It seems General Electric - or rather its capital and banking arm - has decided that guns are icky, nasty things, and wants nothing more to do with them. MarketWatch reports:
General Electric Co. is quietly cutting off lending to gun shops, as the company rethinks its relationship to firearms amid the fallout from the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
This month, Glenn Duncan, owner of Duncan’s Outdoor Store in Bay City, Mich., said he received a letter from GE Capital Retail Bank in which the lender said it had made “the difficult decision” to stop providing financing services to his store. Other gun dealers have received similar notices.

GE is, of course, free to do business with whomever it chooses. So am I. However, if GE is going to disassociate itself from firearms-related businesses - businesses with whom it had been happy to associate in the past - I take that as evidence of the company's indirect opposition to the Second Amendment. I further note that GE's Chairman of the Board and CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, is closely aligned with the Obama administration. I presume he's fully in step with the latter's anti-firearm and anti-Second-Amendment agenda.
I'll therefore be disassociating myself from GE products and services. I invite my readers to consider doing likewise.
