    :huh: just heard on lars larson show that citibank will not finance anyone who has ANYTHING to do with firearms.scope mount manufacturer coudlnt get a loan after he was first accepted for the business loan.anyone who cares about our gun community might want to rethink any business with citibank.i havnt researched this myself,just repeating what was on the radio.

    News flash - this article was written twelve years ago! In other breaking news, George W Bush to run for President and the US economy is in the dumps. Well, some things never change.

    Anyone boycotting Amazon, Google, eBay and Paypal? None of those companies will facilitate the advertising or sale of guns or ammo either.

    I know for a fact amazon has all kinds of scopes and firearms accessories. They don't sell guns or ammo but they do sell everything else

    I don't care when it was written myself. All that means is that I would have got rid of my citibank card before now if I would have known about it previously.

    Not allowing guns to be sold on a site, especially one governed by the laws of California is different than denying financing for a business simply because it is gun related in my book. Craigslist doesn't allow firearms sales either. They are fearful that they could be liable for god knows what. These days who knows, especially in Cali.

    I won't be using citibank anymore. It's not like that is going to shut their doors, but if enough gun owners do it they will feel it.

    Considering there are over 250 million firearms in the USA, If every firearms owner refused to use them it would cause a serious financial impact and maybe force them to rethink there completely ridiculous policy.

    Supposedly, this was rescinded not to long after: Citibank kills firearms policy but Google does show a couple of references to similar actions earlier this year. But those could just be a case of thread-necro...

    This came up on the show today because the latest slimy act by sh errrrrr citibank was very recent, like within the last few days. I find it interesting that Citi was a recipient of TARP money, and have government influence, and now en masse deny loans to people that do business with people that promote 2nd amendment rights.



    Im sure theres no connection.



    I really cannot wait for civil war to break out.

    It would be interesting to know which agency provides security for their top executives - bet that agency has "connections" to the firearms industry.

    Ugh, dump your Federally chartered banks and go to a state chartered bank with open disclosure of their investment portfolio. I love my bank in Montana: financially conservative, they know me by name despite living in WA, I've met the owner, went to school with his daughter and aren't secretive. With the Internet, automatic billing and deposits there is no reason I need a massive bank.

    Silencer Talk pulled their firearms classified section in order to be able to use Google ads on the site. Under Google's terms, you cannot advertise firearms on the site and use Google ads. This per Robert who owns the site.

    Hmmmm...maybe it's time to turn to a life of crime, after all Citibank must have unarmed guards and transport drivers!

    "Considering there are over 250 million firearms in the USA, If every firearms owner refused to use them it would cause a serious financial impact and maybe force them to rethink there completely ridiculous policy."

    Right idea, but maybe easier to hurt them... If every firearms owner contacted Home Depot and refused to do business with them because of their finance companies BS policies.. Then Home Depot would have to make a choice to either sell their credit business to someone else or continue to loose in store business.. .Lowe's makes sure that their finance company does not discriminate like this, so we all have a choice... Just a thought....
