Emulating New York and California, two deep-blue states with mammoth unfunded pension liabilities, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) has hectored a $5 billion pension fund into divesting its holdings in companies that manufacture firearms. Now he is urging two large banks to deny financing to such companies “that profit from gun violence.” TD Bank provides a $60 million credit line to Smith & Wesson, and Bank of America provides a $25 million line to Sturm, Ruger & Co.
Why? Why are liberals so stupid that they vote against their own economic interests? Somebody should investigate this strange phenomenon. I know, maybe we can get historian Thomas "What's the Matter with Kansas" Frank to look into this strange behavior on the part of liberal Chicago.
Dr. Frank? Are you out there, Dr. Frank? Hello? Hello?
