Rahm Emanuel To Banks: "Stop Supporting Gun Makers!"

Rahm Emanuel To Banks: "Stop Supporting Gun Makers!"

January 25, 2013 9:28 AM

CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is putting more pressure on gun makers to get behind his push for an assault weapons ban and criminal background checks for gun purchasers.

This time, he wants to go after their bottom line.

Emanuel is pushing two major financial institutions to stop their financial backing of gun makers, unless those companies support “commonsense reforms, including requiring criminal background checks on all gun sales.”

The mayor is urging that banks to stop lines of credit, financing for acquisitions and expansions and financial advising.

In a letter sent Friday to the CEOs of Bank Of America and TD Bank, Emanuel said: “In the past, the gun industry has stood in opposition to these safety measures. They opposed a ban on assault weapons on America’s streets, opposed a ban on military-style clips, opposed a criminal background check on all gun purchases and opposed any effort to crack down on criminal gun traffickers.”

Mr R Emanuel....

You should keep your mouth closed.The more I read of Rahm Emanuels attempts at dismantling the constitution,the more I think he is a total moronic idiot.And I can not understand how anyone like him can get elected.He must have enough money to buy the election,just like the guy in washington,dc.

$$$ Lobbyists, Rothschild Zionists, and

his Communist background got him and his good buddy Obama elected.

Disarming America and the world is all part of the Communist Manifesto and Agenda 21, or whatever it is now being called to hide the Agenda.

They want no resistance to the police state and global tyranny.

so to stop supporting banks

we have to stop supporting government?
we can boycott all we want, they can't fail.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Together, we have more clout

IF..the banks go along with this, let's all stop using credit cards. Use cash!

60% [?] of the people limiting the use of their cards has to surpass the loss from that threat.


I wish this clown

would just go away!
