Major red flags surround Citi Group’s egregious gun control move

Citi Group just positioned itself for major backlash as it is the latest in the growing list of companies caving in to demands by anti-Second Amendment advocates.

In a statement condemning gun violence and the lack of gun control policies, the bank announced Thursday that it would start requiring clients to place some restrictions on gun sales. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson noted the alarming new trend as the “left is now colluding with large companies to roll back your rights to bear arms without any legislation at all.”

Although the company stated that the new policy is “not centered on an ideological mission to rid the world of firearms,” the announcement concluded with Citi showing non-conformers the door.

“We know our clients also care about these issues and we have begun to engage with them in the hope that they will adopt these best practices over the coming months,” the statement read.  “If they opt not to, we will respect their decision and work with them to transition their business away from Citi.”

Free Beacon writer Stephen Gutowski summed up the bank’s decision.

Perhaps, Gutowski’s most disturbing observation comes for a passage that insinuates Citi Bank might be trying to put pressure on other financial institutions to do the same.

“You may remember Citi group because about 10 years ago they got 45 billion of your taxpayer dollars to get bailed out. That’s why they still exist,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday. “Now they turn around and work to undermine the constitutional rights of the taxpayers who bailed them out.”

The Fox News host said a call to the company was made in the hopes of getting a representative to “explain how this works” on the air but Citi refused “because they are cowards.”

“This is happening over and over. More companies are participating and they’re taking action on more issues,” Carlson warned. “The fear the government might remove your rights is becoming quaint. Big tech and finance are doing it for them already. With no public debate they just do it and tough luck if you don’t like it.”

Citi Group is joining the likes of Dick’s Sporting Goods and even Walmart in caving in to demands by the left. But they may find that their grandstanding on political issues is not ultimately good for business.
