House bill against Operation Choke Point complicates Obama’s war on Second Amendment
(Morrow County Sentinel, 2/10)

“As it will soon be known, in the bad old days of President Obama’s second term, he used the Department of Justice (DOJ) to attack his most hated of political enemies: gun dealers. In Operation Choke Point, a gun dealer could wake up one morning and find that his or her bank has terminated their relationship; their payment processor would refuse to continue handling credit card payments and suddenly the things a legitimate business relied upon were inaccessible […] U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R- Ariz.) advanced an amendment to H.R. 766 which requires financial institutions to give notice before terminating accounts at the behest of the federal government. This requirement, along with H.R. 766 itself, shows tremendous promise in stopping this process of destroying financial relationships based on “reputational risk”, as DOJ designated the Obama administration’s enemies.”
