The Chicago Way

Rahm tries to get gun company banks to pressure them:

“TD Bank currently aids the gun manufacturing industry through a $60 million revolving line of credit with Smith & Wesson, a gun manufacturer that produces the AR-15 — an assault weapon that was used by James Holmes to kill 12 people and wound 58 in a crowded movie theatre in Aurora,” Emanuel’s missive to TD CEO Bharat Masrani states. “I ask you to use your influence to push this company to find common ground with the vast majority of Americans who support a military weapons and ammunition ban and comprehensive background checks.”

    Markie Marxist sez: “How cool is that!!! My commie compadre, Comrade Mayor Rahm Emanuel, runs up the highest body in the country in his city of Chicago, and then turns around and demands that capitalist banks help shut down capitalist gun makers because of it! Do we commies own America, or what?! Ha! Ha!”

  2. Seerak Says:

    The “TD” stands for “Toronto Dominion”. Perhaps Rahm is counting on an assumed Canadian gun control bias there to pull off a PR coup.

  3. Griff Says:

    What vast majority that support a gun ban?

  4. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    Banks know which side their bread’s buttered on. Vast majority, what a fairy.

    Is that the same Rahm “tiny dancer” Emanuel? Who’s city clocked in with over 500 murders last year. In a state which is losing population by the moving vanload everyday. Yeah, thought so. Once a duckhead always a duckhead.

    Hey Smith & Wesson can pay back what it borrows, can the City of Chicago claim the same?

    Inn-ter-esting. TD Bank mostly has a presence on the Eastern Seaboard, nothing in Ill-annoy. Wonder why he picked them?

    Of course, Banque de America would fall over their feet to comply with this at the slightest urging.

    Well, you can tell Rahmbo never had a Business. Even Bloomberg knows enough to not Piss Off the Banking Industry. You don’t get to be a multi-Billionaire w/o doing Business with the Banks.

    But since Rahmbo has been living off our Tax Dollars for so long, it’s not surprising that he’s as Stupid as Obama and Karl Marx when it comes to Economics.

    The majority of little voices in his head.

  10. Chas Says:

    Boycott Chicago until Rahm gets the murder rate down.

    Remember the good old days when restraint of trade under color of law was a crime?

    Welcome to the new progressive-corporate axis.

    Check out Senator Cruz’s response:

    He tells Rahm to keep his efforts to diminish the Bill of Rights north of the Red River.
