GE Capital stops lending to gun shops....
This was just announced, but the extent of the lending ban - as well as the possible impact - isn't yet clear. There was one talking head on TV stating that the ban applies to shops that ONLY sell guns.
GE Capital Stops Lending to Gun Shops
The interesting twist on this is that GE Capital issues the "Dick's Sporting Goods" branded credit card. Dick's still sells guns, so is GE going to be pulling the cards? Obviously, Dick's sells other sporting goods as well, so perhaps not.

This practice isn't new or unique to GE Capital, B of A started not renewing lines of credit for gun stores at the end of 2012. I know it is only a matter of time before a bunch of posts come up about protesting them etc.
Save it. Banks like B of A are so massive that they really couldn't care less if we pull our accounts etc. That's just a sad dose of reality, like it or not, it is true.

The WSJ stated it is only applicable to stores which are solely gun and ammo stores, and that GE Capital will still lend to Dick's and W*M (e.g. broad-line retailers)

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

A company that makes and sells whole array of weapons and weapons system to the military is not going to finance a tool that is used by regular person to stop an intruder because they might offend some people from sandy hook.

I have to (respectfully, of course) semi-disagree with your statements above. But it's a matter of resolution...I personally refrain from doing business with businesses that I disagree with. Not that I'm trying to put them out of business, just that I have choices and I exercise those choices. Because of this, I've had to change products, my favorite cologne for one thing (away from Kenneth Cole's Black), and I refuse to watch certain TV shows and movies because I don't want to support the actors or Networks. I will never buy another Springsteen CD now either.

Gee whiz... so some shops will have to get financing or credit card coverage (for transactions) from someone other than usurious GE Capital. It's not like they're the only game in town. I say good riddance.

Most if not all banks and credit card processors are controlled by liberals that go out of their way not to have anything to do with guns. they control the money and that is how they will control us

Adam Lanza's father is an exec at GE Capital. Maybe a case of the guilts? Maybe if he spent more time with his kid we would not be talking about this.

There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

I also boycott any company that I find has an agenda that I disagree with. I know it probably makes no difference but it makes me feel like I'm doing something. Voting doesn't seem to work any more.

How do you boycott a company the size of GE?

Which suggests this might be an economic decision by GE Cap. rather than an anti-gun issue. It sounds like they

Nice try, but I really doubt it...

There are upwards of 90 million gun owners in this country. But guns are not their only purchase. They buy appliances, cars, light bulbs, lighting fixtures, etc. I, for example, don't buy GM products because they shafted their bond holders to become a nationalized company. And I don't buy GE products because they have a history of extreme statism. In fact their CEO is so close to Barry that if one ever stopped short you'd need a winch to separate them.
