McMillan Group International, a firearms manufacturer in Phoenix Arizona, had their Bank of America account, which had been active for 12 years, cancelled last year. Bank of America also dropped American Spirit Arms in Scottsdale Arizona.
Black Rifle Armory in Henderson Nevada had its bank accounts frozen just this month.
These are only a few of the thousands of firearms and ammunition manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in the United States who have had their bank accounts cancelled or frozen under a secret Department of justice program known by the code word "Operation Choke Point."
Operation Choke Point was originally conceived – or at least touted – in 2013 as an attack against unscrupulous online lending scammers by having the DOJ and FDIC lean on banks to restrict their access to funds. But Barack Obama and Eric Holder either originally intended or quickly saw the opportunity to expand the program to financially starve any industry they wanted to kill – starting with the firearms and ammunition industry.
In 1774, the British restricted imports to the American colonies of firearms, gunpowder, flints, and even Potassium Nitrate, an ingredient of gunpowder. But they couldn't stop the colonists from manufacturing their own rifles, mining their own flint, and even manufacturing their own gunpowder using Sodium Nitrate mined from guano deposits in Southern caves.
Obama is trying to go George III one better and kill off manufacturing of all firearms and ammunition in the United States. And he must be stopped.
Even if you were deluded by the "guns are evil" propaganda, you'd have to recognize the danger in allowing the government to control the access to finances of a private, legal business. What other legal enterprises might this administration – or the next – decide to freeze out of business? Churches? Rival businesses of campaign contributors? Opposition political action groups? Imagine a government capable of financially freezing Ford, Toyota, and Nissan out of the U. S. market in order to force us all to buy from Government (formerly General) Motors.
Operation Choke Point must be stopped, and the first step in doing that is to expose it. Please send a copy of or the llink to this article to everyone on your contact list. Then email, write, or call your Senators and Representatives and let them know you are aware of this nefarious plot and you expect them to do something to derail it.
We must hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang seperately. – Ben Franklin
