Louisiana AG Blocks Banks From Closing $600 Million Deal Due To Their Gun Control Views

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has taken steps to block Bank of America and Citibank from underwriting a $600 million state deal, because of their public views on the Second Amendment.

Bank of America has pledged to end loans to gun manufacturers, who produce military style firearms for civilian use and Citi put restrictions on the sale of firearms by its business customers, according to The New York Times.

“We don’t want them to represent the state of Louisiana when they’re gonna decide to become the social police and infect Louisiana with these types of policies, under which they’re gonna restrict our citizens’ ability to legally purchase firearms,” Landry, a Republican, said on “Fox & Friends” Sunday. “And so it was a great day in Louisiana this week, our state treasurer, John Schroeder and many conservatives stood up and said, ‘No. We don’t want these types of corporations representing the state of Louisiana.’”
