VSSA Life Member Steve Halbrook on Big Banks Denying Services to Gun Companies

Gun control activists, frustrated by their inability to pass federal gun control laws, are pressuring the nation's largest banks to refuse to do business with firearms manufacturers and retailers. Such policies circumvent the Constitution and federal law.  VSSA Life Member, Second Amendment attorney and scholar Steve Halbrook is taking part in a pro-con debate on the issue in several newspapers. On Friday, Halbrook appeared on NRATV's Cam and Company to discuss his OP/ED and the issue.  He describes Aristotle's warnings about oligarchs - the consequences of concentration of power in the hands of a few. He said that's what's happening with banks like Bank of America and CitiBank, taking it upon themselves to supersede federal and state laws. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is doing something similar in New York, punishing insurance companies in an effort to suppress the lawful First Amendment speech of the National Rifle Association. The ACLU agrees. Steve says the gun control radicals don't care how their goals are achieved.
