN CONTROL
And people should listen to him because he and his preferred methods have done so much to improve the safety of Chicago and it’s residents … Not
” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is urging two of the biggest financial institutions in the country to stop supporting gun manufacturers unless the companies agree to “common sense reforms” on firearms. The issue of gun control aside, the request sounds a little like blackmail.
Emanuel reportedly sent letters to the CEOs of Bank of America and TD Bank urging them to stop lines of credit, financing for acquisitions and expansions and financial advising unless they get on board with gun control. Among other things, the former Obama advisor wants gun makers to support criminal background checks on all gun sales.”
Once again the mayor of a major US city , a public employee mind you , takes it upon himself to try and dictate policy to private businesses . Remind us what on earth is American about public officials deliberately trying to stifle the very American businesses and citizens that pay their bloody salaries .

Perhaps we should take stock of Herr Emanuel’s ways and put them to use for the forces of good and the free market . Why don’t the stockholders of the banking business call on their institutions to stop facilitating the continual degradation of the value of America’s equity and investments by helping to fund the politicians that are foisting this historic pyramid scheme on us and giving the bill to our children ?
