Skip to comments.Obama Inc Trying to Use Banks to Destroy Gun Manufacturers
Posted on 01/25/2013 8:21:44 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
There were fairly clear policy rules once upon a time. If you wanted to pass gun control, you would get up, use a bunch of kids as props and put in a Senate bill that would get the job done. Thats still being done, but its only the tip of the iceberg.
Obama Inc. is consolidating control over the economy which puts its minions in the position of being able to make policy through economic pressure and policy. Under Socialism, you dont have to pass a law, you just have to use your economic control to make the companies enforce the law.
Growing government control over banks and investment companies, directly and indirectly, allows those institutions to be used to target firearms manufacturers.
Cerberus was bullied into dropping the Freedom Group which includes Remington and Bushmaster. Bushmaster has become a special target for the anti-2nd amendment movement. Now Rahm Emanuel is demanding that TD Bank and Bank of America end their lines of credit to firearms manufacturers unless they come out in support of Obamas war on the Bill of Rights.

Please allow me to change: Communists destroying America for their own power.
Communists are cowards and incapable of direct conflict. They know good and damned well that they would rile the American bear into action if they came at it directly, so they’re trying to trap it and kill it to make us comply.
We are rapidly reaching the point that the Founders feared would require a Second Amendment.
I wonder if the folks who sat home because they didn’t want to vote for a Mormon moderate have a clue yet as to how badly they screwed up?
Or your position is that a Mormon baby killer, gun grabber, homo facilitator is better than a non-Mormon one???
“I wonder if the folks who sat home because they didnt want to vote for a Mormon moderate have a clue yet as to how badly they screwed up?”
Or how about the ones who wasted their votes on the green party or on Ron Paul over “principle”. I would have gone along with that if he had a chance to win, but to know he wouldn’t and that you were giving your vote to Obama is plain dumb.
Sadly, it seems near.

Obviously not by the response on this thread.
I think he would have been better than Obunghole on the economy, regulations, taxes and some other stuff. I have no reason to think he would have been appreciably better than what we have now in the areas you mentioned and he may have even been worse as the Republican House would have gone along with him.
Don’t own a bank, rob one.
Under Obama’s policies, it will soon make more sense to rob banks, since often bank robbers succeed, than to own banks, on which Obama will impose increasingly profit-losing regulations, making it impossible for banks to succeed.
The 2 opposing forces are, first, Obama's effort to squeeze financial interests (lending and investors) out of the gun market and, second, raging demand for guns and ammo resulting from Obama's attacks on gun ownership.
The most likely result is that the larger gun companies are pressured by big lenders and big investors causing them to divest and splintering the industry into smaller companies.
Small is a great place to be for the gun industry. Yes, more competition, but frankly demand is so incredible that the additional competition won't even be noticed.
