Frankly, this is happening more and more...people at odds in business refusing to do business with each other? Remember that "if you voted for Obama,
we're not selling your firearms" store?" Similar. And I guess they each have every right to do it, as the dude says.This is all apparently from April
McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for
12 years. Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking 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 have become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories.
At this point I interrupted him and asked “Can I possible 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 what my business.”
“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 one I know that BofA 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 right?” Mr Fox confirmed that it was. At which point I told him that the
meeting was over and there was nothing let for him to say. I think it is import 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 can not in good conscience support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of
America credit cards as payment for our products.

ETA: I bet it's just credit cards, not bank/checking/debit cards where the money is yours
and not a line of credit. Anyone know?
Here's another person claiming he actually got an answer from BoA"
As you could imagine this made me furious…After countless hours on the phone with BANK OF AMERICA I finally got a manager in the right
department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for FURTHER REVIEW …HER EXACT WORDS WERE AS FOLLOWS…
“WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and GUN PARTS ON THE INTERNET “
And an article reviewing this claim: www.dailyfinance.com...
And an apparent response from Bank of America:
Bank of America cannot discuss a specific account due to privacy reasons but Anne G. Pace, writing on behalf of Bank of America, states “I want
to assure you and your organization that we do not have a policy that would deny banking services to entities because they are in the firearms
Pace goes on to write “We honor the rights and freedoms provided for in the U.S. Constitution and its amendments, including the Second
Further investigation has shown that Bank of America is the credit card provider for Bass Pro Shops, a national firearms retailer. Read more:
So it might appear they are only concerned about internet sales? Maybe...
