With a growing problem related to gang (and gun) violence, and an apparently ineffective police force, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has decided to target law-abiding banks and law-abiding gun makers who don't agree with his (and, by extension, Obamas) gun-ban. He did this by sending out two letters, one to BoA (Bank of America) and one to TD Bank, telling them to "use your influence to push" the gun companies "to find common ground."
I'm not even sure this is legal. And even if it is illegal it can't be morally acceptable for someone to abuse their office to attack legal, law-abiding, companies because they don't share the same political view-point.
Perhaps Rahm should target the gangs, the gun-runners, and the people actually breaking the law and spend less time going after people and companies obeying the law?
