National Rifle Association President James W. Porter II wrote a great column that outlines the DOJ’s “Operation Choke Point” program. He includes some samples of letters banks have sent to some retailers who are targets of this program. This is a must read for anyone in our industry.
Porter calls for action as well. He states that we can stop programs like this on November 4th with our votes. But more importantly, he calls for us to educate and inform the general public about this government overreaching. With a traditionally low turnout at mid-term elections, Porter believes we can make a difference and help put an end to the choking.
