Gun Seller Dropped By Bank Rejects
Their Attempt ‘To Kiss And Make Up’

Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 6/1/2014 2:01:02 PM

A Massachusetts gun store owner says it’s “too late” for a bank to mend a relationship that it broke. Mark Cohen, who owns Powderhorn Outfitters, a Hyannis, Mass. gun retailer, said that his longtime bank, TD Bank, refused to extend a line of credit because of the business he is in. (Snip) Cohen believes that TD Bank didn’t want to do business with his gun store because of a government initiative called Operation Choke Point. Operated under a cloud of secrecy by the Department of Justice and in coordination with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Operation Choke Point forces banks

Comments:
The list of companies I no longer do business with has grown again. GEICO went away earlier this year after its "Tea Party" ad, and now TD Bank when my checks run out. Until then I will keep the minimum balance and transfer all my auto pays to my credit union.

A comment at the story raised an interesting point. The government can force bakeries and photographers to bake cakes and take pictures for homosexual weddings against the owners religious beliefs, so how can banks refuse to do business with a company that legally sells guns or ammo?

This sounds like a good market that an astute financial organization could exploit.

Good for the firm to tell the bank where to go and how to get there. Perhaps the bank will now fight the government

Big government liberals are engaged in a war on the majority of American institutions and industries. As cited by poster 1, even photographers and bakers are in the crosshairs of the collectivists. Exceptions are made, of course, for industries dominated by libs such as green energy and for outfits owned by democrat cronies. The outlook is discouraging because leftist have momentum fueled by an electorate dumbed down by the invasion of illegals, and by millions of formerly self-sufficient people who recently submitted to big government dependency.

On the other hand, if you only do a cash business, and are never involved with financial institutions, then you don´t have to be concerned with paying income tax.

Three things a person or business or the govt should not mess with: a man´s wife, his children and the way he legitimately earns a living. Do any of these and it could lead to an unfortunate event.

I´d like to think other Gun Companies would do the same but since this is a Government mandated directive on banks there may not be many places they can go.

Weare police officers to wear
body cameras on patrol

As a result of recent lawsuits against the town, police officers will soon be wearing body cameras while out on patrol. “Yes, of course it’s because of recent lawsuits settled,” Weare Police Chief John D. Velleca said Thursday. (Snip) Two cases settled this month include a $57,500 lawsuit brought by Carla Gericke, president of the Free State Project, who was arrested in March 2010 for videotaping officers during a traffic stop, and a $300,000 settlement for the August 2013 killing of Alex Cora deJesus of Manchester during an undercover drug deal gone bad.

Granite Staters are repeatedly told — by Democratic politicians and the activist left — that voter fraud is a “myth” and that the only effect of voter ID laws is to “suppress” the vote. They repeat that spin even as instances of actual fraud pile up. (Snip) He was everything the Republicans had warned about: a Massachusetts voter traveling to New Hampshire to vote illegally in the hope of changing the outcome of our elections. Schneider said he voted here because he figured his vote would count here, but would not count back home in Massachusetts.

Suppose that an authoritarian government decides to embark on a program of curricular reform, with the explicit goal of indoctrinating the nation’s high school students. Suppose that it wants to change the curriculum to teach students that their government is good and trustworthy, that their system is democratic and committed to the rule of law, and that free markets are a big problem.

Engine maker Pratt & Whitney is leaving Southern California, which will eliminate 530 jobs as defense spending contracts and the company consolidates its operations. The defense contractor announced Thursday that it plans to close its AeroPower facility in San Diego over the next two years (snip) AeroPower´s military business will move to Pratt & Whitney´s Military Engines organization. The company is considering relocating operations to existing facilities in Florida, Georgia and Texas.

   

 

  


 
America´s Oldest Gun Maker Thumbs
Its Nose At A Two-Faced Senator
Forbes, by Frank Miniter    Original Article
Posted By: nhchemist- 5/16/2014 3:37:56 PM     Post Reply
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) lost his “assault weapons” jobs. Remington Outdoor Company (ROC) announced it’s moving its Bushmaster rifle and Remington Model 1911 pistol production lines from its nearly 200-year-old plant in Ilion, New York, to its new facility in much more gun-rights-friendly Huntsville, Alabama. (Snip) Remington’s plant in New York State has been on shaky ground ever since the state passed the SAFE Act, a massive gun-control bill that bans the sale of an expansive list of what it deems “assault weapons,” including the AR-15s made by ROC in Ilion.

Gun used by suspected Boston
Marathon bomber traced to Maine gang
Los Angeles Times, by Richard A. Serrano    Original Article
Posted By: nhchemist- 5/13/2014 4:17:39 PM     Post Reply
When police confronted Tamerlan Tsarnaev four nights after the Boston Marathon bombing last year, he leaped from his car with a 9-millimeter semiautomatic pistol and opened fire. He critically wounded one officer and, despite being shot himself, kept firing until the gun emptied or jammed. (Snip) Its journey from a street gang that peddled crack cocaine in Portland, Maine, to the grisly shootout in a Boston suburb tells much about illicit drug and gun trafficking in New England, and perhaps more about Tsarnaev. Authorities believe Tsarnaev's ties to the illicit drug trade in Maine helped finance his six-month trip to the southern Russian

Downhill: Obamacare vs. ski areas

Among Obamacare´s myriad negative effects on small businesses could be this: shorter ski seasons in New Hampshire. At a forum on the Affordable Care Act held last week, Greg Goddard, general manager of Gunstock Ski Resort, said the resort might shorten its season because it cannot afford to offer health insurance to its full-time seasonal employees who work for more than 120 consecutive days, as the law requires. "We may not be able to open beyond 120 days; it may be Christmas to the middle of March ... the summer season may be the fourth of July until Labor Day,"

How NH Dems made Havenstein
eligible for governor
Union Leader [Manchester, NH], by Drew Cline    Original Article
Posted By: nhchemist- 4/10/2014 10:25:30 PM     Post Reply
Walter Havenstein of Alton is running for the Republican nomination for governor. Democrats claim he is ineligible because although he has lived in New Hampshire since 1999 and maintained his legal domicile here all that time, he also was a legal resident of Maryland from 2008-2011. The New Hampshire Constitution states that the governor “shall have been an inhabitant of this state for 7 years next preceding.” (Snip) Because of the Democrats’ insistence that “domicile” be kept strictly separate from “residency,” Havenstein has been a legally domiciled inhabitant of New Hampshire since 1999.

An answer to the perennial question:
Is it safe to pee in the pool?

Sanitary-minded pool-goers who preach "no peeing in the pool," despite ordinary and Olympic swimmers admitting to the practice, now have scientific evidence to back up their concern. Researchers are reporting that when mixed, urine and chlorine can form substances that can cause potential health problems. Their study appears in ACS´ journal Environmental Science & Technology. (Snip) They conclude that swimmers can improve pool conditions by simply urinating where they´re supposed to -- in the bathrooms.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana recently told a Nashua, N.H., audience about his experience with a school bully. Bullying is a nationwide problem, but the bully Jindal was describing was U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently tried to crush school choice in Louisiana. Last Monday, March 17, parents in New York City who send their children to Success Academy, a Harlem charter school, filed suit in federal court to stop another school bully, Mayor Bill de Blasio, from denying them previously arranged space in a public school building.

LAST YEAR, somewhere deep in the bowels of Fiat´s Ufficio Stampa in Turin, Italy, an employee had a problem. On the screen was a news release about the first load of Serbia-built Fiat 500Ls arriving from Montenegro to the Port of Baltimore. He or she was obliged to write something pleasant about the car´s driving. The "North American Fiat 500L delivers excellent performance and great driving pleasure," this person perjured blandly. "These enviable characteristics are made even more interesting by typical European handling and precise, responsive steering."

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide
