Dear Colleagues:
Please join me in protecting our Second Amendment right by prohibiting President Obama from using Operation Choke Point or similar program to target the firearm industry.
Under Operation Choke Point the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and Department of Justice permitted Attorney General Eric Holder the means to cripple firearms and ammunition manufacturers by placing immense regulatory pressure on the financial institutions they do business with.
While the FDIC has claimed that it has ceased its targeting of firearms manufacturers under Operation Choke Point, more must be done to ensure that the Second Amendment isn’t threatened. We must cement into law a prohibition from regulators using Operation Choke Point, or any future similar program from going after a lawful industry.
The Firearm Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act would entirely defund any activities associated with Operation Choke Point and forbid the U.S. Attorney General from restarting a similar program. If you have any questions or wish to cosponsor, please contact Ryan White at or at 5-2190
