Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- Pat yourselves on the back!

As you will recall, Gun Owners of America rallied gun owners several times over the past couple of months in opposition to Operation Choke Point.

Well, faced with a devastating barrage from the Second Amendment community, the Obama administration has staged a hasty retreat on its plan to shut off credit for gun stores through “Operation Choke Point.”

According to an article in The Washington Times, “[g]un retailers are no longer on a hit list deemed ‘high risk’ by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. after the banking regulator formally withdrew [this list]” last week.

The FDIC said its efforts to destroy the gun industry “led to misunderstandings.”

But frankly, the only “misunderstanding” in the actions by the FDIC and Eric Holder’s “Operation Choke Point” involved Obama’s misunderstanding of the withering response to his slimy efforts to destroy the Second amendment “by the back door.”

With the support of GOA, appropriations legislation in the House had language which would have eliminated Operation Choke Point entirely. And Harry Reid was forced to pull the bill and derail the appropriations process after Senator Rand Paul, with our urging, threatened to force endangered Democrats to vote on the issue in that chamber.

As is always the case with Barack Obama, one can never assume that he has backed away from his efforts to destroy the Second Amendment.

But last week’s actions are pretty good news for the gun community. So thanks again for all your hard work!

    1. Still we gun owners must keep the pressure on. Obama is looking for other ways to destroy our god given rights that is affirmed by the US Constitution.
