LAS VEGAS — What does the gun industry think of Operation Choke Point?
Last week at the 2015 Shot Show, which is the industry’s largest trade exhibition, The Daily Signal asked attendees what they think of the controversial government initiative. The program, which was designed by the Justice Department in 2012, has been criticized for targeting the firearms industry and driving legal business owners underground.
