Bank of America cancels A Business Account

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I just got off the phone with McMillan Mfg. (I don't trust Snopes much anymore) and the company spokesperson verified the actions of Bank of America and thanked me for checking before putting this message out. Anyone banking with BOA should definitely think
about finding another banking institution!!

I checked it out on snopes and it's true. Customers of
BOA cannot use their credit or debit cards to purchase guns or ammo until
further notice

From the Owners of McMillan Mfg in Phoenix , Arizona

McMillan Mfg in Phoenix , Arizona , was contacted by Bank of America and
informed that they will no longer be allowed to use their services ( Bank of
America ) because they are in the firearms business and support the second

McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group
International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12

Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking,
Global Commercial Banking (Bank of America) came to my office.

He scheduled the meeting as an "account analysis" meeting in order to
evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them.

He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5
years and has become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of

At this point I interrupted him and asked "Can I possibly save you some time
so that you don't waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that
because we are in the firearms manufacturing business you no longer want my

"That is correct", he says.

I replied "That is okay, we will move our accounts as soon as possible. We
can find a 2nd Amendment friendly bank that will be glad to have our
business. You won't mind if I tell the NRA, SCI and everyone I know that
Bank of America is not firearms-industry friendly?"

"You have to do what you must", he said.

"So you are telling me this is a politically motivated decision, is that

Mr. Fox confirmed that it was.

At which point I told him that the meeting was over and there was nothing
left for him to say.

I think it is important for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd
amendment "right to keep and bear arms" should know when a business does not
support these rights.

What you do with that knowledge is up to you. When I don't agree with a
business' political position, I cannot, in good conscience support them.

We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment
for our products.

I am fine with you re-posting it. . . . . . . . Thank for your support.

I urge all of my friends to do the same! If I could only get everybody to
stand up for the Constitution of The United States we might not have this
problem! By the way, Bank of America is a supporter of Obama.

Be Afraid, America! Be Very Afraid!!!!

    Bank of America has done this with several other companies in the last few weeks. This is information that does need to get out.
