This may explain why he's lecturing the rest of us on the best way to prevent gun violence -- after all, his plans have worked so well in Chicago -- and lobbying to erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights.
Now, the Master of the Chicago Way is at it again, this time attacking legal and law abiding gun makers. He has requested that several large banking institutions no longer offer lines of credit to manufacturers such as Smith & Wesson until they agree to his proposals on gun control.
...If corporations and financial institutions continue to be intimidated by the Chicago style threats and bullying we have come to expect from Emanuel and this administration in general, we are in serious trouble. There is no longer any need for them to legislate anything when they are able to use propaganda and manipulation to shut down anything they do not agree with, legal or not. This is starting to set an incredibly dangerous precedent for the future of this country.
There are, of course, things we can still do.
The way I read this story, Emanuel is calling for a national boycott of Chicago.
Consider: there are only about 80 million gun owners in the United States. By slamming all of those law-abiding gun owners, Emanuel has very effectively called for a nationwide boycott of his own city. And I, for one, am more than happy to oblige.
