On the heels of recent mass shootings, Citi-bank and Bank of America have taken the law into their own hands and are infringing upon the 2nd Amendment rights of their customers in the process.
Weeks ago, Citi-bank stated it would be putting restrictions on businesses that sell guns and Bank of America stated they would stop lending money to gun manufactures. Two pro-gun groups have had enough of the gun hating banks and are fighting back.
“Gun Owners of America (GOA), a Washington-based lobby group, has asked lawmakers to add a provision to a draft law rewriting bank rules that it says would prevent “gun-hating banks” from “discriminating” against firearms makers.
Citigroup and Bank of America are threatening our Second-Amendment rights. They do not realize how much more there is to lose than to gain, by their new policies, said GOA’s executive director, Erich Pratt.”
The NRA is also alerting its members and non-members of the actions of each bank in an advertising push. The decision by these banks gets awfully close to anti-discrimination laws. While the debate, about gun control, rages on it’s clear that banks and other companies have decided to take the law into their own hands and could end up losing a lot of business.
