Odd, the left screeches about human rights constantly, yet, they actively campaign against the most essential human right, that of self-defense
The San Francisco-based bank last week issued a $40 million line of credit to gun manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co., according to financial filings. That’s on top of the $431 million in debt that Wells Fargo has arranged for gunmakers since December 2012, when the Sandy Hook school shooting escalated the gun control debate. No other bank lent more to the industry over that time, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
The new debt, issued to one of the world’s largest publicly traded gunmakers, came as a big surprise to at least one group: nuns who had been talking to Wells Fargo about corporate-responsibility issues. On Sept. 26, the day before the debt agreement was issued, they had met with the bank’s business-standards employees in New York.
“This is shocking news because we are in sustained dialogue with Wells Fargo,” said Nora Nash, a sister at St. Francis of Philadelphia who was at the meeting as a member of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. “This new business relationship with Sturm Ruger is in direct conflict with ethics, culture and respect for human rights throughout the company.
So, owning a firearm is not a human right? Of course it is. Self-preservation, and defending your loved ones is the most basic human right. And just what is unethical about a bank doing business with a legitimate business exactly? To me, unethical would be demonizing the tens of millions of gun owners. Sounds as if moral clarity has escaped Nora Nash. Disarming the good only helps evil people, that is a basic truth.
