Obama Cracking Down on Weapons Manufacturers

, , ,


The Truth About Knives:

Operation Choke-point is the scandal-ridden Department of Justice’s initiative aimed at punishing making business difficult for those industries they don’t like. Payday lenders (ok, these can be dicey but are still better than loan-sharks), coin dealers (precious metals throw a wrench in their fiat currency scam), and firearms manufacturers and dealers (because…guns are icky and stuff) have all been targeted by the Obama’s highly-politicized DOJ. Since the Administration’s frontal assaults on the Second Amendment have not yielded the results they want, they have resorted to Executive Branch action to try to move the ball. In this they are pressuring financial institutions to deny banking services to the targeted industries.

While Congress is trying to put an end this abuse, Operation Choke Point is expanding into new realms. This past Friday Hogue Inc. announced that Wells Fargo has refused to do business with them, because they ostensibly manufacture “weapons”.

Hat tip to Glenn Reynolds.

I didn’t even know that Hogue Inc. made knives. They are best known for high quality handgun grips.

This is the sort of thing that really does lend credence to charges that Republicans in Congress do nothing with majorities. Operation Choke Point is an outrageous Obama Administration Executive Order overreach inflicting radical left-wing ideology on all sorts of legal American businesses. It started in 2013 and there has obviously been plenty of time to investigate it, denounce it, and abolish it by legislative action. The very idea that a presidential administration can attempt to put businesses it does not like out of business by denying them access to banking services is totally appalling.

Ironic and troubling that we all know this will continue and even accelerate under a president Clinton but will be reversed under a president Trump. What to do, what to do??


Is that so? How can anyone know what Trump would do? He was never previously conservative. He has taken lots of liberal positions on the record over time. He has spoken out in favor of gun control, in fact. He is pro-Big Government. And he lies and contradicts himself all the time.


so another reason to vote for Trump. Certainly wouldn’t see the program end on the executive side with Clinton.


JDZ, Trump has shown no signs of being an anti-2nd Amendment zealot like Clinton and Obama.

Keep in mind, as Sec. of State, there is no way Clinton didn’t know of the ATF facilitating guns across the Mexican border. Not only from the diplomatic perspective, but also as the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, responsible for any firearms crossing international borders has their own investigators. No way a US origin gun shows up in Mexico they don’t look at for illegal export.
