Sen. Cruz encourages gun manufacturers and Chicago banks to consider moving to Texas

Fox News:
Feeling bullied by Rahm Emanuel? Bring your business down to Texas.

That's the message Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is sending big banks and firearms companies, after the Chicago mayor urged those banks to stop lending to the gun manufacturers.

The freshman senator sent a letter Tuesday to the CEOs of Bank of America and TD Bank Group offering up the Lone Star State as a place where they could do business without hassle from the government. He said he understands that, since they do "considerable business" with Chicago, they might be worried about the "risks" of not complying with Emanuel's request.

"In light of the reception you have received in the Windy City, please know that Texas would certainly welcome more of your business and the jobs you create," Cruz wrote in his Jan. 29 letter. "Texans value jobs and value freedom, and over 1,000 people a day are moving to Texas (often from cities like Chicago), because Texas is where the jobs are."

He also sent letters to the CEO of Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. -- writing that "should Emanuel's bullying campaign prove successful, I am confident that there are numerous financial institutions in Texas that would be eager to earn your business."

We have better weather too.

Texas politicians have not bee shy about encouraging our friends from up north to flee the hostile environment and come to a place that is welcoming.   When one of these companies does come the news will be even bigger.

One other problem with Emanuel's pitch is that the gun manufacturers are very profitable at this point so it would be a mistake to turn down their business.
