Sen. John Kennedy Opposing the Big Banks’ Gun Control Agenda [VIDEO]
Senator John Kennedy talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright about his efforts to oppose moves by some of the countries biggest banks - Citigroup among them - to place restrictions on their gun-dealing retail clients.
From Baton Rouge' The Advocate:
Sen. John Kennedy has placed a pair of the country's biggest banks in his crosshairs over new policies that placed restrictions on gun-selling bank clients in the wake of a deadly Florida school shooting.
Kennedy, R-Louisiana, has berated Citigroup Inc. in a series of letters over the past month accusing the massive New York-based multinational bank of attacking Americans' Second Amendment rights after the bank announced restrictions for gun-dealing retail clients last month.
Citigroup said it wouldn't work with businesses that sell firearms to anyone under the age of 21 or don't always require a background check. The bank said it's also dumping clients that sell high-capacity magazines or bump stocks, a device that allows semiautomatic rifles to fire like automatics.
Kennedy says the changes in the banks policy is patently unfair, adding," There shouldn't be 'blue banks' or 'red banks', there should just be banks."
