A financial arm of General Electric is cutting off loans to stores that primarily sell guns. But general stores like Wal-Mart and sporting goods stores aren't affected.
GE Capital's decision is no surprise to Jeremy Alcede of Tactical Firearms.
"Every loan for an alcohol related store; gun store and hotel are being heavily scrutinized as they're trying to discourage banks from lending to those three types of businesses."
Alcede blames the feds for pressuring lenders. KTRH financial analyst Pat Shinn says it mostly affects gun buyers.
"Really the lending is GE Capital is loaning to individuals to finance their gun purchases."
Shinn says GE is based in Connecticut and employs the Sandy Hook elementary school shooter's father, as well as parents of victims. He thinks the decision is based on the fact the December school massacre happened so close to home.
