The party of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders turns to the Big Banks to do their legislative lifting:
Citigroup Sets Restrictions on Gun Sales by Business Partners
Citigroup is setting restrictions on the sale of firearms by its business customers, making it the first Wall Street bank to take a stance in the divisive nationwide gun control debate.
The new policy, announced Thursday, prohibits the sale of firearms to customers who have not passed a background check or who are younger than 21. It also bars the sale of bump stocks and high-capacity magazines. It would apply to clients who offer credit cards backed by Citigroup or borrow money, use banking services or raise capital through the company.
The rules, which the company described as “common-sense measures,” echo similar restrictions established by some major retailers, like Walmart. But they also represent the boldest such move to emerge from the banking sector.
"Common sense". My common sense (not to mention the NY Times its bad self) tells me that age discrimination is illegal in New York and many other states. Is Citicorp dropping any clients who won't ignore the law, does their corporate policy apply in states where allowed but not New York, or is this a bit of a PR stunt abetted by agenda-driven cheerleading, aka "reporting"?
