Beto takes new ‘Dark Knight’ schtick to the extreme with fight against guns, credit cards

Unfortunately, some financial institutions are falling for the ruse.

Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 presidential campaign can be described in three words:  Spray and pray.

The Texan has been trying just about anything to get his ill-conceived campaign out of the single digits, including a series of reboots not unlike those of a popular superhero movie franchise.

For the uninitiated, we are currently in his The Dark Knight phase, wherein the El Paso native has turned dark, gritty, profane, and angry.  He’s even selling t-shirts with the F-word emblazoned on them in a bid for millennial “cool points”.

Beto’s latest arch-villain is the right to bear arms, and their alleged henchmen:  Credit cards.

Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is suggesting credit cards are an enabling factor in mass shootings.

O’Rourke conflated the two via Twitter and followed it by pushing financial institutions to take action.

He wrote, “Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”

But, much like Batman’s nemesis, The Joker, money is no issue.  It’s mental health that is the true culprit.  Mass shooters just want to watch the world burn.

Unfortunately, some financial institutions are falling for the ruse.

CitiBank adopted gun control requirements for customers in March 2018.

Breitbart News reported CitiBank’s gun control policy set forth three requirements for “new retail sector clients or partners.” Those requirements: (1) they don’t sell firearms to someone who hasn’t passed a background check, (2) they restrict the sale of firearms for individuals under 21 years of age, and (3) they don’t sell bump stocks or high-capacity magazines.

Earlier today, over 140 CEO’s from major corporations around the country signed a letter urging Congress to act against the Second Amendment, a move that belies the left’s indifference to the injection of money into our political process.
