Nah, they just sell them to other nations for peace. Or something.

Funny seeing BoA showing a conscious about guns when before, when they ripped off thousands of people with the fraudulent mortgage scams and destroyed many lives financially with no concern for the damage or the evil that they did.

So, what they are really doing right now is totally without any merit either real or implied, for what they are doing here with this BS.

All this does is expose their grand hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy for the world to see, but that which we already knew.

I suspect the real reason is otherwise. Yeah, they may be making a play for left leaning customers, but I'd bet the real reason is they see bad things in the gun manufacturers future and are playing it safe by not making the loans.

Taxpayers bailed them out to the tune of 45 billion if I recall right. Half of which came from 2nd Amendment supporters and they should remember that.

It's a snip poor attempt.

Since the biggest customers of assault weapons is military and law enforcement.

Bank of America can go to hell.

Right along with Walmart, and Dicks and the rest.

Since this is perfectly acceptable I say Big pharma stops making birth control.

Since 'democracy' is a two way street.

Are you on the Board of Directors of a bank which finances Merck?

make decisions that harm other businesses, and then buy them out for pennies on the dollar.

all the while having useful idiots applaud what you do as it was done in the pretext of gun control. har har har. life is funny.

Remington seems to have harmed itself pretty thoroughly, by counting on Clinton winning the election.

They stated "military-style", not military weapons.

Pure political posturing on their part.

Although they may be pissed off at the Military because of all those lawsuits they lost about overcharging military members and fraudulent foreclosures on the same...

We all know what they meant.

The thing no military in the world carries.

The Civilian AR-15.

In a post fact world, that doesn't matter.

From coast to coast the AR-15 has been designated as a military type/style firearm and it is a weapon of war. Despite that being complete nonsense.

Ha Ha!! I had to say it. Unfortunately by now they probably have hundreds of billions, so it won't make much of a difference.

you know, my 1st credit card was/ is a bank of america card.

Ive kept the limit under 10k and have used it for potentially sketchy purchases, like craft internet, or big box bozos that I rarely shop.

with this news I will break with nostalgia and completely stop using their card. probably meaningless to them, but my 830 credit score is now something they will not ever benefit from again.

blow me B of A

ps
I have bought countless guns, gun parts etc.. on that card over the years...at least 15k , their loss

Should banks be free to discriminate?


That's an outstanding question. I would expect in a world where a business can be forced to bake cakes for gays, take wedding photos of gays, and hell, even do business with people of other races and religions from their own under penalty of law that no, a bank cannot discriminate based on someone exercising their Constitutional Rights. This is corporate activism and it's wrong, especially within an industry like banking which has survived only off of tax payer dollars.
