" The state’s bond commission voted 7 to 6 Thursday to ban Bank of America Corp. andCitigroup Inc. from working on its upcoming debt sale because of the banks’ "restrictive gun policies," the state treasury said in a statement . Bank of America and Citigroup are the two top-ranked underwriters of long-term municipal debt, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. "

From the article:  "Citi adopted this policy because we believe it is a positive and balanced step to promote gun safety without undermining free markets or Second Amendment rights," spokesman Scott Helfman said in an emailed statement. "It is disappointing that the taxpayers of Louisiana will be deprived from competitive bidding for necessary public works because the process has been politicized."

Says the spokesman from the bank that politicized things in the first place. :shakehead:  It's ok when THEY politicize things, but wrong when it's done back to them.  Color me surprised.

And bravo, Louisiana!!  Well played!
