2.25.16: Operation Choke Points Stranglehold - This Week on GUNTALK Radio
Mandeville, LA - It's a Congressman still fighting Operation Choke Point years later, a veteran-owned ammunition company, a chance to be a guest on GUNTALK Radio at the NRA Show, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (3rd District of Missouri), was able to celebrate earlier this month after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 766, the Financial Institution Customer Protection Act, in response to Operation Choke Point, (the FDIC and DOJ strong arm financial institutions to cancel accounts and funding for businesses they don't like, including businesses that deal with firearms and ammunition), after it was discovered more than two years ago. However, Rep. Luetkemeyer knows while a battle has been one, the war is far from over, and continues to hear stories from business owners across the U.S. about banks cancelling their accounts. He visits on Sunday to discuss the victory, and what you can do. The email address set up back in 2014 continues to accept these stories at email@example.com today. Read more about the passage of H.R. 766 here: http://luetkemeyer.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=398684.
Also on this Sunday, Boyd Metz, of HS Munitions, Inc., or HSM, an ammunition manufacturer located in Stevensville, MT, offering more than 700 products in 125 calibers. HSM, founded in 1968, is veteran-owned, and has grown over the last four decades to become one of the leading manufacturers of specialized ammo.
