Operation Choke Point Docs Show Blatant Bias

Documents in the Advance America et al. v. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. lawsuit show the Obama administration “tried to ruin a legal industry by cutting it off from the banking system,” according to an article in The Wall Street Journal. The documents also show that the administration listed firearms and ammunition sales in the same categories as Ponzi schemes. NSSF worked with Congress to end Operation Choke Point and is continuing to battle this kind of discrimination. Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID), Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, along with fellow committee Republicans, sent a letter to FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams requesting that the “FDIC review all options available to ensure lawful businesses are able to continue to operate without fear of significant financial consequences.”
