Congress Voting to End Obama’s Worst Anti-Gun Program!

(Before It's News)

Fellow Conservative,

Let’s put the primary election aside for just a second. A piece of legislation was just introduced in the Senate that will absolutely dismantle one of the Obama administration’s worst anti-gun programs.

Operation Choke Point is Barack Obama’s program to put the gun industry out of business. Even though guns are completely legal and it is legal to buy and sell them, the Obama administration has classified firearms dealers in the same category as escort services, sellers of drugs and drug paraphernalia, and distributors of pornography.

They use this classification to make it impossible for gun sellers to do business. Banks won’t lend to them or even process account deposits/withdrawals because of the high-risk label. If they do, the DOJ has made it clear that the full weight of the Federal government will come down on them.

Two years ago, the House of Representatives slipped an amendment into the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2015 that completely defunded Operation Choke Point. Then, this year, the Department of (in)Justice and the FDIC announced they would no longer target lawful gun dealers. That was a lie.

The program is still ongoing. Gun stores are still being threatened by their financial institutions and some are having their accounts closed all together. What is happening is shameful.

Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have introduced a new piece of legislation that will end Obama’s unconstitutional anti-gun program once and for all!

Send your FaxBlast and DEMAND that Congress put a stop to Barack Obama’s anti-gun policies and save gun stores from going out of business!

The DOJ was previously ordered to stop the program and they agreed to. But more gun dealers are coming forward and claiming that the Obama administration’s assault against the Second Amendment is ongoing!

Operation Choke Point was never about stopping crime… it was about targeting an entire industry that the Obama administration philosophically and politically disagrees with. It was about finding new ways to infringe on your Second Amendment rights without having to go through Congress!

If the full weight of the Federal Government can go down on one industry and try to push lawful storefronts out of business, then this can happen to anyone. Yes, this is about STOPPING the federal government from targeting gun stores, but we also must ensure that this type of harassment is not allowed regardless of the legal industry that is targeted!

Our Second Amendment rights are precious. But unless you know how to manufacture your own firearms at home, the exercising of your right to keep and bear arms is largely dependent on firearm retail stores. That is why the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business and we must push back and stop this illegal and unconstitutional anti-gun program!

Congress moved to defund this abusive program because patriots like you answered the call and overwhelmed them with tens of thousands of faxes demanding that they act. However, Loretta Lynch’s DOJ has completely disregarded this and continued targeting gun stores anyway. Law-abiding businesses are being forced to close their doors because of this President’s anti-gun agenda.

Now, the Senate is going to finish the job. A similar bill passed the House of Representatives in February with bipartisan support. Depending on how many amendments are added, the bill will probably have to go back to the House for another vote.

What Obama is doing is criminal. He is essentially classifying gun stores as illegal/high-risk businesses and threatening banks and financial with huge fines if they do business with gun stores. All because of one man’s hatred of the 2nd Amendment!

Put an end to Operation Choke Point! Force Congress to STOP Obama from putting gun stores out of business!

This is a battle that has been two years in the making. Now it is time to take it home.

Every year, dozens of gun stores are being forced out of business simply because the President disagrees with gun ownership.

If we don’t put a stop to Operation Choke Point right now, your local gun store could be the next to be run out of business.

Don’t let Obama get away with this!

This is it! FaxBlast Congress and DEMAND they pass legislation to end Operation Choke Point once and for all!
