Americans bailed out Bank of America and Citigroup.
Citibank announced Thursday that it will start requiring clients to place some restrictions on gun sales, including banning the sale of firearms to anyone under the age of 21.

“It’s our intention not to finance these military-style firearms for civilian use,” Anne Finucane, a vice chairman at Bank of America, said Tuesday in a Bloomberg Television interview. The firm has had “intense conversations over the last few months” with those kinds of gun manufacturers to tell them it won’t finance their operations in the future, she said.
Firearms manufacturers were already facing financial problems. This is a calculated strategy to enact gun control through the financial sector.
Citigroup and Bank of America were happy enough to take the money of gun owners. Now they want to go to war against the 2nd Amendment. But there's plenty of unfinished business from the financial crisis.
