Webinar: Navigating 'Operation Choke Point' — April 29
Williams Mullen
"Operation Choke Point" began as a coordinated Federal multi-agency effort to regulate the banking industry based upon "reputational risk," which is the purported risk a bank faces when dealing with certain types of customers. The program evolved into a means by which regulators restricted banks' dealings with targeted industries. Williams Mullen attorneys Camden R. Webb, Wayne "Whit" A. Whitham Jr., and Charles "Chuck" E. James Jr. will highlight current issues involving Operation Choke Point and discuss how financial institutions and businesses in the targeted industries may identify legal issues and navigate this regulatory environment.

A pardon well deserved
Shall Not Be Questioned
Chris Christie is clearly trying to boost his pro-gun credibility in whatever way he can given the extremely anti-gun legislature he deals with since he signed a full pardon of Shaneen Allen. This is wonderful news for Allen, and it will hopefully send a message to New Jersey's police officers and prosecutors. New Jersey isn't exactly going pro-gun, but maybe there will be a little more sanity in the enforcement of the laws.

Haters of self-defense face unrelenting defeat everywhere
Breitbart
Opponents of the Second Amendment and haters of self-defense are facing a relentless barrage of pro-Second Amendment and pro-self-defense legislation in state legislatures across the country. It is as if the GOP took a page out of the Democrats' book — improved, then applied it — so that just as the Democrats flooded legislatures with gun control measures in early 2013, Republicans are now flooding legislatures with bills broadening the exercise of Second Amendment rights and protecting the use of firearms for self-defense.
