NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Some 33 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have written the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and that department’s office of professional responsibility asking for an immediate investigation into the program dubbed “Operation Choke Point.”

The DOJ initiated program was launched to cut off access to financial services to specific businesses, starting with non-depository lenders but quickly adding other industries including firearms and ammunition manufacturers and retailers. [and any DOJ decided were “icky” (sic)]

In the letter, the members cited the May House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report documenting “egregious abuse of power that we believe merits your full attention and a formal investigation.”

NSSF has been assisting the committee and members with unraveling the details of how Operation Choke Point has affected the industry.

Read the letter.

Time to demand more than an investigation. Demand charges be brought and resignations.

Arrest the Traitors and hang them all.


They’re asking THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE to investigate? Beyond belief! Let’s all hold our breath.


Obama adminstrators finally going to be held accountable for abuse of power? Better be november is coming. Anymore lost hard drives and using texting to avoid required record retention. Time for some to go to jail.
Speaking of jail how about all those Californian dui senators and the gun runner. Talk about some criminals.
