    Only link I could find is in the WSJ - and is behind their pay-wall.

    GE Capital Cuts Lending to Gun Shops
    GE Capital is quietly cutting off lending to gun shops, as the company rethinks its relationship to firearms amid the fallout from the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.



    Heads up if you have credit cards / lines of credit from that company.

    So how do they justify this when they were the manufacturer of the GE M134A mini gun. I believe the current contract is with Dillon but still - using unfair lending practices toward others for doing the same they have done in the past...

    Uh, don't they make jet engines for aircraft, military aircraft? Oh, those weapons of war are ok. That gets them their special tax breaks and bailouts.
