GE Capital: More gun control from the banks
Ticker Forum - FedUp ^ | January 23, 2013 | Bud's Gun Shop

It's official....we received our letter from GE Capital today that our merchant agreement will be terminated effective 2/18/2013. Although they originally told us this would only affect online sales, the letter indicates they are terminating both online and retail merchant business. We still accept credit cards and ACH/Echeck as well as checks by mail....and also offer our 90 day layaway plan....so we do have several other payment options. GE was just our only deferred interest finance option.

ACH/Echeck is the preferred payment option as you can quickly and securely pay online and still receive the lowest advertised cash discount price. Please keep in mind this payment option, like credit cards, is processed by a secure third party and not Budsgunshop.com. We must hold all orders paid via ACH/Echeck for 5 business days before the funding is confirmed and we can release/ship your order. The 5 day hold is really not an issue at this time as we are not shipping most orders within 5 days anyway....more like 2-3 weeks ! We are doing our very best folks....please be patient with us.....this too shall pass. :)

Bank of (Fascist) America was the first to get on board with the Obama administration's plan to conspire to put the squeeze on lawful commerce.

Looks like GE Capital is the next in line.

Sounds like http://www.wgal.com/news/politics/Pa-gun-law-proposal-would-make-federal-gun-control-unenforceable/-/9360314/18254036/-/cnsvk8z/-/index.html is going to get complicated.

The line is not so blurry any more: it is getting more and more well defined.

We must pick a side or one will be picked for us.

Holy crap! If I had Trumps $$$$$, I would open the “Sportsmans Bank of America”. Or the “2nd Amendment Bank of America”. Draw in all the sports related companies and give ‘em good rates. Money maker? Depends on what the clown show in DC attempts to do. But, if I were in their shoes I’d be closing accounts and drawing out $$$$ like no tomorrow.

Molon labe.

Bank of America. Never, for any reason. GE Capital. Never, for any reason.

I just bought my .40 S&W through Bud's.

FUGE-CAP!!!!!!

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Doing business with Bud’s is a risk anyway. Buyer beware, they are not the most reputable business.

It’s been going on for years. The big bank CEO’s are anything but capitalists. My parents, who were small business owner, were very concerned when the smaller banks were being ‘merged’ back in the late 80’s. We’re going to have a ‘global bank’, soon.

The slightly more troublesome solution is to have the merchant calculate exactly what you owe to take your purchase out the door and return with a cashier's check. It's not helpful for people who are running up a credit card bill to make the purchase, but it is a viable alternative.

It’s not a bit surprising that three of the groups that have their knickers in a knot are the banksters, government, finally aided and abetted by the media!

Crony-capitalism has been perfected with the Federal Reserve and the US financial system. Want to REALLY change America and knock the legs out from every Progressive plan for Government? Shut down the Federal Reserve.

I wonder what the link is between GE & GE Capital? Is Jeff Imelt, chairman of Obama’s “jobs council” that never met and outsourced 10s of thousands of jobs to China in charge of GE Capital too?

Imelt ran the company into the ground, destroying a ton of investor value since he took over.

Trump needs to buy the dying New York Times first - or maybe not... I really like the “2nd Amendment Bank of America” - what a great idea rktman.

GE Capital is the financial division of GE. It makes a wide variety of investments/loans with some of GE’s equity and profits (and a lot of money it also borrows from the financial markets) in order to generate additional profit/income for GE. The head of GE Capital reports to Immelt.

NO. GE sold the rights for production of the Mini-gun to Dillon Aero, Inc. (Mike Dillon's company). Dillon now makes the famous Mini-gun, mounts, spare parts, and accessories. The current production model is the M134D that's used on the Navy's Mk 44 Mod 0/1 and USAF’s GAU-17/A. Earlier M134 and GAU-2B/A platforms are being upgraded.

Aren’t Walmart credit cards issued by GE Capital? Would they pull the rug out from under Walmart, too?

The O admin knows that gun control is not going to win legislatively, so, they resort to fascism to try and force the issue.

Apparently there is no longer any tipping point for Americans. We will sit back and watch our freedoms get washed away.
