As I have posted before, this is WRONG -- an abuse of the legislative process -- but it is what left-leaning political leadership will resort to give the control that the NRA has exerted over gun legilslation. I previously mentione dthings like taxes on bullets or onerous insurance requirements that made it difficult to ow a gun, this is similar, the Executive Branch bypassing Congress and using (pressuring) the FDIC:

‘High risk’ label from feds puts gun sellers in banks’ crosshairs, hurts business
Obama plan pressures financial institutions

Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales

Note the focus on ONLINE SALES

Again, I think this is WRONG and having limited government functioning properly is more important in the long-run than guns . . . . . but as wrong as this is its hardly unexpected. IT is relfection of the government OVERREACTING to the over-reaching of the NRA

Good of you to let them off the hook like that. They shouldn't be held responsible for their wrong actions.

it is NOT very difficult to limit access to guns
it is almost impossible to prevent someone with a mental illness from getting a gun.

I am not letting them off the hook. I said I disagree and its wrong and that their wrang action is a bigger issue than guns
