Banks Trying to Stop the Gun Business

5/25/18 New York Times has a remarkably fair account of how the big banks are trying to shut down the gun industry:
Major banks have taken a series of steps this year to prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands. They are restricting their credit card and banking services to gun retailers and halting lending to gun makers that do not comply with age limits and background check rules determined by the banks. 
"Background check rules"?   Any retailer not doing background checks has bigger problems than financing.  Imagine if banks stopped accepting credit card charges from Planned Parenthood.
