Kansas Fights Back Against Operation Choke Point

posted on January 26, 2016

The Wichita Eagle reported Monday that Republican State Sen. Jacob Turner has introduced a bill to prevent discrimination against gun dealers who have been targeted by Operation Choke Point, an initiative started in 2013 by the Department of Justice under former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and implemented by the FDIC. 

The Kansas Firearms Industry Nondiscrimination Act would make it illegal to discriminate against those engaged in the lawful commerce in firearms. Operation Choke Point effectively strong-armed banks into severing relationships with legal firearm businesses by reclassifying them as a “reputational risk,” implying they have the same bad public image as porn shops, Ponzi schemes and online gambling. 

Numerous firearms businesses with stellar credit histories and no legal entanglements have been dropped by their banks under Operation Choke Point merely “because you sell guns.” Read Dave Kopel’s excellent 2015 feature in America’s 1st Freedom here.
