Doing business with gun manufacturers might benefit the banks’ bottom line, but they put our police officers, our children, and our communities at risk ...

I think banks should stop doing business with Chicago.

Banks cannot afford to let businesses know that banks aren’t needed.

Pure fascism bordering on extortion, take your pick. Think and do like we tell you to, or there’s gonna be trouble.

This goes back to the bailouts. Now the fascists in power are looking for their pound of flesh.

It’s amazing how liberals are suddenly for private enterprise when they can manipulate it to serve their own agenda.

Gun manufacturers and ammunition manufacturers should stop selling their products to gun banning cities like Chitcago.

Support your local credit unions. The largest banks all seem to have gotten disgusting diseases from being in bed with government.

I already boycott B of A.IF TD gives in to the thugs in Chicago, I will close my accounts with them and boycott them forever. I just sent an email to that effect to my account manager at TD, and I will follow through with a phone call later today and then by closing my account if TD acts irresponsibly. I hope everyone on FR and other patriotic Americans will stand up for freedom and help TD and other banks to do the right thing.

Gee that’s tough, let’s see....
Stop doing business with a good customer,
or stop doing business with someone who
thinks they can lean on you to make you
tow their political line.

Tough choice eh.

Firearms manufacturers should boycott Chicago PD.

I’m already pulling my business acct out of BofA. It’s kinda sad because the folks that run my branch are very friendly to me and have bent over backward to give me great service. Too bad they work for a bank that has a leftist political agenda.

A bit stupid to stop doing business with one segment of our economy that is doing better than ever.

Is it legal for a publically owned institution to discriminate against a legal, legitimitate, financially sound business interest??

Does Rahm really want to push the financials of the firearms industry underground?

What was the definition of Fascism again?

Definition of FASCISM
1 often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2 : a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control (early instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge)

Yeah... That's what I thought.

USAA would be wise to pick up the slack.

Since both the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois are running continuing deficits, which banks are handling their bonds? Are any banks loaning them money directly?

This begins to impinge upon national security. Dry up the operating funds for the arms industry and you dry up the R&D and production of the equipment required to secure our country.

Scratch a Chicago mayor on the surface, reveal a marxist underneath.

TD Bank currently aids the gun manufacturing industry through a $60 million revolving line of credit with Smith & Wesson

Perhaps we should institute a REVERSE BOYCOTT and "donate" to Smith & Wesson so that they no longer NEED TD Bank!!
