Texas Senator Tells Chicago Mayor To Back-Off Gun Manufacturers

Texas Senator Ted Cruz wants Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to back of gun manufacturers. The Republican senator issued a response to Emanuel’s letter to banks which do business with gun makers.

The Lone Star politician considers the former Obama administration official a bully. Cruz told gun companies that Texas banks would welcome their business and offered to personally introduce them to leading lenders.

Senator Cruz’s response to Rahm Emanuel stated:

“Your city’s longstanding policies stripping citizens of their Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms have, in turn, produced some of the very highest murder rates in the nation. Regardless, directing your attack at legitimate firearms manufacturers undermines the Second Amendment rights of Texans. In the future, I would ask that you keep your efforts to diminish the Bill of Rights north of the Red River.”

The Texas Senator’s Rahm Emanuel response also maintained the Chicago mayor was trying to deprive law-abiding citizens of the right to bear arms, the Washington Examiner notes. Mayor Emanuel’s letter was sent to both the Bank of America and TD Bank. Both banks extend a massive line of credit to two major American gun manufacturers.


Ted Cruz also told the two gun manufacturers targeted in the Chicago mayor’s letter not to hesitate to call him for assistance in relocating their funds. The Texas elected officials made note of Rahm Emanuel’s alleged nickname, “The Godfather” in his letter to the banks.

Cruz, a new senator, has garnered a plethora of positive response to his Rahm Emanuel letter on his Facebook page. Constituents are referring to the Texas Republican as a patriot and applauding his courage to speak out in support of the Second Amendment. The entire Ted Cruz letter can be read by clicking here.
