I would like to give a shout out to Michael Corbat, CEO of the giant banking concern Citigroup. It takes financial backbone to take a principled position on something as controversial as gun control.

Citigroup’s business customers will not be able to sell bump stocks or high-capacity magazines; nor will they be able to sell a firearm to anyone who isn’t at least 21 and passing a background check.

It’s interesting that it is the private sector that is stepping forward on behalf of a sane gun-control policy and not our elected officials. As a retired high-school teacher who still cares about the safety of kids sitting in a classroom, I am proud of the stance taken by Michael Corbat and Citigroup.
