Destroy Operation Choke Point

Holder's Mustache                           










About a year ago, the Second Amendment community was rocked by news that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) had teamed up with Attorney General Eric (the Hun) Holder to utterly destroy firearms manufacturers and dealers by cutting off all credit and banking relationships with them.

For its part, the FDIC categorized gun and ammunition sales as a "high-risk business," lumping it in with drug dealers, pornographers, and Ponzi scheme operators -- all of which it was working to completely destroy.

So now, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has introduced legislation to shut the doors of Operation Choke Point.  Rubio's bill, S. 477, would defund Operation Choke Point -- permanently.  It would insure that the FDIC didn't use "fees" to fund a program which could no longer go on with appropriated funds. And it would prohibit the Attorney General and the FDIC from reestablishing "Choke Point" under another name.

Furthermore, Rubio is committed to not just allow his legislation to lie dormant.  He understands that he may have to add the proposal as an amendment to a must-pass bill.  This is exactly what we will need to overcome a potential presidential veto.

So please contact your Senators and urge them to cosponsor S. 477.
