I am confused. I thought the list included firearms sales. You have expanded it to ownership.

Firearms sales are socially acceptable here. We have private transactions and love gun shows, too.

Another gun seller says his firearms business was forced to shut down its bank account as a result of the government’s secretive initiative known as Operation Choke Point.

This time, he’s offering audio recordings to prove it.

Mike Schuetz is a former state employee who worked as a probation and parole officer for eight years in Hawkins, Wis.

In an audio recording released by Schuetz, a Heritage Credit Union bank teller told him: “We have to answer to the examiners. Whoever they are.”

Schuetz wasn’t satisfied with that response and asked to speak with a manager about why the bank was closing an account for a legal and legitimate business.

A regional manager explained to Schuetz that federal examiners came into Heritage Credit Union to perform “an exam on everything.”

Schuetz recorded a series of conversations and phone calls between himself and employees at Heritage Credit Union. The U.S. Consumer Coalition posted audio of those recordings.

OMG - FDIC says they screwed up?

Quote:

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has acknowledged its role in Operation Choke Point and is taking dramatic steps to reverse its policies in targeting legal and legitimate industries that are disfavored by the Obama administration.
Quote:
Emails unearthed by investigators showed employees scheming to influence banks’ decisions on who to do business with by labeling certain industries “reputational risks,” ensuring banks “get the message” about the businesses the regulators don’t like, and pressuring banks to cut credit or close those accounts, effectively discouraging entire industries.

FDIC officials were also seen inserting their personal and moral opinions into banking decisions.

“The FDIC has allowed a culture within their agency to blossom that they believe it’s OK to impose their personal opinions and value system in a regulatory way,” says Luetkemeyer. “They are not a regulatory police—their job is to enforce the law.”
Rouge agents just like the first IRS blame game?? LOL

Quote:
Luetkemeyer says the FDIC also intends to work with the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate Operation Choke Point and hold those within the FDIC accountable for any wrongdoings.

Probably a bigger issue with legalized pot,right to die, state by state laws than legalized guns.

Update:

Quote:
The Florida Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate introduced legislation yesterday that would completely defund the Justice Department program while protecting gun sellers and manufacturers from future attempts to eradicate the industry.

Rubio’s legislation, the Firearms Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act of 2015 (S. 477), would prohibit funds to be used by the Justice Department or the FDIC to carry out Operation Choke Point “or any other program designed to discourage the provision or continuation of credit or the processing of payments for dealers and manufactures of firearms and ammunition.”

It is endorsed by two of the nation’s leading gun advocates, the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America, and also has the support of U.S. Consumer Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that has been leading the fight against Operation Choke Point.

There are many, many shady people in show biz. I run into these types all the time. If their businesses are 'targeted' then there is usually a good reason for it.

Conservatives are fond of saying, "If you have done nothing wrong then you have nothing to worry about." So why are Conservatives worried?
Stereotyping conservatives is okay.

If they don't what what they say to be repeated then why do they say it?

And from what I have seen over the last 60 years the IRS and the Feds in general have better thing to do that to make moral decisions.

But if you try to hide your income from them? Then you are stealing from the people of the US. Is that something Conservatives approve of?

Or what of all those in the Obama admin who owe gazillions in back taxes?

Aren't they stealing from the people of the US?

Is this something that liberals approve?

Looks like it since nothing has been done.
