MSNBC Urges Viewers to Boycott Gun Manufacturers

February 1, 2013 11:13 pm  

(Info Wars) – News network MSNBC – which is effectively owned by arms manufacturer General Electric – put out a tweet yesterday urging its viewers to financially boycott gun manufacturers, in another example of how gun control is being advanced under the radar.

Viewers to Boycott Gun Manufacturers

“Do you know where your $$ is? Maybe it’s invested in the #gun business. Use your wallet to support #gunlimits,” the network tweeted, adding a link to a story about NYC mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio pressuring investment firms to remove funding from gun companies.

The idea of MSNBC telling viewers to boycott investments in gun manufacturers is chillingly ironic given the fact that the network is is part-owned by one of Obama’s biggest campaign contributors, General Electric, which also just happens to be one of the biggest arms manufacturers on the planet.

It’s also a flagrant example of a supposedly neutral media outlet pushing its skewed political agenda.

In response to the tweet, one user responded, “@msnbc reporting news or creating it now.”

As we have previously highlighted, prominent gun control advocates are resorting to economic warfare in a bid to accomplish what they have thus far failed to achieve through the normal legislative path – gun control via mafia-style threats of blackmail.

Last month, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter threatened gun makers and firearms sellers with what amounted to economic sanctions unless they followed draconian new gun control regulations. Nutter warned that the city would take “economic divestment actions” unless gun retailers hosted “semi-annual gun buy-back programs to retire weapons from general public circulation,” amidst a deluge of other mandates.

Nutter’s move is being mirrored by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the man who once called for a ‘no gun buy list’ similar to the no fly list, who announced that he would, “ask all his city’s pension funds to investigate whether they have any holdings in assault weapons makers and sellers, a step toward divesting of those companies.”

Other lawmakers have demanded that gun retailers stop selling semi-automatic assault rifles altogether, an order that stores like Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods have adhered to.

Last month, Bank of American also froze the funds of licensed firearms manufacturer American Spirit Arms, telling owner Joe Sirochman he “should not be selling guns and parts on the internet.”
